Warm Water & Steel Leaders

The other night my buddy from work and I did a little fly fishing for bass at Memorial Lake. Had a great time as well. But I had something on that was big! More than likely a big pickerel or musky. Took my top water fly real fast, I pulled then it pulled back twice as hard! Snap!

What kind of steel leaders can be used with a fly?

Re: Warm Water & Steel Leaders

Ok is it me or is something posting an ad in my post here? First sentence the words "fly fishing" is underlined and when you hover your cursor over it shows a link to Cabelas.

???

Re: Warm Water & Steel Leaders

I have never used the pre-made steel leaders that include a swivel and snap ring with a fly rod. I have attached wire directly to the fly on some bluefish flies that I use. Cabelas sells a tool that creates a nice loop in the wire. I also bought a wire that can be knotted, but have not tried it yet, but seems like it should work ok.

As far as the underlined links???? I have noticed the same thing, and asked the same question!!!!

Good luck, Tony
