 Great all around leaders (from prior model)
Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Fish Don't Escape, Easy To Store, Easy To Handle
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: Great Leader, especially paired with RIO fly line - as the loops can interlock and you can have a leader on board in less than 30 seconds, which can be great when needing to switch streamside.
