Guide Reviews, Video, and Sales on Sea Trout Steelhead PolyleadersÐ This tapered Polyleader is one that we find especialy useful fishing modest sized rivers and estuaries. It provides a nice alternative to shorter and longer Polyleaders in the Salmon & Steelhead Series.
Key features: This is our favorite small river and estuary Polyleader.
Why choose this 8 ft Polyleader? Sure, this is extremely subjective opinion. The shorter Polyleaders are our preference when fishing the smallest rivers where anadromous fish are the target; the 10 ft Polyleaders are our favorites fishing floating to intermediate Polyleaders in larger rivers and lakes. For modest streams and estuaries, the 8-footer seems just right.
Tippet Options: We add level or tapered mono or fluorocarbon tippet to these Polyleaders.
Core strength and tippet compatibility: 24 Lb mono core. We usually use tippets in the 8 lb to 12 Lb range for our sea-run trout fishing, depending on fly and fish size. These will cast any of our usual streamers, buggers, wet and dry flies, but generally not the heavy, monster Intruder-style versions of fish-food.
PolyLeader Length: This is an 8 ft Polyleader to which you add your tippet with a perfection loop or surgeon's knot.
