Rio Skagit Leader

FG icon
Rio Skagit Leader is the ultimate tapered leader for delivering big, heavy flies typically used with skagit shooting head systems. Its short overall length and abrupt taper give this leader the most powerful turnover possible so none of the energy generated during the cast is sacrificed in the final few feet. While leaders of level tippets are commonly used with Skagit heads, the hinging effect they generate hampers the turnover of bulky patterns. The Skagit Leader eliminates this effect for the smoothest delivery of the heaviest flies out there.
