Fly Lines, Leaders & Tippets


Fly lines, fly leaders and fly fishing tippets are all key in fly fishing. These three types of fly lines work together to secure your catch. Fly leaders connect to fly lines, a fly tippet is a thin gauge line that connects the fly leader to the fly, and the fly line backing goes between the fly reel arbor and fly line to extend the length of the line on your reel. Anglers select their fly lines based on factors like the type of fish and compatibility with their rod and reel. Choosing the right lines can make the difference between a successful trip and an angling disaster. Find the best fly lines, leaders and tippets at FishUSA today.
