Leeda Profil Casts are regarded as some of the finest tapered tippets available to buy in the fly fishing world. Leeda Profil produce these tippets with a super strong stiff butt sections running through to a very fine and delicate point. These properties allow your fly to turnover smoothly when casting to create a much more precise and softer landing on the water surface which will result in more takes.

We have these in 9ft (so no need to cut down those leaders anymore to get the right size). Each length of leader is available in sizes 3lb, 4lb & 5lb (for all you ultra-light tippet fans). Specification of the leaders and their profiles can be seen in the table below:

 Size Tip Diameter (mm) Loop Colour Lb
5X 0.16 Green 3.0
4X 0.18 Yellow 4.0
3X 0.20 Blue 5.0

 

Tapered Leader to Fly Line Connections:

Most fly lines now come with a welded loop at the tip, we find the best way to attach your tapered leader is to tie a perfection loop (click here for tying instructions) in the butt end of your leader, and then use a loop-to-loop connection to attach it to your fly line. This way has the added advantage that should you wish to change your leader (for a longer/shorter/thinner one), then it's simply a case of loop-to-loop connecting the new leader.

Should your fly line not already have a welded loop on the tip, then our favourite way to attach a tapered leader is with a needle knot (click here for a fantastic demo of the Needle Knot).
