The Umpqua Tarpon Leader with pink fluorocarbon shock tippet is ultra-deceptive. As far as the tarpon is concerned, the abrasion-resistant disappearing pink tippet is non-existent. The knotless nylon leader tapers from a heavy butt section down to 16 lb. class tippet with 60 lb. shock or 20 lb. class tippet with 80 lb. shock. This improves energy transfer, fly turnover, and gear protection.
