You may have to attach it. I don't think the site can imbed png.

Then again, you might not be able to attach it. Try hosting it on www.imgur.com.

Yeah, but the text is what I can't read.

Yeah. Hmm. Not sure what to suggest, beyond making it larger. I think it's readable enough for anyone that is interested.

I would copywrite that Tom . When I make it larger I can read it fine but someone with reading glasses might have a problem

I furl mine outta 3/0 uni thread and they are very supple and they sink real fast. But I also us 2ilb mono too.

The butt is a 5 strand leg and then I step it down 4 times 1 strand per leg. So when you furl the 2 leags together you butt of your finished leader would be 10 strands and your the end you attach your tippet to would be 4 strands. A fiished leader is around 6ft for me.

FWIW, I just wanted to comment on this since I finally tried out a couple I'd made today.

I didn't go the Afish route as much as I went the Youtube method, and they worked like a champ. So much so, that when using my 3wt, I could clearly see the hinge point from line to leader messing everything else up from the most gentle, perfectly laid presentations I think I've ever done.

Matter of fact, I simply whipped up a short 4" piece and then used some mono to double nail knot it to the line, giving me a loop for changing leaders with an effortless transition, from 6 strands to 4 to 2 to tippet.

Excellent topic, I really like this.

afish, super helpful post, but I'm having a hard time reading the picture you posted. I'd love to maybe try and post a higher resolution copy. You can email (PM me for the address) the PP (I'm assuming PowerPoint) file and I"ll see what I can do.

I've been having a really hard time with store bought mono-tapered 'knotless' leaders and memory, will this pretty much clear up that problem? Also, can you just roll them up and store them in a leader wallet without any problems, ie. that dreaded memory?
