Default Re: Eyesight/Low Light Frustration

I love the furled leaders with tippet ring. Joni makes some wonderful ones.

The other thing you may want to 'Look into' are yellow (low light) lens. They're called 'Shooter's Lens' for a very good reason. Folks here advertise the furled leaders, but "Joni/aka Furl-Girl" does a hell of a great job on these. Her's are 'tight as a tick' and I even use them (low water) on my light spey rods.

Indeed she does. I've used several 'brands,' including stuff out of the UK, but her's have remain the goal that all are judged against. No one's beat her work yet.

I agree. Since I've bought from her, she is the one I go to for more furled leaders. Top notch work. Unsurpassed.

Thumbs up Re: Eyesight/Low Light Frustration

Had to chuckle, the e-mail notification, just before the one for this thread, was telling me I had a PM off the SpeyPages Web board. Guy wanted Joni's contact info. Sent him the link to her web site.
