Default Big Steelies make us all smile

I just received this image from one of our customers. I had to share it as the colors are great. I wish it was me holding steel for the camera, but knowing it was landed with one of leaders comes in a strong second.

Please feel free to add pics of yourself, a fish and a big "SMILE"

Hi Mike,

I was looking forward to testing out the leaders this spring but now I expect a fish like that to go with just kidding; I figure I'll be able to find something but probably not like that one, wow.

Hello All,

It was just brought to my attention that not all forum members are aware of the 15% savings to forum members. If you use the coupon code nafff at checkout, it will save 15%. A $20.00 minimum purchase is required. If you recently made a purchase and did not get the 15%, contact me via email and we will work something out.

Thank you much.

For you who are not aware, this type of leader works a treat off the business of a 2hander fly line. You do want them with 'tippet rings' so you can easily install some regular leader for the balance.

That's a beautiful fish.

Mike, I'll be heading to Smithers, BC this October for a couple of weeks of steelhead fishing. I followed the threads regarding furled leaders on this forum with interest and decided I'd like to give them a try--this pic and the endorsements of other members convinced me (Fred, I appreciated your comment re: using them with a two-handed rod). I'll be contacting you sometime later this summer and picking up some of your leaders for that steelhead trip.

Scott

Scott, get both the 'regular' and sinking types. "Horses for Courses" as the Brit's would say. FL's are damned near indistructable. (Spelling sucks tonight.)

'They make a lot of 'noise' coming off the water?' With river fishing, total fluff nonsense as in no more than the rest of the line.
