Default Re: Spey Leaders by Cutthroat Leader Co.

I have recently begun using Cutthroat furled leaders. It worked very well for dry line steelhead fishing on the Deschutes River in Central Oregon. I attached a 10ft spey leader to a scandi head with a built in loop to loop connection. The other end of the leader has a very small ring to which I tied on 6-8 ft of 10lb maxima tippet with a uni knot. I greased the upper 1/3 of the leader starting at the fly line. It cast well even in the wind, turning the fly over nicely and laying out straight. When playing a fish it all held together fine and I liked the way the loop to loop connection slide throught he guides so smoothly with no fear of a knot catching on a guide. I have some 36 in Steelhead leaders to try on sink tips as soon as the Portland area rivers drop into shape.
