Recommended Posts

I bought a cortland precision II 9' , 12lb tapered steelhead leader. When I try to tie a nail knot to my fly line it won't tighten up enough to stay ly line. What's wrong? I'm heading out tomorrow am and need to get this fixed ASAp!! Thanks

Are you tying it at the very end of the fly line? because it will slip a bit before it tightens so tie it a couple inches up the line and then trim it.

the butt section of the leader is so darn stiff you gotta just show it who's boss. It put up a hell of a fight though biggrin.gif
