Loop Tackle. I've used the 15 and 17' leaders and love them. Not sure what Poppy carries but everything else I've been able to find were 12' maximum.

I just checked. Loop is out of the 15' but has the 17'. Same price $7.50cad

RIO makes some, I think. I use their 12' leaders and add a couple feet of tippet.

Being Rio stopped making 15ft Steelhead / Salmo leaders some time back, I started using Rio Saltwater 50lb 0.027" tippet & adding 3' to the butt of the 12' leader. It can be loop 2 loop or knotted to gain the extra length.

These are the ones I mentioned. I usually get some 15' as well but they seem to be out. These can easily be cut back if needed.

I tied my own now, but WW Doak tied some nice long salmon leaders that I used and would still use (if I did not tie my own)
Jerry gave me one of his first 15 footers (he laughed when he said, "don't tell anybody I gave you one...no one will believe you."), I copied it and it has been my go-to ever since. Maxima chameleon.

Where in Canada can you order these from?

I normally use Airflo Copolymer 15' 0X leaders and add tippet, but none of my usual sources have any in stock this year, and I've got a salmon trip looming in a month.

Loop Tackle. Just make sure your in the Canadian site. They ship from Quebec. Takes 4-5 days.
