Let's face it, you can catch more trout nymphing. Why? Because trout can be lazy, not wanting to rise to the surface to take a dry fly. To get you nymphs deeper, a longer 9' leader is the way to go. Add to this, there's more structure near the bottom of a trout stream in the form of sharp rocks, ledges and other snags like sticks and logs. Having a heavier tapered leader will resist scrapes and scratches from the elements. If you want to catch more trout, this is the leader to do it.
