RIO's Tapered Tarpon Leaders

RIO Products

Product Designer, Wayne Peterson talks about RIO's Tapered Tarpon Leader, a tapered leader designed for tarpon fly fishers with a 2ft length of fluorocarbon bite/shock material at the front.

By using a taper for the majority of the leader, rather than the standard level "class tippet", anglers will find this leader turns over better in wind, makes straighter presentation casts, and spooks less fish.
