    Umpqua Power Taper Leader - 2 Pack
    “meh...” - I was'nt too impressed with these. Good price, but found the leaders on the stiff side with a lot of memory. Had some difficulty placing smaller flies; worked ok with the larger bugs and streamers.

    “Terrific pattern.” - Really effective streamer. Well made too! Get them in all colors; but I've had the best luck with rust. Good for trout and warmwater species too.
