Umpqua's 8 Foot Bass Leader is great for throwing big flies like the Schmidterbug to Mr. Bronzeback or Bucketmouth.  A stiffer butt section gives the leader help in giving power to help turn big flies over.  The 8 foot length is great for fly fishing for bass as it is short enough to still maintain control and power with larger bass flies yet not too short to lose some stealth.  The monofilament these bass leaders are built from are designed to stay strong in abrasive environments.  As is true with all of our fly fishing leaders, there is a pre-tied loop in the butt.
