I am offering some hand furled leaders as a fund raising item for the UL Forum. I gently furl these by hand using no machines of any kind. They come in a variety of strengths and lengths...in both Monofiliment and Fluorocarbon. Each end has a loop built in. Just add a length of tippet with a perfection loop in it...and go loop to loop. The cost will be 4.00 US for each or 6 for 20.00 with free shipping anywhere in the 48 CONUS states. Just pay me via PAYPAL (fees included) and I will forward money to Jeremy for the forum.

I have the following sizes available now:
I make a 4.5' Fluorocarbon small stream nymph leader that has a hi viz butt section...which works as a close in strike indicator. They are set up for use of 2 or 3 feet of 4-6 X tippet to make a 6.5 to 7.5' leader. Fluorocarbon has some good sinking characteristics...and is similar to a slow sink tip.

I also have 5 - 5.5' in regular monofiliment for the same 4-6X tippet. These are good for dry fly applications and has NO hi viz section. Both of these leaders are good for general UL duty.

For larger applications, I have 6' Mono leaders that are set up for 2-4X tippet. Add 3-4 feet of tippet and you get a good 9-10 foot leader.

I also have some 4.5' Fluorocarbon Leaders for 2-4X tippets in subsurface applications. I like to use 3 feet of 3-4X Fluorocarbon tippet to make a 7.5' Subsurface leader that is perfect in length.

Just PM me if you are interested. For International shipments, costs will have to be re-figured. Again, these sales are for raising money for this forum.


If you want something other than I have listed, let me know and I will see if I can set it up.

I've been furling up a bunch of leaders and have played with some new styles. I have a 3 foot Banty Series for 4-6 X tippet. It is a good length for ultimate close quarter fishing. You put a perfection loop in the end of 2 or 3 feet of tippet and you get a 5 or 6 foot leader. I can furl them in mono or fluorocarbon.

I also started playing with a 4 foot version I call a Tight Quarter leader also for 4-6X tippet. I can do these in both mono and fluorocarbon. Sometimes a 6 to 7 foot leader is better than the common 7 1/2 foot leaders that are commonly sold.

The benefit sale is still going for another month or so.

Again, a set of 6 sells for 20.00 with free shipping. I will donate 10.00 of that the the Ultra Light Forum.

Thx
