Wow, the price of taylor made leaders is going up. Makes sense to tie your own for sure. Even the leader material is rising in price. Which brings me to the idea that I know NOTHING about leader requirements for chironomids and fishing them. Does one need fluorocarbon or can one get by with monofilament or a combination of both? And then there is the size and diameter/test strength. And length, but I suppose that the length would be determined by the fish and not the leader maker. Anyone care to educate an old dog with a new trick? Thanks in advance.
