Default Re: question about furled leaders

I guess maybe it depends on the leader (construction and material). I've never purposely added any treatment to my leaders and have never had a problem. I do occasionally use my leader as a napkin, if I've applied a drop of fly floatant to my fly, and end up with slippery finger tips, I'll run them over my leader. My primary goal is to clean off my fingers, there isn't enough floatant remnant to have any significant effect on the leader.

So do you guys treat your tippet as well?
