Arizona Wanderings Furled Leaders

Olive Furled Leader

I have a new product up in the Arizona Wanderings Shop. My good buddy, Jason taught me how to tie furled leaders a while back and I truly feel that furled leaders are the ticket. I have fished many types of leaders in many different situations, and at the end of the day, furled leaders just seem to work better and last longer. One of the main benifits of fishing a furled leader is, unlike their monofilament tapered cousins, they have virtually no memory. Right now in the shop, I have up my favorite Uni-thread leaders. I call them “universal” because they truly work in a variety of situations. Before too long, I’ll also have some more specific leaders available including a “nymph/streamer” leader and a “dry fly” specific leader as well.

Benefits of Using Furled Leaders – 

No line memory

Furled leaders turn over beautifully and land softly on the water

No knots

Shorb loop for easy loop-to-loop connection and the fly line

Tippet ring for quick changes of tippet size.

Wide assortment of colors to meet different fishing and lighting situations.

    Slick leaders! I got to try Ben’s new leaders on Lee’s Ferry the other day and they cast and fish very nice. I normally make mine out of mono but I think I like the Uni just as much.

    These are really a better “system” of leaders.

    They’ll get a workout at the Juan in a month or so, I’ll report back with the extended testing…

      Thanks for the support and for teaching me the ways of furled leaders. You’re the man.

    I’ve used both mono and uni furled leaders and still have a half dozen or so stashed somewhere. I did like them.
    not sure they’re the be-all and end-all, but for dries which I fish they are great. I anticipate getting one of these in the mail sooner.

      I think you’ll like these Mike. Should be getting those shirts and leaders in the mail in the next couple of days.
