The Clinch River and South Holston are notorious for their wise trout who scrutinize even the smallest fly patterns in slow, clear water. At the first whiff of danger these fish will get a raging case of lockjaw. Our 12′ long leaders will keep your fly far from the fly line and they have looped butts so they are easy to use.
Use the 5X leader for mayfly and caddis patterns in the range of #16.
Use the 6X leader for midges and small Blue Wing Olives.
5X: 5 lb.
6X: 3.5 lb.
