Maxima Ultragreen Fishing Leader Spools

Maxima Ultragreen Fishing Leader Spools

Maxima Ultragreen leader tippet material is the number one choice of our Maxima-devoted anglers at the Caddis Fly Angling Shop. Like with Chameleon, some customers tie their own custom designed tapered leaders with Ultragreen, and some fish straight tippets from about 3' to as long as 12' using Ultragreen leader tippet material.

Not to be brand loyal to the point of being silly, we have customers who mix and match their leader materials too. Here is an example. A lot of our customers purchase Airflo Polyleaders or Rio Versileaders, and then add a 3' to 5' section of Maxima tippet material to fish for anything from salmon, steelhead, trout, bass, carp, and bull trout.

Maxima Chameleon and Maxima Ultragreen is also a decent match withRio MOW Tips when fishing for salmon and steelhead.

You will find that Maxima Ultragreen is a little more flexible than Chameleon, and this is referred in the industry as the quality of limpness. No, Ultragreen is not limp, and it still has most of the abrasion resistance as its Chameleon cousin, but its transparent green property makes it an excellent candidate, we believe, for presenting our flies in clear and shallow water situations.

One way to think about Chameleon and Ultragreen, is to carry Chameleon for dark periods, murky water, and deep presentations to fish that will either not see nor care if they do see your leader. Then you resolve to also carry Maxima Ultragreen for the conditions of bright midday sun, clear water, and shallow water of surface presentations. Make sense?
