Default Re: Knotless Leaders

I do, almost all the time. If I'm fishing an area where there's basically no chance of the leader running through vegetation, I'll use some that I've tied up, but I usually go with the knotless ones.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

Default Re: Knotless Leaders

In the salt, most often a knotted leader; in fresh water, it's a toss up between a knotless leader and a furled leader.

Let me quickly add that the more I fish the furled leaders I evaluated, the more I like them.
