Our hand-tied trout leaders have been so popular with single hand fly anglers that we decided to add a trout switch hand-tied leader as well. Like our single-hand leaders, these two-handed leaders use Maxima Clear butt sections for its stiffness and durability.
Our Hand Tied Switch leader is designed to be the perfect 2-hand nymph leader and is made with a 60″ “knotless” section of 20-pound Seaguar fluorocarbon, designed to allow you to slide your indicator freely and quickly to change the length from your weight to the indicator.
We use fluorocarbon for this section because it’s less visible, more durable, stiffer, and tangles less than mono. These leaders work well with a variety of indicators and slipper bobbers, however, the Air-lock indicators are some of the easiest to use on them.
We use small, extremely strong owner swivels as they help eliminate line twist at the end of the leader and then add a tippet section. Use the drop-down menu to find the tippet size perfect for you (we recommend 3x for general purpose trout).
