Big Trout and Sea Trout Streamer

Category: Streamer Leaders
This particular leader has been specifically modified for seatrout fishing: a 3X tippet behind a 2X tippet. If a 3X is to limp, remove and use the 2X in its place.
A good all-around taper for seatrout fishing.

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.
