Swan river tailor leaders

Post by daniel horne » Thu Oct 31, 2019 12:19 pm

Hi guys, iv been experimenting with making my own leaders there’s plenty of info out there but I want local knowledge

Starting to really get in to the swan Tailor on my 8 weight and loving it but after a decent battle a bust off with a monster

So my question is what leader And tippets are people having success with?

I’d love some good info to knock out a few New leaders for the weekend

Thanks guys

A short bite Tippett of 30 lb should see you land most fish. You'll still get the occasional bite off, and will need to check your leader after every fish.
Keep total length of your leader around 9 feet, unless you are fishing a floating line and wish to get deeper.
