Adds Flexibility to your Floating Line -

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.
Perfect extension to a fly line -
Casts like a integral part of you r fly line, turns over super nice.
Good Quality -

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! -
By: Greg0183 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 -

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.

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.
A Pleasure to Cast -

Excellent turnover with both single-handed and two-handed rods. I use the intermediate, fast, and extra fast sink on my switch rods often when swinging streamers and nymphs for both trout and steelhead. Connect a length of tippet using a loop-to-loop and you're ready to go! Excellent turnover, easy to cast, and gets to fly to the depth it needs to be in a hurry.
