Re: Make Your Own Leader
Hi to all,
"Good deal! Mine cost me over $100, but I got a bunch of different Frog Hair tippet with it for free...LOL"
I like your thinking. When I use to buy insurance for my plane I always thought that the first flight cost me $2000 and it was free the rest of the year.
How does your tool work?
You did get a good deal but I would be concerned about how old the mono is and how it was stored. I bought some leaders on the Norfork in Arkansas and I couldn't tie a knot in it without it breaking. It was covered in dust and I think it was older than the hills.
I tried the blood knot tool you have but did not like it. I found that I could tie them just as fast by hand, or at least almost as fast.
I am sitting here this morning dead heading on a wireless system from the house next door. I will be leaving today and won't have access to the net for a couple of weeks. You guys and gals wll just have to struggle along with out me.
