Pre Tied Leaders

Drifting on the Fly DRIFTING ON THE FLY, FLY TYING FOR ALASKA FISHERIES Leave a Comment

Pre tied leaders are a must for the serious fisherman.  Having them on hand will keep you in the strike zone longer than if you have to tie them on the river.  I recommend a pips box for holding my tippets  that I tie in the winter each year. It will make you more efficient and you will catch more fish.  

I find for the kenai river bead rig I can get about a hundred pre tied tippets in one pips box.  This saves me A lot of time on the water.

For my standord Kenai river leaders I will start with 2-3 foot of 25-30 pound for a but sections.  Amnesia works well for this. Then work down from there in leader material size.  Depending on the water level of the river I will use a 9-11 foot leader.

We wish everyone to have a great holiday season and look forward to the start of 2009 Alaska fishing season. Here at Drifting on the Fly we are settled into our cabin and are enjoying the winter season.  Dec. 21st is a day to mention, we start gaining a little sunlight each day now until June.  It will not make much of a difference for a month or so but it is nice to think about.

Tight lines,
