Re: Tampa Tarpon
I'd can the furled leader idea. It's hard enough to stick a tarpon with straight 60lb from the fly to the fly line. You add 4 or 6 or however rmany feet of twists in there and it's going to be like a slinky on a tarpon.
It will also be harder to cast in the wind. Tarpon flies are easy to throw because they are small with relatively heavy hooks. They will straighten out with their own momentum.
I'd just go with a standard rig as described very well by Peregrines.
