Cast flies with powerful turnover performance with accurate control every time.

VARIVAS Tapered Leader Pro Dry FHT (Front Heavy Taper) design takes the worry out of casting, providing advantageous, powerful turn and accurate control performance. The new innovative Front Heavy Taper (FHT) design has the most drive force among VARIVAS’s reverse taper series. FHT design generates powerful casting with minimum wind resistance and stress reduction for turning over larger flies in difficult windy conditions. The leader colour is Misty Olive with a natural clear tip section that blends with the environment.

Features include:

  • VARIVAS Smooth Tech Coating increases durability by reducing friction and preventing water absorption.
  • VARIVAS Smart Connect thin design creates a smaller profile connection between the fly line and tapered leader.

    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).
