Wind On Leaders

In fishing terms, a wind on leader is a section of heavier line which provides additional shock absorption and abrasion protection on the end of your mainline and will be used by the deckhand to “take a wrap” when the fish is in position for a tag or gaff shot.

Generally, a wind on leader is connected “loop to loop” to your mainline with a plait or bimini twist. On the other end, a ball bearing snap swivel is crimped on to the wind on leader and then all you have to do is clip your lure on.

Richter Lures provides you with top quality hand made wind on leaders, ranging from 3 to 8 metres in length and with breaking strains of between 100 and 500lb.
