Some time ago I bought some furled leaders on closeout at the Gig Harbor fly shop... man, I really like these! So the other day when I planned on taking my kids to the river I realized that I had no leaders for 5wt and under. So in a rush I youtubed furled leaders and there's this vid of this guy doing it by hand. Looked simple enough so I tried it. Grabbed some 6lbs spider flouro I got way back in the day and went to town and made a 7ft leader. worked like a charm and casted dries all day long and even fooled some fish... So today I tied up some larger mono for the salt, I thought why not try some 10lb mono. So this time I involved a drill and some paper clips. Made my furled leader with 10lb mono and hit the beach... so nice, casts nice, caught fish and stayed limp the entire time. Yes I even coiled it before I went to the beach and still, once uncoiled it just stayed limp. I have to say, I'm going to keep this furled leader thing going the rest of this season, even when the Coho are in. I like how the flies cast and love how the line is limp the entire time... anyone else here fish furled leaders in the salt? It took me less then 10 minutes to make one, it's hard to think of a better way to use leaders for me now. I loop to loop it to my fly line and then loop a short tippet section and tie my fly to it. I did poppers and sb surface today with good success in both categories. If you haven't given the furled leader in the salt a shot, it may be worth your while. Besides, tying your own flies and building your own rods as I know some of you do, making your own leaders just adds to the fun and they work real nice too.
