Our custom leaders will take your fly casting & presentation to the
next level, being designed for specific applications
EURO MAX MODULAR LEADERS
Our Euro Max modular tightline nymphing fly leaders are proudly hand-tied and tested for strength and quality in Utah, USA. We use stiff Maxima Chameleon butt section leader material and softer mid-section (Suffix and Amnesia) high-visibility materials in the transition and sighter sections to allow for better turnover, presentation, and visibility for maximized strike detection. Each leader includes a tippet ring to allow for easy changing tippet and not sacrificing leader length
CAST MAX TARGET STANDARD COMPOUND LEADERS (Dry, Nymph/Wet & Streamers)
We design and tie our Cast Max Target standard tapered leaders for the best turnover and presentation by using Maxima Chameleon in the butt sections and softer Maxima Green line in the finer tapering sections and then high-end finishing tippet material. Delicate and stealthy presentation are key in every leader we design and produce. Each leader includes a tippet ring to allow for easy changing of tippet and not sacrificing leader length.
We design and build modular/compound fly fishing leaders for both traditional fly casting for dry, nymph, wet, and streamer applications, and we also have released our latest EuroMax Sighter+ Standard, Thin, and Micro Thin leaders for popular euro-nymphing styles. If you have a custom need with specific tapers that our stock products won't cover, contact us and we will build your leader to order. In addition to carefully chosen materials, our products are made with knowledge from years of fishing experience in the Utah mountains and rivers and throughout the western US. We take pride in our products and believe in quality and loyalty to our customers.

Your leader is the business end of the presentation you make to fish. It is critical that it is designed and tied to the specific application you are using it for to ensure the most efficient casting, turnover, accuracy, and presentation. Most fly anglers, including beginners and those who have never experienced superior custom leaders, will use commercial tapered leaders because they are abundant and because of the false notion that they can optimally be used for every type of fly fishing. Yes, those can be used for multiple fishing situations, but they are far from optimal and will not give you the best performance.
Our EuroMax Sighter+ (tight line) leaders are designed to give you maximum strike detection with minimal drag, high sighter visibility in varying light conditions, ease in casting, delicate presentation through the drift, and superior fighting strength.
Our CastMax Target leaders are designed individually for dry, streamer, and nymph/wet applications, depending on your need. Our 7 section dry fly leaders are set apart by their 'slack' casting design. When designed, tied and cast properly, they will land with a series of 'S' curves in the lower section of leader and tippet, providing for a more natural drag-free drift. Trying to create these curves yourself with typical commercial leaders after the cast will typically ruin your presentation and cause refusals. Our nymph/wet & streamer leaders have the perfect tapers to allow for distance casting, excellent turnover, and delicate presentations
Our optional proprietary SmoothKnot resin technology on our CastMax leader product lines reduces the annoying 'knot catching' in rod guides when you reel the leader in past the fly line. Additionally, SmoothKnot helps shed weeds and moss over knots so you spend more time fishing and less time unfouling your leader. Add this for only an extra $1
