Default Re: Furled Leaders for Spey

Aren't you defeating the purpose of the sink tip by adding a furled leader?

The goal of using a sink tip is to get the fly to depth. By adding more leader, the fly will most likely ride higher than the tip of the line.

The norm is to have a foot long butt section followed with three to four feet of tippet material.
