Metallic leaders are often necessary to avoid cutoffs from Spanish and king mackerel, bluefish, wahoo, barracuda and sharks.
Wire prep: Regardless of the type of metallic leader material you choose to employ, pre-rigging keeps you in the game when the bite is on.
Titanium: Clinch knots can be used to attach titanium leaders to hooks.
Sevenstrand: Virtually toothproof, Sevenstrand wire requires sleeves and crimps.
Nylon-Coated Sevenstrand: Figure-eight knots work well with nylon-coated Sevenstrand wire.
Single-Strand: A carefully tied haywire twist works best when using single-strand wire.
