Welcome to the Orvis and Rio Leader and Tippet store at Little River Outfitters. Here you will find a selection of our best selling brands of leaders and tippet. Orvis and Rio offer a vast selection of sizes to choose from including monofilament and fluorocarbon. Choose monofilament for most bass and trout fishing conditions. Mono, floats closer to the surface than fluorocarbon. It costs less money too.
Fluorocarbon has two specific advantages over mono. First, it is harder for the fish to see. That helps when you are fishing very clear water for spooky trout. More importantly, fluorocarbon offers better abrasion resistance. Fluorocarbon is a harder material. The disadvantage to fluorocarbon is the fact that it sinks faster.
We also sell spools of heavy mono and fluorocarbon for those who like to make their own tapered leaders for freshwater or saltwater big game use. And, we sell IGFA Approved leaders and tippet by Orvis. This can be helpful if you are seeking a world record. This material is identified by pound test.
Both Orvis and Rio have made great strides over the years, improving the strength of their leader and tippet material.
