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 [...]
