This is my newest project. It is designed to build Furled Leaders, Tenkara lines and shooting heads or short fly lines. The head unit pops off so it could be set up further from the lay-out board for Tenkara lines or other projects. The lay-out board is hinged but they are removed for the photo. It is solid oak and has no need for a drill or other power system. Plug it in the wall and get going, push the button and start building leaders.
I am new to the fly fishing and have been trying to research leaders and materials. I was recently on the Spring River in Arkansas where, I was told you can get by with a larger leader material such as 8-10 lb test mono. Sounds simple. After I returned home I was looking at some of my gear and found a spool of 8 lb Spider Wire. I have seen some people reference braided leaders and was wondering if anyone had used this and what the pros and cons of it would be.
