Hand tied custom technical trout leaders with butt sections tied from Hard Maxima Chameleon, mid sections from Maxima Green, and tippet from RIO. These leaders are my own personal recipe developed from three decades of flyfishing, some of which has been over some of the toughest trout on the planet, from the gin clear waters of the tailwaters of the TN and VA, to the selective fish of the Henry's Fork in Idaho, Missouri River in Montana, Paradise Valley Spring Creeks in Montana, Silver Creek in Idaho, and more. Butt sections are tied from dark brown Maxima chameleon which offers zero glare unlike regular mono leaders that are the majority of what are sold. These are low viz stealth leaders that don't shine and spook fish. Plus they turn over like a dream. Our 7.5 foot and 9ft leaders are great all purpose ones, while our specialized 12ft leaders are highly sought after for use on selective, difficult trout and are highly regarded as one of the finest you can fish over tailwater fish of the Smith, Jackson, Watauga, and South Holston.
