I'm not really sure where this post should be, but this is the closest that I could find to leaders and tippet.
Anyway, I have heard from a lot of you and seen a few posts on other threads about leaders about how great furled leaders are. The thing that i was wondering was 1) What IS a furled leader?
2) What is it made of?
3) Can I make it myself? If so, what do I need to make them?
4) Do you add tippet onto the end of a furled leader just as if it were any other leader?
5) How are these leaders categorized? (I know the x number system for regular tapered leaders and such, is there a different one for furled leaders?)
6) Finally, What are some advantages to having a furled leader over a tapered leader? Some disadvantages?
I've just been hearing about how good these leaders are, I was just wondering how much better they really were. I saw this place that I can get some of these leaders in their magazine I got yesterday, but I didn't know if it was worth the price and all that good stuff. Here is a link
to the shop that I can get these leaders, the place is actually one of the closest fly shops to my house (only being a hour and a half away! haha).
As always, any help is appreciated greatly!!!
