Title: Leader for fly fishing

Abstract: A leader for fly fishing which has a high knot strength and a high tensile tenacity, is free from the formation of a shape-unstable portion (constriction) having a smaller diameter than an average thread diameter of the tippet section and the occurrence of melt fracture at a connecting portion between the tapered section and the tippet section, and shows an excellent natural drift property, can be produced by using a vinylidene fluoride-based resin having an inherent viscosity of 1.0 to 1.7 dl/g.
