Broken Down Spey Freak
These arrived today. Nice and long for the long lines. Can't wait to give them a go.
I make my own furled leaders. Far superior then the tapered section leaders imo . Turn over flies great, no memory and can fish dries or wets. Made a jig and a littleHave you tried tying your own tapered, Pretty easy to do and can set up a jig to expedite the process, prior to any major trip I spend a couple evenings make up various configurations for various situations.
There are also a number of formulas out there
I may order a couple and add some tippet ... they may be a good option for grease lining a wet fly.The diameter looks ok and you could just add on a couple feet of tippet if needed. I ordered them out of Sherbrooke Qc.
Have you had a chance to cast them?
Vic, your leader formula is interesting : 25-50-25
Mine is one of two formulas: 60-20-20 and 40-30-30. The latter is for smaller flies and delicate presentations.I tried the straight piece of mono and tippet idea and it didn't work as I hoped, well at least not as nice as my other formulas. I never have tried furled leaders either.
Those Loop leaders don't look hand tied to me, if they are, then I'll pass on them. Dan can you confirm??
Oh. One piece tapered. Got it. Thanks.The packaging threw me off.No. One piece, fully tapered.
