Re: How do you straighten leaders and tippets?
You know I used the rubber faced leather gizmo sold as a leader straightener for many years when I started fly fishing. Then one day I read that it weaken the leader due to the heat it created. I bet it didn't make much difference to all those fish I caught with my weaken leader. I stopped using the leader straightener but I can't say it made one bit of difference. I now use my hands pulling the tippet or leader against my bent knee. No friction, I just pull against my knee.
