From another happy customer.
Thank you MIchael,

I will also share these with friends because I am a true believer in your leaders and know my friends will be too once they try them.. I have had a 76 inch dry fly leader on my 2 wt. rod for over a year now, caught lots of fish on that leader and its still going strong. I love the drag free presentation it provides me and for dry fly fishing it can't be beat.

With the Flourocarbon steelhead leaders I usually fish a streamer with a nymph dropper about 18 inches behind. No indicator and let the flies drift and then swing downstream. The flouro leader makes casting a pleasure and the faster sink rate gets the flies in the strike zone quicker. The spro swivel has stopped any occurrence of twist during cast or retrieve.

There really is no economics in fishing tapered leaders vs the furled leaders given how long your leaders last. Combine that with improved (less) drag and more strikes and I don't see why everyone doesn't fish your leaders.

Thanks for the great service.
