Rio Steelhead/Salmon Leaders 12ft



The 12-foot RIO Steelhead and Salmon Leaders are perfect for fishing floating lines on switch rods or Spey rods.  RIO's Steelhead and Salmon Leaders are perfectly designed for anadromous species such as steelhead and all types of salmon. Its glacial green color and non-glare finish disappear in all water conditions. Its knotless taper has a thicker butt section and uses a slightly stiffer co-polymer for turning over larger flies. This is also a highly abrasion-resistant leader.
