Based on Leo's Twisted Leader System ... A special thanks to Leo Gutterres!
These "Big Game" Twisted Leaders have many applications for the saltwater fly fisher as well as for heavy duty freshwater use. Main advantages:
- Extremely good turnover ... handles really large flies.
- Shock absorbing qualities of helical twist construction ... lose fewer fish!
- Strong and Durable ... the best choice for hard fighting fish in tough conditions.
This is a heavy-duty, specialized leader that is excellent for certain applications. Ideal for tarpon (babies to the big ones), peacock bass, stripers, redfish, snook, northern pike, large mouth bass, and many other species that demand a tough, great casting, shock absorbing leader. Even sailfish have been landed with this twisted leader.
The small fly in the photo to the right is a 3/0 Deceiver 5" in length. The larger flies are 8 - 9" long tied by Charlie Bisharat. It takes a Twisted Leader to turn these babies over!
Casts like a furled leader, but unlike furled leaders that are made with lightweight 2#, 4#, or 6# mono, these twisted leaders are constructed with heavier mono (20# test for most uses) resulting in a much stronger and more durable 'Big Game' leader.
Twisted leaders are inexpensive in the long run. For all but the largest and fastest species, these leaders last a long time with just tippet changes. Compare that to the longevity of a regular mono leader - no contest! Use sensibly ... inspect and replace after considerable use or catching large fish. If it shows wear, change it!
