Default Re: First time using a furled leader and have a question

There are several ways of doing this but this is what I prefer:

If you have it, nail know a piece of 20lb Amnesia (usually red) to end of the fly line. Make a loop on the other end of the Amnesia so the entire piece is about 3-4" long when finished. I use a Perfection Loop as it's easy to tie and it stays in-line with the rest of the line.

If you don't have Amnesia, you could use some 15 or 20lb Mono. I like Amnesia because it can act as a natural strike indicator.
