Martin's four section Baltic leader

Category: Saltwater
A Baltic sea trout leader, slightly long and sturdy. Useful on shooting heads too.
Requires a fly with a bit of weight to turn over properly - preferably in the size range 8-2.
Use a thinner tippet version for the smaller flies.

Since you got this far …


The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
