A Guide To Leads

Knowing what each different lead shape does will aid your angling. Here's a quick guide to five of the most common types...

 

There are so many other shapes and designs, but these are by far the most common.

Pear leads
The standard pear lead is one of the most versatile leads going. The shape makes it a good all round lead for a multitude of different situations. The pear comes into its own when fishing on softer lakebeds such as silt and bottom debris because it is able to grip very well.

Square Pear leads
The square pear is one of the most compact lead patterns on the market. Again, similar to the pear but this time it has four flat sides so it grips lakebed surfaces well. This is one of the best leads for feeling a drop and also for hooking potential because the lead is concentrated into a smaller surface area.

Flat Pear Inline leads
The standard pear lead is one of the most versatile leads going. The shape makes it a good all round lead for a multitude of different situations. The pear comes into its own when fishing on softer lakebeds such as silt and bottom debris because it is able to grip very well.

Distance Leads
The distance lead has been created for the angler who wants to present a bait at range. The aerodynamic shape means it flies through the air a lot easier with less drag for increased distance. This shape of lead is available in both a swivel pendant and also an in-line style. A good all-rounder.
