Varivas Fluorocarbon Tapered Nymphing Leader

9 ft 3x with 2mm Tippet ring included (see below for set up instructions)

Varivas engineering has developed a premium, nearly invisible product for discerning fishermen. Taper profile is for delicate presentations, which is ideal for fishing the small midge patterns needed on the San Juan.

Coated with “non-stress” UV light shield. “Resin” coating reduces water absorption. Ultra-flexible. Superior knot strength and abraision resistance.

Rigging: why 3x instead of 5x or 6x?

With a typical 5x or 6x leader needed to fish tiny midge patterns, after changing flies multiple times it is necessary to add tippet with a surgeons knot - sooner or later you need a new leader. Instead we use a 9 ft 3x leader, and tie the end to a 2mm micro tippet ring. Then we add 12" of 5x tippet to the first fly, then another 12" of 5x or 6x to the 2nd fly. As your tippet shortens after changing flies it is easy to add tippet to the ring, and your main leader will never shorten (lots of $$ Savings). 

A complimentary tippet ring is included for you to try this set up.
