Cutthroat Short Rod Leader with Tippet Ring - 50in. This Leader was developed after a weeklong trip fishing a 3 wt rod on a small brush covered creek. Cutthroat realized that having a shorter leader for the 3 or 4 wt rods would be very beneficial. These short Rod Dry Fly Leaders offer the same dry fly fishing qualities of the longer leaders, but in a shorter version. These leaders have become a favourite among Bamboo enthusiasts. If you fish bamboo or a rod beneath 7'-6" in length, you should give one of these leaders a try.

Questions and Answers
Q: Can I tie Thread Furled Leader to the Fly Line?
A: Yes, use a Three wrap nail knot, cinch knot tight and cut off the loop
Q: What if I do not like the loop or ring connector?
A: We have many customers that tie tippet directly to the leader using a double surgeon's knot. I often tie 4X tipper to the leader, then step down to 5x.
Q: What paste floatant is best?
A: I often prepare my fishing gear the night before I leave. At this time, I will apply a liberal amount of Otter Butter Floatant to my Dry Fly Leader. Most often, this one application is all that is needed. If the leader does sink, I use the Leader Floatant by Loon to put on a wet leader. Otter butter works better on a dry leader, Leader Floatant works better on a leader that has been already saturated.
