We take an extraordinary amount of pride in our knotted trout leaders. Each leader is hand tied with a passion that began over 20 years ago. Each section and knot is carefully inspected and measured, in order to meet our highest standards. Our commitment to quality and attention to detail is unmatched anywhere.
Each leader is hand tied with a passion that began over 20 years ago.
Our knotted trout leaders are constructed by using a proven formula which consists of a 60% butt, 20% taper and a 20% tippet section. For the butt section we utilize Maxima Chameleon which has one of the toughest finishes on the market. It’s a stiff monofilament that transfers the energy from your fly line to the fly extremely well. The taper section continues with Maxima Chameleon as it steps down in diameter width. This line has the unique property of changing hues to match the color of the surroundings becoming virtually invisible underwater. The last section, the tippet, we switch to a super soft monofilament allowing you to present your fly delicately for a naturally free drift.
All knots are
We can honestly say after years of field testing on all types of water conditions there’s no comparison between the performance of a knotted leader vs. a knotless leader. Knotted leaders are extremely efficient and effective at transmitting, absorbing and dispersing the casting energy from your fly line down to your fly. This Results in a fly that turns over properly and accurately, the difference between a success and a failure.
Built in loop on the butt end provides an ideal
loop to loop connection with your fly line.
Our hand tied knotted trout leaders are available in three lengths: 7.5’, 9’ and 12’. These are ideal for most if not all stream situations. The pre-tied perfection loop makes for a quick line to leader connection. These leaders have a relatively stiff butt section, so we recommend that you stretch them out once (nice and straight) after rigging up.
