Re: Furled Leaders
Pros- they have effectively zero memory and a significantly longer life than mono leaders, their casting characteristics lend to more delicate presentations, you can tie on a slightly longer tippet than you can to tie to a mono tapered leader
Cons- they are not clear (certainly not near-invisible) like mono, they sink more slowly (though if you're fishing dry flies with them, it's not an issue), they are attached to leader and tippet with loop-to-loop connection which doesn't slide through the guides as easily as a nail knot, more expensive than mono leaders
The other flies, n., pl.
1. dry flies, nymphs, emergers, terrestrials, streamers, etc.
2. What I use when a black #10 woolly bugger isn't catching.
