Choose The Proper Fishing Leader Material

Selecting the right fishing leader material for your needs is dependent on the species of fish that you're aiming for. Fish like mackerel, pike and, of course, sharks can make quick work of lightweight leaders, so be sure to select a steel or wire leader if you'd like to land an aggressive fish species that can chew through softer materials. On the other hand, monofilament and fluorocarbon tend to be less visible to fish while underwater, making them a great choice for sharp-eyed fish or in clear or shallow waters. Be sure to browse our selection of fishing line to find gear that'll help make your next fishing expedition more successful.
