Leaders

Welcome to Twig and Stream online shop.  We are pleased to offer for sale our hand tied leaders and indicators.

We tie these leaders here in Australia, to a traditional taper design that promises excellent turnover and presentation of nymphs, wet fly or dry. We use these leaders ourselves exclusively and for over ten years they have proven more reliable than commercially made leaders. They are made from Maxima nylon, which is one of the most resilient and abrasion resistant leader materials.

Note: If you are buying from outside Australia, please use the Intl. Post Buttons.

# The nymphing leaders come with 3 pre-treated pieces of indicator yarn, and with the existing knots, a nymph can be fished at 3 ,4, 5 or 6 ft depth. Find out more here: A simple nymph fishing system.

* The indicator yarn is pre-treated with floatant. It attaches to the leader very quickly easily (see pics) and slides down to next knot. There are some expensive and very fiddly options out there, these will save you money and valuable fishing time.

More information

The leader Butt is Maxima Chameleon for stiffness and turnover, the tippet is Maxima Green for suppleness, and slack presentation.
Maxima chameleon is very hard to see on water, so is great for stealthy fishing. Maxima green is clear and hard to see under water. Most seasoned anglers will vouch for the reliability of Maxima.

Each leader is quality controlled before packaging, each knot is tested for strength.

I also tie custom leaders to order, so if you want different length or strength. Contact me for details.
