All you need to get started fishing. A tapered leader with a butt section already tied into it. Pre-tied loop will allow you to connect directly to your fly line. Comes in a 3-pack.

A great do-it-all freshwater trout leader with great knot strength! It is also biodegradable to help reduce water waste! There are 3 leaders per pack. Solid all around option made by Scientific Anglers. Great for dries, nymphs, and small streamers!
