RIO Steelhead/Salmon leaders feature a glacial green color to blend into the water better. Specifically designed for anadromous species like steelhead and salmon, this non-glare knotless leader has a thicker butt of slightly stiffer copolymer for propelling large fly fishing flies. This leader is prefect for fly fishing Great Lakes steelhead and salmon as well as fly fishing salmon in Alaska and the rest of the West Coast as well as fly fishing Atlantic Salmon on the East Coast and in Europe. Tough design keeps these large powerful fish in check as you're fighting a large King Salmon on your doubled-over fly fishing rod. Our go to leader in the fly shop when fly fishing steelhead in the Milwaukee River and surrounding local waters.
