RIO Products is introducing two new saltwater leaders for 2011, the Redfish/Seatrout Leader and the Light Saltwater Shock Leader. Both the new leaders feature a perfection loop at the end of the front taper for ease of rigging. They both have a stiff butt and taper designed to help cast larger flies and cope with typical saltwater winds.
The Redfish/Seatrout Leaders are clear and have high abrasion resistance. These 9-foot leaders are available from 8-pound up through 20-pound test. They will retail for $4.95.
The Light Saltwater Shock Leaders are 10-foot leaders, tapering to 16-pound tippet with an ultra-tough fluorocarbon shock tippet on the end. There are three models available in the Light Saltwater Shock Leader series; one with a 16-pound shock tippet, one with a 20-pound shock tippet and one with a 45-pound shock tippet. They will retail for $7.95.
