Re: Embarrassing confession
Great response, Silver.
As far as being on the water, furled leaders have improved my casting accuracy, and turn dry flies over for a much better presentation. I'm not the world's most technical caster, and furled leaders really help. They also have showed an improved lifespan versus tapered leaders. For me, well worth the money.
You can always tell a fly fisherman. You just can't tell him much.
