Toothy Crit­ter leader

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice Squad -

Q When fly-fish­ing for pike, do I just at­tach my RIO Toothy Crit­ter leader to the fly line, or should I have a length of leader in be­tween? Gary Mor­gan

ROB ED­MUNDS REPLIES: Your Toothy Crit­ter leader is essen­tially a bite-proof ta­pered leader with a link at one end for chang­ing flies. You don't need to add any ad­di­tional leader ma­te­rial and you sim­ply con­nect it di­rectly to the end of your fly-line. I be­lieve the lead­ers are about eight-foot in length which is plenty long enough for pike and al­lows large flies to be turned over rel­a­tively eas­ily.
