Biologist Selected. Fish Approved.
Give the gift of success on the fly to your family and fishing buddies with an Ascent Fly Fishing Gift Certificate.
After years of flexing our brains and studying trout and their behavior, the team at Ascent Fly Fishing is proud to bring you GHOST monofilament tapered leaders (with loops).
What makes our tapered leaders stand out from the pack?
- Superb knot strength and abrasion resistance
- Ultra sensitive to strikes
- Minimal stretch
- Minimal loop memory
- Bombproof loops for easy attachment to your fly line
Available in both 7.5' and 9' lengths
If you prefer standard butt leaders over the loop, one quick snip with your nippers will make it so!
Serious anglers need serious tools, not overpriced ones.

These leaders are excellent. I fish a lot, and there is a certain name brand I won't put here that makes awful leaders, and a couple others that make good ones. These are just as good as the best leaders from any name brand I have used, highly recommend.

Why spend more $$ on big name brands when you can get a superior product from a great, locally owned family business!? It's a no brainer for me. I've been using products from Ascent for a few years now and I have zero complaints! None.
Best leader available

I have finished with every leader brand you can think of. This leader ties for the best, and is far superior to a particular brand that is common and I will not mention here.
No reason to spend extra money, these will do the job!
The Only One I will Use!

I love the Ascent Ghost tapered leaders! They are sturdy and flexible, reasonably priced, and do everything I want them to do. I have tried others, but they are all inferior. These are the only leaders I will use.
Great Leaders at a Great Price

These leaders perform really well and they don't cost an arm and a leg. Plus, you're supporting local business!

It catches fish, what more do you need? No reason to pay more and supports a local business. These are the only leaders I buy anymore.
