Harvey Style Leaders

$4.00
Free Shipping!

George Harvey is an American Icon and is often referred to as the "Dean of American Fly Fishing". His innovative approach to fishing led him to design his own leaders for a style he called slack line casting. Not content to rest on his laurels he kept reinventing his leader designs throughout his lifetime.

In this Series we have included three of his leader formulas representing their evolution over time.

These are the first leaders in what we call our "Preserving the Past" Series. We will be recreating other leader formulas from various fly fishing luminaries over time.

All leaders are hand tied by Chris Fave to our specifications.

Complete specs for all leaders are listed below.

A portion of each sale will be donated to the "Joe Humphrey Angling Fund" at Penn State to help aspiring anglers achieve their dreams.


All leaders will ship First Class USPS.
