Leaders


Varivas Yamame Tapered Leaders

Keiichero Iwai, Japan's master of Yamame Trout fishing, developed these leaders with VARIVAS® as the ideal leaders for pursuing these fish in mountain steams with light tackle. It is easy enough to find lightweight rods and reels that can deliver on delicate presentation however, there was always a difficulty to find the hooks to tie tiny flies, tippet to connect them and leaders long enough and fine enough to present a tiny midge to the easily spooked Yamame. With this background, VARIVAS® brought together know-how and expertise to create what is probably the world's most delicate dry fly presentation system.

Varivas Flat-butt Yamame Leader

Flat-Butt Leaders are the latest innovation in tapered leaders - with the sole aim of providing the fly-fisher with delicate presentation and ideal turn-over.

Available in 4X 5X 6X and 7X, they are ideal for use with the dry flies used on our chalk streams. With 55% butt and a gradual taper over 28% with a relatively short point of 17%.

These unique leaders have a flat butt for additional suppleness and ease of knotting - the yellow-coloured butt and taper make these leaders highly visible to the fly-fisher while maintaining stealth with a clear point section. Produced from pure nylon, they are supple from butt to point and have no memory, making them ideal for delicate presentation.

Varivas Tapered Leaders

Varivas Tapered Leaders

Varivas Tapered Leaders are the ultimate in knotless leaders for the discerning fly-fisher. They provide the ideal solution to specialist fly fishing situations. Some manufacturers produce tapered leaders as 15 foot stock then cut them into 6 foot, 7.5 foot, 9 foot or 12 foot lengths. Varivas however, takes a different approach by designing each different leader for its own specific application ... giving the fly-fisher the optimal taper profile to best suit the situation, produced with its taper ratios always in proportion to leader length. ALL VARIVAS TAPERED LEADERS are "Resin Coated" and "Non-Stress Coated" to insure low memory, abrasion and water resistance, and prolonged life for both fresh and salt water applications.
