Ask Curated a question about this product:

The Orvis Mirage Knotless Leader 2 Pack contains two tapered fluorocarbon fly-fishing leaders. These leaders are especially effective for fishing subsurface flies/ as Mirage is virtually invisible underwater. With a specific gravity of 1.76/ it breaks surface tension quickly and sinks quicker than nylon/ which is perfect for nymphing. Fluorocarbon materials also retain their knot and tensile strength in water/ and it is more abrasion-resistant than mono which means you can use smaller diameter tippets. These leaders are preferred for nymphing/ streamers/ and other subsurface flies especially in gin-clear waters or where fish are educated. Key Features:

  • 2 Pack – Comes with two knotless tapered leaders.
  • Tapered Leader Design – This provides better casting and turnover when fishing big flies.
  • 100% Fluorocarbon – These leaders are more abrasion- resistant than mono leaders/ and they virtually disappear underwater.

Nylon versus floral carbon. For me the cost of Flo

I’ve experienced somewhat negative results with the strength of Orvis 5xand6x floral carbon tippet material. I have an Orvis leader making kit that I find is much stronger than the new material that I recently purchased

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.
