The Story

PolyLeaders are like mini fly lines that are constructed the same way with a PVC coated monocore. They are tapered and act as a natural extension of your line tapering down to your tippet. They cast beautifully, and come in four densities that allow you to fish the entire water column. They are available in Clear Floating, Intermediate Sinking (1.5 inches/second), Fast Sink (3.9 inches/second), and Super Fast Sink (6.1 inches/second). Each leader has an exposed monocore tip to attach your tippet in whatever fashion you prefer from blood knot to triple surgeon's, or tie a perfection loop for a loop-to-loop connection.

Both Trout and Salmon are available in all four densities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sink rate. Sinks quickly. Had no issue getting 10+ feet deep with a weighted streamer to get down to the tail water trout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Versatile Thank a Sink Tip I fish with floating lines 90% of the time, but occasionally I do need to get down. Swapping out spools and line while on the water for those 10% moments you need depth is annoying and is something I know I'd likely not do very often. PolyLeaders solve this problem by allowing you to get down similar to a sink tip, but by only changing leaders. In just a minute I can go from a tapered nylon leader to a PolyLeader to get down and get down fast. Better yet, you can carry a full set of 7' and 10' PolyLeaders at all three available sink rates so that you have options on the water. To have those kind of options with sink tip lines would require you to carry a ton of spools and lines on the water, an investment and added weight that nobody really wants to have. I highly recommend PolyLeaders as a great alternative for those who need to get their flies down, but who don't want to deal with sink tip lines.
