Re: What type of leader do you use?
I have been building my one leaders for years. I use mostly furled leaders made out of various materials.
My Reasons, Furled leaders LAST…. They provide amazing energy transfer.
Dry Fly Fishing, Leaders made from Uni-Thread are my go to leader, in my opinion, they are un-matched by any other material for the way they present a dry.
Small Nymph Fishing: I use a 50” Thread Hi-Vis Leader. The upper Portion (18” long) of leader is brightly colored and treated to float. The lower portion sinks fast (un-treated) These work great as a strike indicator with small nymphs.
Large/Heavy Nymph Fishing, I use furled Fluorocarbon Leaders.
If you are looking to build your own Furled leaders and you have questions, PM me and I will do what I can to help you out.
