Leader set ups.. what do you use?

Post  Pikeyjoe on Thu Jan 12, 2017 4:45 pm

Hi, Just wondering whether anyone has tried using Polyleaders for pike on the fly? My current set up is a Rio Outbound line with about 6ft of 25lb Amnesia attached to some Surflon knotable wire with an Allbright knot then small snap clip to attach fly. I have been having problems getting my flies down enough and have been experimenting with adding small split shot to the front of the fly which has been working but i can't help but feel it effects the fly action. I have just ordered an Airflo pike/bass Polyleader in fast sink and see how it goes. interested in your setups and what you have found works and what doesn't.

Not tryed polyleaders, I tied some flys with the hook faceing up when I added some shot so I could bump it along the bottom, but for me you cannot beat a hanging fly Laughing , let us know how you get on...

I found the polly leader wasn't really man enough to sink a budgie so didn't make much difference. I still ended up adding shot. I like using a small link though to attach the fly rather than tying it on with knotable wire. If anything it actually gives the fly better movement. An usd fly is a good idea especially if bumping the bottom so might give that a try thanks.

It was worth a try would have been much cheeper then buying new sinking lines..
