Default Re: Leader Options for Technical Dry Fly Presentations

I continue to experiment with braided, furled and nylon leaders for dry fly trout fishing. I find them all useful depending on the desired presentation and other related conditions. I am currently using a thread furled leader for presenting waking and skating patterens for summer steelhead. The leader is 10 ft and I add 5 to 8 ft of tippet. I grease the furled leader with a silicone based flotant. So far, I have been pleased with the results. The Maxima leader sounds interesting. I did meet an angler on stream this summer that was using one on his fine bamboo rod. He was using the dark chamelon for his butt sections. I suppose because it has the most stiffness in the Maxima leader line up.
