From surf fishing to flats fishing or targeting Bass this is the perfect leader. The mirage series is far stronger than regular mono and invisible under the water so it's perfect for streamer fishing.

Fly fishing anglers chasing larger fish should consider using the Orvis Mirage Big Game leader. Made from fluorocarbon, these leaders have a low visibility in the water. The retained knot strength ensures knots do not slip. The taper is designed to help turn over large, bushy flies.
Ideal for
  • This is an abrasion resistant leader.
  • This is a quick sinking leader to help get flies deep.
  • This leader has good knot retention strength.
Not ideal for
  • This leader will sink quicker than nylon.

Another great product

Good leaders, get the job done. I bought these for saltwater fishing. They have just enough sink to get the fly down below my floating line. Wish I could say that I have caught tons of fish on these, but since I am new to saltwater ff, that part is still forthcoming.

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
