Default Scientific Anglers Express Sinking Fly Fishing Line Leaders - Type VI

Good evening,

Anyone ever used a sinking line leader before? I'm on a tight budget, therefor I don't have an extra spool or sinking line. Would it be somewhat effective to tie on a sinking leader for limited use on rivers and streams ?

There are a few threads here in the fly line stream dealing with these. It can be a great way to turn a floating line into a sinking line without being forced to buy a sinking line and possible a second reel or spool. The cons are they don't cast as well. You can get some hinging. SA, Rio and Airflo all sell different versions of the sinking leaders. I can't tell you which is best. I can say I bought a short and long sinking leader to try on my 5wt.
