You have a nice rod, a smooth reel, and a deluxe line, but without a quality RIO Powerflex Trout Leader, you won't have much of anything when it comes to the fish count at the end of the day. The Powerflex can turn over heavy indicators and cut through the wind as well as gently deliver the most delicate of dry flies.

  • Advanced copolymer technology provides high strength and abrasion resistance, allowing you to hook and land more fish
  • Powerful butt section cuts through the wind and can turn over heavy indicators
  • Nimble tippet allows you to gently deliver the smallest dry flies

    This is my go to leader for most situations. Its priced well and holds up really good.

    A Single Mistake - Get the 3 Pack!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I accidentally purchased a single leader intending to purchase a three pack. It's more economical, and always nice to have a backup (or two!!) if Ive caught myself in a snag or have otherwise fouled my leader. Still a trustworthy product, even if there's only one in the pack!


      Great leader for the price, these are the first leaders that I've bought and they work great.

      Best on the market

      These are the only leaders I use. Great presentation and great quality. I always have 3 packs of all sizes on hand.

        I love these leaders and at the price I often go through these faster than I should, just because I am lazy and don't always want to add tippet. The 3 pack on a different page is a good option for the utility sizes like 4x or 5x, and I use these single packs for sizes I don't fish as often, such as 2x,3x, 7x.

        One tip is to string up your rod first thing on a trip or when you get to the water before you put on your waders, set up camp, etc. That will help reduce the coiled line memory and you will get better presentation.

        Awesome leader.

          I love rio leaders. I feel like they work even better once they sit in the water for a bit when they are new. Once they are broken in your unstoppable.

          Great Leader

            Can never have too much extra Leader - I got this for my boyfriend as a little something extra for his birthday and he's always excited to get restocked.
