Another dummy thread - LEADERS

Recommended Posts

So, in this example, the leader is made up of 8 sections? If so, seems like a lot of knots....

yup. you got it. i also have an issue with that many knots. the more knots the larger chance of failure.

I use mainly furled leaders. The lighter ones I use for trout are made from thread. I have a few thread ones that are furled for bass and pan fish. I have three or four that are made from fluorocarbon. I use these mainly in salt water. If I'm being lazy, which is most of the time, when I'm fishing for bass or pan fish, I use a straight piece of fluorocarbon.
