Default Skunked yesterday and leaders

Got out a bit early from work yesterday, so I decided to hit a local stocked trout stream.

It was no secret, as I had some remote hope of. There were 15 cars there when I got there, but there was plenty of room to fish. It was stocked by VA DNR on Thursday morning. It was picked over and swept clean pretty quick.

I managed to get a strike once, but he spit the hook.

The upside was that I got to cast my 2wt that I got for Christmas. The St. Croix Legend Ultra casted nicely, although I did fight a 4-5 mph breeze pushing from upstream. Man, I need to get some more leaders before my big spring trip.

The cheapest leaders I have found (mono, tapered leaders) were $2.75 each. Anyone know of a better deal?
