Default Re: Scientific Anglers L2L

The L2L has been replaced by its product improved cousin, the Reconnect Tapered Leader System. Basically the difference between the two is simple: as the name implies, the latest version can be removed and used over again.

I’ve fished the L2L in its original form for well over a year and have never had a problem; in fact, if you find them at a discount, I suggest you load up. SA is well known for the high quality of their leader material. I like the think of the L2L as a 9-foot leader that’s made up with 7-feet of butt and mid-section with the remaining 2-feet comprising the tippet. The way I tie, that’s about 4 to 5 flies; at that point, I tie on a new piece of tippet material and continue to fish. I’m not very finicky whether the tippet material is made by whomever or simply just a piece of good old Stren – in the right diameter, of course…

The L2L works equally well wet or dry.
