Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by strong leader These Orvis Super Strong leaders are just that. I I have landed a 25 inch Rainbow using this leader. They are easy to straighten and easy to attach tippet. I would recommend these to any fly fisher. they turn over well during the casting stroke. May 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new go-to leader I've tried a few different brands of leaders and have stopped at these ones. They're cheaper than others and have a higher breaking strength for the diameter. Orvis always has quality products and these leaders only further prove my point. Try these, you won't be disappointed. September 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by best leaders out there when i go fly fishing for trout, it has to be Orvis leaders hands down for the diamater they are the stongest 6x i have found! I have lost very few trout to the leaders breaking compared to others or using tippet. May 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Orvis Fly Leader Always did and always will use Orvis products. Their line has never failed. February 22, 2011

A: 
Yes, you can but depending on your throwing ability it could be difficult. However with a 5/6 weight rod or bigger you should have no problems throwing a size 6 or 8 bug with a 5x leader. If you do hook a big fish though you may find that you have lost your bug since a 6 or 8 will bring bigger fish than a 5x is usually designed for.

A: 
yes you can put a larger hook on this leader. remember as you change flies you reduce the length of the leader making your tapered leader go from a 5x to a 4x

A: 
You can use a 5x leader with a size 6 or 8 fly although you'd likely be better off fishing a larger diameter.

The "5x" nomenclature is a recommendation from the manufacturer as to which size leader (tippet) to use with what size fly. A simple rule is to divide the hook size of the fly you are using by 3 to get the recommended tippet size +/- 1x size, etc.

A: 
I use a 5X most of the time but if I use the fly rod for LM bass I use a 7X with only a 7 foot leader. Less line breaks.

5x tippet is pretty much used with smaller flies. you might find it harder to cast and brake at the eyelet of the hook when tying the larger fly on

A: 
5/6 weight rod and reel with 5 or 6 weight backing, line and 3x leader and tippet. Start throwing smaller bugs and work your way up to bigger poppers and sub-surface wooley buggers and youll start landing some big freshwater fish.

well I would start out with a floating line. Use a 9ft tapered leader say a 3x then you can tie on lighter tippet to that. that should work very well for you.

A: 
It all depends on the species of the fish you are after. i assume that you have heard the terms 3 weight, 7, it goes up to 14 wts. this is the actual line weight, usually you would want a lighter weight line for more delicate siutations such as mountain trout fishing and as you progress your way to freswater and then to saltwater, you want a thicker and more durable line due to the increase in water size. the leader is just the same sizes range from 0-7x, 0 being the thicker and 7 being the smallest diameter where you tie your fly on. the rule of thumb is the smaller the fly, the bigger number on the leader your would want. bigger flies require thicker leaders. hope that answers your question.

A: 
the x designation is about the tip diameter and the weight the leader will hold. 0x is the thickest and strongest. The species of fish and size of flies you are fishing for will determine the tippet size

A: 
Ox - 6x is a unit of measurement. just like hook sizes. Ox is heavier and 6x is finer. maybe( 12lbs Ox) and (6x 2lbs) most leaders will have the lb rating on the package. so if you are going for big fish try 2or3x leader. thats not to say you can't catch a big fish on 6x tippet. practice the heavier tippet first. then move on to the lighter stuff.

A: 
This refers to the size of the leader. Take some time and visit your local Bass Pro Shop and look at the back of the package. It will give you a guide to purchase the correct size leader based on the size of the fly your are throwing.

How much do you use?

Details: 
I am just starting to fly fish, and I know that you connect the leader to the fly line, and the tippet to the leader and all that, but I have one question. Do you attach the whole leader to the fly line or just a portion of it? I have the same question about tippet. I don't know wether you attach the whole tippet to the leader, or just part of it. Any help would be appreciated.

A: 
When i fix a new leader to my line, I always cut off the knotted loop and nail knot the leader to the fly line. Then, I go fishing. For Bass and Panfish a shorter leader will work fine. Only when Ive lost about a foot of leader do I add some tippet (double-surgeons knot). For trout and salmon you'll want 9ft of leader at all times. Hope this helps.

A: 
yes, attach the entire leader. I fish dry flies using a 9 foot 4x leader with 24 inches of 5x tippet attached. For nymphs I use a 7 1/2 foot 3x leader with 14 inches of 4x tippet. I fish for trout in Wyoming.

A: 
Attach the entire leader to your fly line and your fly to the thin end (tippet) of your leader.

Many experienced fly fishermen use the term "tippet" loosely. A tippet is just the last 24"-30" or so of your leader where it tapers down to a thin tip. The manufacturers of leaders sell level spools of this material that you can tie onto the end of your leader to restore the taper back to its original length, etc.

A: 
Maybe by now you've gotten your answer to your ques. and it will vary just abit. But normally you want a total length of 8-12 feet from line to fly. I like 9ft. because it coincides with the length of the pole. Also the tippet portion would be 3-4 ft.

A: 
well first what are you fishing for? the leader comes in different lengths. you buy 7ft 9ft 12ft. you tie on your leader to the flyline then you can add tippet to your leader, I would start with 2to 3feet of tippet.

A: 
I would just skip the tying of the leader and tippet sepeartely. when you purchase a tapered leader, it is cutting out the step to tie on a tippet. the tapered leaders have your tippet welded to the leader already. Plus, the Orvis leader has a no tie loop that makes attaching and removing it from your fly line that much easier.

A: 
Yes, you will attach the whole leader to a welded loop at the end of your line. Since this is a tapered leader the tippet is built-in, and so you do not have to attach any tippet. However, I usually get up to the meaty portion of the leader after several hours of fishing, so I will either switch-out the tapered leader entirely (depending on abrasion) or tie on about 3-6 feet of tippet to the leader depending on the conditions.
