Scientific Anglers Absolute Leaders

Fly fishers are generally pretty good about picking up after themselves. When I see litter along the stream, it’s often in the form of Styrofoam bait containers, balls of monofilament, or cigarette butts. And walking on isolated beaches it’s water bottles, flip-flops, and other debris. I rarely see leader packages. But when Scientific Anglers came out with an entire new product line of Absolute tapered leaders, someone still had the foresight to responsibly create all the paper-based packaging. The product envelope—including the biodegradable clear cellophane window—is all recyclable. Yes, the leaders are excellent. There are extruded nylon and fluorocarbon leaders for general-purpose trout, long and delicate presentations, streamers, nymphing, stillwater trout, bass, and also for flats species like bonefish and permit. Scientific Anglers is coming out with 15 new leader products this year, and while from a personal perspective, one leader package here and there is a little innocuous in terms of the global pollution, it’s nice to see a company that cares enough to make the packaging of an entire product category fall in line with passionate consumers who care about our rivers and streams. $7 | scientificanglers.com
