RIO Big Nasty leaders are short, powerful fly fishing leaders designed to cast big, wind resistant or heavy flies.  These fly fishing leaders are made of a medium stiff nylon that is very abrasion resistant and is aggressive enough to handle powerful fly lines and nasty, gnarly flies.  RIO Big Nasty fly fishing leaders have a powerful butt section and taper that allow easy turnover with large flies like streamers, bass bugs and terrestrials.  These are great leaders for windy days, too.  Like all RIO fly fishing leaders, the Big Nasty leaders feature a hand tied perfection loop for quick attachment to fly lines with loops.

Pair the RIO 6' Big Nasty fly fishing leaders with the RIO InTouch Big Nasty fly line for a powerful fly fishing setup for bass, big trout and more.

RIO Big Nasty tippet material is the perfect compliment to the Big Nasty leaders.
