Product Description

These 5 ft Braided Leaders from Snowbee help line turnover when using long leaders and are a very simple and effective way of turning a floating line into a sink tip.

DETAILS

Made from a braided monofilament they taper down to provide the weight distribution that links the turnover energy in the fly line to the leader.

Having a braided construction, these leaders tend to have less memory than the equivalent polyleader and lower stretch / shock absorption.

These braided leaders have a loop at both ends making it easy to use a simple loop-to-loop connection to insert them between the fly line and your leader.

OUR OPINION

Using a sinking or intermediate braided leader is an easy and cheap way to convert a floating line into a sink tip, and you can easily change the braided leader to change the depth at which your flies are fishing.

Manufactures loop for fly line came undone. After I re-tied the leader it did not float for more than one hour. I have discarded this leader and added a touch of superglue to both loops of the intermediate braided leader.

First time using these leaders. Chose the fast sink and it does just that, but a little harder to cast than other braided leaders I've used in the past.

Very few on the market. But I find these very good to cast with and with a very good turn over at the end of the cast. Also good for fishing the dry fly. CK.

I use this as a connection between the line and tapered leader. I cut off the loop, feed two inches of line into the braid then secure the braid with a needle knot and superglue at the cut. I then cut the braid leaving about four inches free, feed the butt end of the tapered leader into the braid until it reaches the flyline. I then secure the cut end with a needle knot and superglue. I make sure that I have smoothed the glue and trimmed any loose fibres before the glue sets completely. Using this method I get a smooth knotless transmission from line to leader. The leader is then finished off with a nylon tippet.
