Category: SKU: FBL


A new innovation to the fly fishing industry is the recent launch of flat butt leaders that have many advantages over the typical round cross section leader:

  • Improved fly presentation
  • Progressively reduced mass from butt to tip which minimizes tendency to twist
  • The cross section at the butt is more elliptical and transitions to¬† a round tip section
  • Smoother and more efficient transfer of energy along the length of the leader
  • Reduction in leader stiffness and increased limpness
  • More supple with virtually no memory
  • Generally flatter loop because the leader remains in a “plane” to the water surface
  • Greater water contact provides for better floatation of dry flies
  • Increased suppleness from butt to tip with virtually no memory
  • Yellow 8′ butt & 7′ clear tip on 15ft leaders
  • Yellow 5′ butt & 4′ clear tip on 9ft leaders
  • Free pack of tippet rings with each purchase
