Pike/Musky Leaders in The Fly Tying Bench Posted February 2, 2015 · Report reply Maxima Chameleon mono of various lengths, 40# ------->30#------>15#--------->then a 17# wire tippet to a re-worked Duo-Lock snap (a needle nose pliers is required to change flies at the snap). Loop-to-loop from fly line to 40#, then blood knots & Zap-A-Gap on other mono knots, then an Albright knot at the mono to wire tippet. The 15# mono to 17# tippet acts as a fuse in the event of an unreachable snag. Loses a fly, but saves a $95 fly line. The Maxima mono is a very good monofilament line! Good knot strength, excellent abrasion resistance.
