Leaders & Backing 

XS Leader & Tippet Material 

 
Our Magic line and more recently Fluoro-Tec line, have become favourites with many anglers, but they need not fear… we believe that in the new XS tippet, we have materials that far exceed them. In the new XS Fluorocarbon, made for us by Japan’s foremost manufacturer, we have the finest, smoothest and most modern, durable fluorocarbon on the market today. 
In addition, through the introduction of advanced modern line technology, we have a ‘Spectre’ copolymer nylon, camouflaged in colour and with a strength and suppleness that has perhaps never been seen in game angling before. Sure to become the line of choice for any river or light-line stillwater specialists.

Completely clear, this material has low stretch but superior in-line and knot strength for excellent presentation and fish holding performance. With great suppleness and low memory this product is ideal for the dry fly angler especially and even suitable as a quality main line to be used with our Kuroshio and Raptor spinning reels. A smoother, softer, stronger, clear leader material than we have ever had before.

Leader Systems 

The Snowbee Leader System is the result of many years development, steadily tweaking the range to provide the perfect leader for any fishing situation. 
Fish don’t care how much you paid for your fancy rod or reel; if they can see the leader, or the presentation is poor, they’ll ignore your fly... simple as that! The Snowbee Leader System is the result of many years development, steadily ‘tweaking’ the range, to provide the perfect leader for any fishing situation. 
FL9 Fluorocarbon Leaders 
We all know the advantages of Fluorocarbon as a tippet material. Our new range of tapered Fluorocarbon leaders combine the benefits of fluorocarbon, with the convenience of a tapered leader. These 9ft leaders are ideal to assist presentation and turnover whether Stillwater or river nymph fishing, especially in crystal clear waters with extended fluorocarbon tippets. 
 
Available in 9ft lengths 
B.S. : 3lb, 5lb, 6lb & 8lb 
ML Monofilament Leaders 
A range of top quality tapered Monofilament Leaders, using our super strong, low diameter copolymer nylon material. The 9ft leaders have a long taper and short tippet for easy turn over, ‘ready to go’ general use, whilst the new range of ‘Camo’ coloured leaders are designed specifically for dry fly and light nymph fishing, especially in enclosed situations where a ‘stealth’ approach is all important. 
 
Available in 9ft lengths 
B.S. : 2.4lb, 3.2lb, 4lb, 6lb, 8lb, 10lb & 14lb 
 
MLSS Heavy Butt Salmon & Saltwater Leaders 
These specialist monofilament leaders have a heavier butt section to minimise hinge point, when turning over large flies. 
 
Available in 10ft lengths 
B.S.: 10lb, 12lb, 16lb & 20lb 
Both have neat welded loops on the butt end to allow simple ‘loop to loop’ connection to your fly line, with an 8” un-coated monofilament tip, with a Perfection Loop tied in the end, which can be cut off if not required. The thermoplastic polymer coating has a precision taper and a silky-smooth finish, to ensure a controlled turnover and presentation. The five different densities available allow accurate presentation of your fly at any chosen depth.
