These leaders are made with approximately 100' of 6/0 UNI-Thread. The leader is tapered in 6 steps from 22 strands to 6 strands. Furled leaders, constructed of UNI-Thread, are the ultimate for dry fly fishing and are preferred by most experienced furled leader users over those constructed with monofilament (too stiff and springy). Supple thread furled leaders have almost no memory – an attribute which reduces drag. They cast very accurately and land gently on the water. Their ability to turn over long tippets and flies exceeds any other type of tapered leader on the market. Once you fish these leaders, you will never go back! One quick application of a paste floatant, such as Mucilin or Loon Payette Paste Floatant will float the leader for most of a day's fishing. These leaders do not pick up and spray water while casting as hollow, braided leaders do. Furled leaders are also durable – furled leaders often last more than one season with just tippet changes! They are therefore quite economical in the long run. A butt loop is woven into the leader during construction – it’s a limp, flexible loop that you can barely feel as you pull it through your fingers.
