Umpqua Announces New Leader & Tippet!



Umpqua announced today that all of its leaders
and tippet materials shipping in the recently
redesigned packaging system are new and 
vastly improved products. Over the past year
and a half, Umpqua has been integrating the
new and improved product into the previous
generation of packaging. Umpqua’s leader and
tippet manufacturing partner has consistently
invested in the most modern, cutting-edge
equipment that allows for more accurate tolerances
during the extrusion process, providing even
greater consistency and reliability in the materials
and designs.

The announcement of the improved
leader and tippet product lines 
coincides with Umpqua’s launch 
of an entirely redesigned packaging 
system. The new leader packaging 
reinforces Umpqua’s 40 plus year 
approach to enhance the angler’s experience and 
performance. Containing the industry’s most reliable 
and consistent leaders, the packaging displays the 
distinguishing, product specific information (type of 
leader, length, strength, etc.) at the top of each 
package, allowing anglers to sort through multiple 
leaders and select the desired leader without having
to remove them from the vest/pack pocket.
