Rio and Umpqua Leader Tying Kits

Tying your own leaders offers the fly fisherman numerous benefits over machined pulled tapers.  First of all, there are literally thousands of hand-tied leader formulas that provide the angler with a broad solution to their specific leader requirements. You have complete control of designing a leader that will turn over properly and lay out straight for the type of fishing and casting techniques you use.

Replacing sections as they are consumed or lost is easy and the dynamics of the leader is never lost.  In fact, the back two-thirds of a leader will easily last the entire season.  And, the knots helps control the placement of shot and indicators when nymph fishing.

Finally, hand-tied leaders also offer superior economics over knotless tapered leaders.  Typically, hand-tied leaders cost 1/10 that of extruded versions.
