Flat Butt Tapered leaders


Product Information


Flat Butt Leaders are an innovative new generation of tapered leader designed to provide fantastic presentation. The purpose of any tapered leader is to provide improved turn-over 

The transfer of energy is enhanced by the structure of the Flat leader. the transfer of energy from the line to the leader, and thereafter on to the fly is smoother and more efficient. Therefore, more energy may be utilized in directing the casting loop to the target. Certain of these advantages are achieved in view of the fact that the reduction in stiffness, or conversely the increase in limpness is reduced in the area of the fast taper and tip, where this feature is advantageously preserved.

The flat-butt portion of the leader provides other advantages  there is a reduced tendency for twisting to occur in the leader as it is being wound on the reel. Furthermore, the casting loop formed by the leader remains in a plane which is generally flatter than it would otherwise be with a circular cross section.

The elliptical configuration provides a greater area for achieving contact with the water surface, thus providing for better flotation. The resistance generated by the air is also reduced with the controlled cross section, and there is a reduction in the tendency in the butt section to become kinked when the leader is being bent around the tip portion of the rod. Also, this configuration has been found to permit a novice to achieve a more flat or straight leader portion.

provide an improved fly line leader which has a progressively reduced mass from butt-to-tip which includes a tippet segment of generally circular cross section along with a butt segment of generally elliptical cross section, the fast taper transition segment extending between the butt and tippet segments also having a generally circular cross section

Available in 9ft or 12ft  4X 5X , they are ideal for use with all  flies used on our streams,rivers,lakes
These unique leaders have a flat butt for additional suppleness and ease of knotting - the yellow-coloured butt and taper make these leaders highly visible to the fly-fisher while maintaining stealth with a clear point section. Produced from pure nylon, they are supple from butt to point and have no memory, making them ideal for delicate presentation
