The Story

A tough leader for mean fish made with an almost indestructible titanium wire bite guard that holds up, fish after fish. In our field tests, as many as 50 fish were landed on a single leader. Complete with swivel to eliminate leader twist, and snap link for quick, easy fly attachment. Freshwater and saltwater.

7' intermediate leader with 9" bite guard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appreciate the quick service and performance. Fly fishing for pike in Western Nebraska and Minnesota.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've out This leader allows me the chance to chase the pike in the Cuyahoga River right in my back yard right after I've out! People have no idea of the fishing opportunities in our rivers in the spring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The correct product for the toothy critters A perfect product for me to use on a Fly Fishing Trip to the Bahamas. The 5th star will be added if the fish don't bite through my leader

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! A friend and I went up to Canada after Northern Pike. We took several different brands of bite wire/wire leaders. The Orvis Predator Poly Leader did the best by far. All the other leader material would get all curly after only a couple of fish. The Orvis leader would last all day before it showed signs of curling. We are going back again this summer and we will be taking the Orvis leaders exclusively. We caught lots and lots of fish (many over 30 inches) the last time and I never had a problem with the swivel breaking like some of the other folks have talked about. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too bungy The leader definitely is a great concept, could use stronger swivel, but the leader seems too bungy and limp for it too roll over a bigger fly. Fix those, I'd definitely buy more. I'll definitely give it a go to see how it really works.
