7' Trout and 10' salmon poly leaders

You'll get fantastic control on your line with our fly fishing leader.


The fly fishing leader line you need when you need to go deep. New poly leaders sink faster, cast better, and attach easier than other sink tip leaders. The high-strength, level monofilament core is coated with a supple tapered polymer for super turnover and fast sink rates. A welded leader loop means a quick connection to your fly line.
  • Trout leader: Add 4-12' of 2- to 12-lb. tippet for custom leader lengths.
  • Salmon: Add 4-12' of 8- to 12-lb. tippet for custom leader lengths.
    Both trout and salmon available in 3 densities:
  • Intermediate Sinking 1.5 inches/second;
  • Fast Sink 3.9 inches/second;
  • Super Fast Sink 6.1 inches/second.

      Excellent addition to fly kit - 3/20/2015

      These weighted leaders help me get down to the level I need when the fishing demands below surface flies. Depending on the level of sink needed they provide the necessary speed of drop.

      Adds Flexibility to your Floating Line - 12/1/2014

      Where legal for Atlantic Salmon, you can greatly simplify the line equation and rig a floating line and use the leader to adjust for water conditions. I found the leaders particularly helpful in low water. A micro-swivel can be added to remove line twist and add weight. Not quite as easy to cast as an integrated line.

      Lost the fish but didn't break the leader and upon inspection, leader is in good shape for fishing in an area full of rocks

      What Happened! - 10/8/2013
      By: from Pulaski, NY

      Leader broke off 4 inches from the butt end of the leader. We've never salmon fished before, and we broke off hooks from the 20lb fluorocarbon that we fell back too. Would have not been surprised for a thinner section of the Orvis poly leader to snap but not the butt end. Makes me suspect it was defective.

      Leaders Fine - Website Not - 8/28/2013
      By: from Derbyshire, England

      These leaders are fine and do what they are supposed to, however the UK website wasn't very helpful as it stated the leader colours but not the sink rate (you need to look at the US site or third party sites for this.

      Great product - 12/28/2012
      By: from Louisville, Kentucky

      This was much cheaper then buying sinking line for my reel and even cheaper then buying a new spool for my reel. This really gets your flies down in that slack water behind some riffles so you can target them big Ol trout.
