I myself am not sure on knotless... If you are buying and IGFA certified leader I thing it would have to be a minimim lenght.. I don't have my handbook in front of me but I think 12 inches.. I will check.. so I would think it would be longer in the package to allow for chganging of flys and cut offs... For salt water.. all I do is have a spool of flourocabon and tye the mono on a short 30 or 40 pound butt loop (about 12 inches more or less) then 6 feet of leader or total tippet ... so as I change flys or have any break offs I can work it down to ..say 4 feet. If on the flats I will tye it longer.
