Our tapered monofilament leaders provide the ideal combination of turnover, abrasion resistance, knot strength, and stealth.  Your leader is essential in making sure your fly is presented properly, and in making sure your hard earned fish stays connected.

    Quality Leaders

    These tapered leaders are great for turning over large steamers to small dries to stillwater nymphing setups. Can't beat the price either.

    These leaders are a part of my rig for tail water trout. It's like something is just not right if I don't have them.

    A good general purpose leader

    Published by Alan on 12th May 2015

    These Allen mono tapered leaders have been working well for me this season. I've used 4x, 5x, and 1x leaders for different applications.They are good general purpose tapers and the price is outstanding. I've used many others costing more and they do no more than these except eat from your wallet. Perhaps Allen will offer them in fluorocarbon at some future point. As a final testament to their performance, I stocked up on them in multiple sizes...

    Nice general-purpose leader.

    Published by Alan Berglund on 15th Apr 2015

    Used one of these yesterday (6x, 9ft) in the Driftless of WI and it performed well. The water had some murk to it so this material was a better choice than floro. The testament to it's performance is that the remaining leader is still on the reel and will be used next time. The reel is an older Allen Alpha. The leader price is a bargain as well. I've been very pleased with every Allen product that I've used: Blanks, reels, lines, leaders, hooks, tung beads and even flies. Great job folks!
