Site update!

Updated the site, like I said I went for a walk the other day. You can get it here….on this link

Furled Leaders

Ive bought one of those furled leaders over at Highlanders site. . They look mighty fine.

They are hand-woven leaders & represent a vast improvement over nylon & braided types. For top water & sub surface fly fishing they are without equal.

Construction…..Take over 90ft of premium nylon, twist & counter twist to form […]

Fly Tying and Charles Jardine
