shark leaders

Got an invite to go sharkin' on the fly next week- anybody know where one can get pre-tied leaders with the wire trace attached. I need heavier than the 50lbs that I have found so far. Thanks

Hey Titleguy,

I think you'll have some trouble finding those.. I'd check with our sponsor Andrew at Tightlines Fly fishing. He might be able to make some up if he doesn't have some made up already. I'd call around soon or your'e time to get some will be up.

Good luck...

Greg.

We use 80 lb single strand for blacktips down here. Connect yoru fly with a haywire twist and use a stainless steel swivel (about 100 lb test) to connect to the 30 lb leader. I found that a lenght of straight 30 was the best leader, no muss no fuss. Here is the video of how we do it around here:
