Re: Furled leaders - pros & cons. any1 use them?
Like fishnskiguy I make my own furled leaders. I sell some & use them exclusively . I've used them in both the salt & fresh water for trout, salmon, bass, blues etc. I make them out of various materials also for different needs.
I do like mono leaders. I make them with Cortland Camo extra soft 2# test for trout fishing with my bamboo rods & they not only turn over well but also function we'll as a shock leader. I settled on a leader of 66" long for trout & I can add another 5ft or so of tippet if I want. I usually, but not always put a 3mm tippet ring on them but I find it unnessary as a loop on the tippet to the shorb loop on the leader works well. Good luck with your leaders
