The Bass Boss Leader is 6 feet long, and is ideal for throwing wind resistant bass bugs a floating line. The leader is intentionally shorter as Bass are not leader shy, and the shorter leader gives better control over the fly. The butt section consists of extra stiff Rio Saltwater Mono & Maxima Chameleon butt section that is tapered to 15# Rio Bass tippet for smooth energy transfer on the cast. Just like our Trout Streamer leader the Bass Boss terminal end of the leader includes a micro-swivel that can removed if you prefer to tie the fly directly to leader.
The purpose of the micro-swivel is two fold. First, you simply need to attach your desired tippet to the swivel, thereby making this leader nearly infinite with regard to its durability. If you break off your tippet, it should be below the swivel so simply tie on a new piece and your leader will still be in tact. You won't get that from a brand name pre-packaged leader. The second reason is the swivel keeps your line from twisting when throwing wind resident flies. This is critical for presentation, and also improves the durability of the leader.
