Airflo Trout Floating PolyLeader


Options:

$10.00

These are floating "butt sections" to which you simply add tippet, or a transition piece and then tippet. They come in 5' and 8' versions and feature a welded loop on the butt end so that you can easily attach to your fly line via loop-to-loop connection. The Light Trout versions here feature a medium mono core and are best suited for line weights 4-7wt or where medium diameter tippets are needed.

Please select your option(s) to add to your cart.

The Airflo Trout Polyleaders may well be the best dry fly leader butts made. These things are so easy, long lasting, and wildly effective.  They float like a dream too and almost never need any additional floatant.

These are floating "butt sections" to which you simply add tippet, or a transition piece and then tippet.

The Trout versions here feature a medium weight mono core and are best suited for line weights 4-7wt or where medium or larger diameter tippets are needed. Great choice for "dry/dropper" rigs!!!!

******Please note that these things will work just fine for ANY fish or fly that requires 2X-4X tippet or so. They are not "Just for Trout",  and work exceptionally well for light bass and bluegill type stuff. Typical industry discrimination to call them "Trout Leaders".


* 5' or 8' Polyurethane floating, tapered butt section. Just add tippet! (or transition and tippet)
* Superior turnover
* Long lasting
* Will turn over tippets from 4-12' (mostly recommended is 4-6')
* No water spray or retention
* Ready looped on the butt end for attaching to fly line
* Mono connector for attaching the tippet in a variety of ways
* Non-toxic- polyurethane

The Trout Polyleaders here have an exposed mono "connector" on the front end of 0X or .011". You can either tie a perfection loop in the end of this and go straight to tippet, or blood knot or surgeons knot a transition piece and then loop the tippet.

For tippets of 2X, you should be able to go straight from connector to tippet. For thinner tippets, it is really best to tie a 1-2' piece of "transition" and we usually go 2X and then loop-to-loop for the final, thinner diameter, say 3X, 4X or 5X. 

***It is recommended that you don't go any heavier than 12lb breaking strength on any connector or tippet piece to avoid potential breaking of the butt section itself.
