The article presents information on new features added to leaders used for toothy pike and muskie fishing. The newer titanium-alloy leaders have overcome the problem of kinking that was common with steel wire leaders. Heavy fluorocarbon leaders are also becoming popular as they can hold up for many seasons before needing to be replaced. Their near-invisibility in water is an additional advantage.
