Scientific Anglers – Sonar Leaders and Sonar Booby Tip

TFF reviews Scientific Anglers – Sonar Leaders and Sonar Booby Tip.

New from Scientific Anglers are a range of leaders and tips to connect to the end of your fly line to help get your flies into the different fish catching zones. The Sonar Leaders are 10ft in length and come in five different densities; floating, hover, intermediate, sink 3 and sink 5. They are to be used in the main with your floating line to create a range of sink-tips without the need to swap fly lines. Each tip weighs 50 grains, has a welded loop at the butt end and is labelled to help you identify them. I used a nail knot to attach my leader and found them easy to cast when attached to the line.

The Booby Tip is a shorter 5ft floating tip designed to be used on sinking lines to keep your flies and leader suspended off the bottom. This tip has welded loops at both ends and is ideal for fishing a Booby or any other buoyant pattern. Available from FlyFish Europe stockists.
