Thread: how do you make a furled monofilamet sighter

  1. Default how do you make a furled monofilamet sighter

    New guy and first post. I looked and performed a couple searches, but did not find any reference to the term "furled sighter". Does anyone have a method they are willing to share for tying a furled monofilament sighter? It appears to me there are a couple available commercially, but I'd like to try tying my own. Thanks.

    Depending on the length you desire you could braid three strands of monofilament.

    'RT' beat me to the web sites.

    Just me, and Lord knows how many others, fruled leaders will/can last for years. Just my .02 cents but the main run out of Kevlar thread to a tippit ring.

    Beyond that do what you want with the leader's. Obviously the fly line/leader's have to be a reasonable match.
