RIO’s new hand tied tarpon leader takes all the guesswork out of your tarpon fishing.
Designed from years of testing and countless feedback from the best Florida Keys guides, our leader is ready to fish out of the package. Simply loop to the end of your line then tie on a fly. The 10ft design is tied with a heavy butt section for wind penetration and turnover, a class tippet for rod and fish protection, and a fluorocarbon bite tippet for abrasion resistance. Available in 20 and 30lb class tippets, with 60, and 80lb fluorocarbon bite tippet. RIO’s leaders are tied with advanced 100% strength knots and they’re the perfect choice for all tarpon destinations
