RIO's Fluoroflex Trout tapered leaders are the solution when a nearly invisible presentation is required for wary fish.

RIO's trout Fluoroflex leaders are made of 100% fluorocarbon, and are the perfect solution for when a nearly invisible presentation is required in clear water and for spooky fish. Each leader has high abrasion resistance and excellent tensile and knot strength, and have a long butt section that will turn over flies effortlessly.


  • 100% fluorocarbon for the utmost in stealth
  • Long butt section for great turnover and presentation
  • Hand tied perfection loop in the butt for quick rigging

    We have these RIO leaders in 9ft lengths only. Each leader is available in sizes 4X, 5X & 6X.

    Specification of the leaders and their profiles can be seen in the table below:

    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).
