Thumbs up Add a small loop

Charlie, to make it last longer, you should tie a loop (perfection loop or surgeons loop), in the loop at the tapered end of the furled leader. That way you can add tippets and need and not worry about damaging the furled leader's small loop. I have three of them right now and have used them for almost three years now without any problems...plus they make modifying your leader a snap, just add the size and length of tippet you need. They don't work that well for nymphs (I guess the furls trap aie and/or add surface area to drag), but their great for dry flies...

They may not be perfect for casting, but I have a very imperfect cast to begin with...
