Rio Spey VersiLeader
Ratings & Reviews
Instant - and variable - sink tip.
by Dale Martens
I have these in the 10 foot length and a variety of sink rates. They are usually on the end of an Ambush line with either a 4 or 7 weight switch rod. This combination is very versatile for me; I can spey cast it or overhand cast it. Sometimes I might use the same line leader combo with a regular 7 weight rod. (4 weight switch = 6 weight Ambush. 7 weight switch = 9 weight Ambush. 7 weight regular rod = 7 weight Ambush.) The VersaLeaders that get tied on the most are probably the intermediate one and the one with the fastest sink rate.
These are awesome! Come in 5 different sink rates; get a faster one than you think you'll need. I mostly use the 7ips. Gets it down fast where the fish are feeding. Don't have to change lines anymore.
