Default Re: The End of The Line; Discussions on Furlled & Knotted Leaders.

I decided to "tie one on" last night. I had bought the Umpqua Leader kit with some Xmas loot, thinking that it would be an easy way to get what I needed to build my leaders. Fail......

I plugged into the LeaderCalc that I wanted a 12' 5x leader, and it showed me that I needed XYZ lengths of 05x, 03x, 01x,..... BUT my nifty kit did not include the 03x and the 01x. So I rigged it with 04x and 02x, respectively.

Will this stiffer leader butt section prove too problematic in turning over the fly? I play on trying it out with a 5wt, if it makes a difference.
