    My favorite leaders for big bugs. They turn over most bass bugs and streamers really well. For really big stuff or heavy cover I like to cut them a little shorter

    I’ve been using this leader to throw the large stuff without issue. Knocked off 1 star for price.

    Been using these leaders for the past 2 years when I’m not chasing trout. Hands down these are the best

    This leader is perfect for throwing large bass flies. It has a stiff butt section that tapers down to a variety of pound tests. I found the 10 lbs leader to work well with both poppers and streamers on my 6wt for LMB and SMB.

    Strong but Long

    These are great for all bass applications but I’ve found them a bit long for me at 9ft. I tend to cut about a foot or more off and add a blood knot. Not as smooth of a taper but easier turn over for big flies.

    Perfect Leader

    A bit spendy, but worth it. They turn over the big stuff and you don't pick up as much gunk on knots like you would with a home made leader.

    These leaders do a great job of casting any warmwater patterns, from smaller streamers to big poppers. They've held their own against big smallmouth and the occasional carp.

    These are great quality leaders ready to go. Excellent for poppers and streamers, or any fishing that requires a little more strength in your leader. They also work great for adding tippet as you use more line on the leader.
