Sinking Leaders & Tips
Sinking leaders are an important tool in fly fishing when targeting fish that are holding deep in the water column. They are designed to sink at a specific rate, allowing the angler to present the fly at the desired depth. Typically, sinking leaders are made of braided nylon or fluorocarbon and come in various sink rates, from slow-sinking to fast-sinking, to match the conditions of the water and the type of fly being used. A properly selected sinking leader will provide the angler with a more natural presentation of the fly and increase the chances of catching fish that are holding deep in the water column.
