Fluorocarbon leaders offer many advantages. Highly resistant to abrasion, these tough leaders can stand up to toothy and scaly fish as well as oyster beds, pilings and structure that can weaken line. Fluorocarbon leaders are also practically invisible, making them a great choice for fooling wary fish, especially if you are fishing with easy-to-see line such as braid. In addition, fluorocarbon leaders have very little stretch. That makes it easier to set the hook when a fish strikes.
At TackleDirect, we carry a variety of freshwater and saltwater fluorocarbon leaders and tippets that can add to your success. Our fluorocarbon leader material and tippets are made by premium manufacturers such as Momoi, Yo-Zuri and Sea-Guar.
