American Fishing Wire's New Bleeding Leader Wire

Red is becoming the color of choice for terminal tackle among many fishermen these days. American Fishing Wire enhances that trend with its new Bleeding Leader Wire.

Red is becoming the color of choice for terminal tackle among many fishermen these days. American Fishing Wire enhances that trend with its new Bleeding Leader Wire. The red nylon coating on the 1 by 7 stainless-steel SURFLON wire mimics the color of blood in shallow water. The color changes as the wire descends because red is the first color of the light spectrum to diminish. The wire comes in 30-, 300- and 1,000-foot spools of 20- to 90-pound test, costing anywhere from $2.99 to $90.39. Or buy premade leaders with swivels attached in 20- to 60-pound varieties, 12 to 18 inches long and three to a pack for $1.99 to $3.49. Those who prefer to buy complete hardware can purchase leaders (two to a pack) with a swivel at one end and a snelled Eagle Claw hook at the other. Sizes range from 30-pound-test leader with a 3/0 hook to 60-pound with a 6/0. Cost is $1.99. Call 800-824-9473 or visit www.americanfishingwire.com.
