    This is my tapered leader of choice for my 7-wt. I use it throwing larger topwater and streamers for largemouth, but also when chasing reds in the marsh. 12-lbs is perfect for both applications. Just add a small shock tippet (20 lbs fluoro) if you're chasing reds over oyster beds.

    I have used many of the warm water/bass, leaders over the years, and these are far the best. they throw big flies really well and are very tough, I recommend pairing them with the rio bass tippit. It makes a great combination for any smallmouth or even largemouth bass fishery.

    Love these leaders anytime I'm using a streamer or a popper. Bass and trout, this is one of my favorite leaders!

    the guys at the shop recommended these to me after moving up to throwing some larger flies and it’s made a huge difference for me. Seems well made and casts big flies really well.
