Co-ho, Silver! Away!
You’re welcome!thank you so much for this, i really appreciate you taking the time to write out your formulas. I'd like to try out the freshwater for sure. When I fish streamers, I tend to just tie on a 3-6' section of flat Maxima Fluorocarbon and I have no reason to believe its not working perfectly. But I have definitely been thinking about wanting to tie my own leaders for my favorite spring creek.
I started doing it because tapered leaders are shockingly expensive for what they are, and my kid was tying a ton of wind knots.
Having tinkered for a while, now, I love it. That dry fly leader, for example. The chameleon butt lays out with such nice wiggles in it, and the other parts add such nice little whorls of slack, that usually you don’t need to mend or feed slack. It’s like autopilot.
