    Great product
    Ian Linfoot (Australia) | March 1st, 2021
    Works well on my 6wt. Nymph upstream and swing streamers back down. Turns a floating line into a sink tip with ease. Makes using a one rod set up all the more versatile.

    Great leaders to use for streamers when all you have is a floating line. Used in WV and it worked great.

    First time trying these leaders on with a 5 wt floating line. The sink rate seemed about right for the waters I fish but I’d like to try a faster sink rate. I’ve also used these in Stillwater for bass and panfish and they work well. No problem turning it all over with my 5wt.

    my favorite wet fly set up
    Michael (KY) | March 30th, 2020
    When swinging wet flies, this is the leader I use. The sinking leader helps the fly drop down to the feeding trout, all without having to had split shot or other weights.

    Adding a bit of versatility without the hassle
    Simon (Cape Town, South Africa) | March 31st, 2019
    I have put one of these in bag to rig up at the opportune moment when I need to get a little deeper and all I have is a floating line with me. Easy to pack and carry and no need to change spools if the fish are feeding below the surface. I aim to use this on my stillwater 5wt set-up but can see me using it on my 4wt trout spey set-up for Scandi style casting too.
