Umpqua Perform X Finesse Leaders



Umpqua Perform X Finesse Leaders are 13-foot nylon leaders with a long taper designed to deliver small flies with delicate presentations and long drag-free drifts.  Perform X Finesse Leaders are ideal for spooky fish in flat, clear water when a longer leader and perfect presentations are the rule.  Perfect for fishing small dries on technical waters.  With an excellent breaking strength to diameter ratio, Perform X Finesse Leaders also have the strength to hold onto that big fish and get it to the net.  

One leader per package.  Each leader has a Perfection Loop already tied onto the butt of the leader.

Ideal For:
