Default Re: Furled Leaders

Being somewhat on the lazy side, I put the wraps on the one side, go around the end peg, and reverse the wrapping sequence up the other side back to the end hook. Use an end hook for each leg. Then for the twisting cycle, unhook one of the hook ends, walk around to straighten the wraps out, attach the cordless drill and wind clockwise until you've reduced the overall length by 10 percent. Then carefully attach the mid point to hold it, take the remaining half and walk it back to the hook end. Transfer both end loops to the same hook. Take the drill and attach the mid point of the twisted leader. Reverse the drill and turn counterclockwise until the leader is completely 'furled' and relaxed. Now tie a Shorb knotless loop in each end and you're ready to fish.
