The Orvis Tactical Nymph Leader is an innovative 13′, 2X multicolor knotless leader that uses color to allow the angler to see and follow the leader when nymphing with European-style techniques. 12″ of bright orange butt section, with a perfection loop for easy connection to fly line, changes to an opaque white. The last 2′ of the leader is a tri-color 8″ of orange, 8″of chartreuse, and 8″ of white. The bottom is finished with a 2mm tippet ring which allows easy addition of desired tippet. The leader is knotless save the perfection loop at the top and the tippet ring at the bottom. 8 ¾ lb. breaking strength. Imported.

Shop Staff Notes:  The Orvis Tactical Nymph Leader is an easy to use leader system for European-style nymphing techniques (Czech Nymphing, Polish Nymphing, etc.).  Just add Tippet off the attached 2mm Tippet Ring to the length you need for the specific depth or technique you are using.  We almost always use Fluorocarbon Tippet for this because of it’s stealth, its slight negative buoyancy and abrasion resistance. Most common size Fluoro Tippet to add off the Ring is 4X and 5X but using 3X for bigger bugs (even streamers!) or broken water or 6X for smaller bugs and deep, slower water is also common.
