As promised, I am going to post a few pictures of my powered furled leader board.

The first picture is a shot down the board from the power head. The board is fully adjustable for anylength leader up to about 9 feet. I added a self sticking tape measure so you dont have to look for one every time you change leader sizes.
Image
The next shot shows the power head. Both hooks rotate the same direction. The power is supplied by an old sewing machine motor.
Image
The next shot shows the end pin. This is the tip end of the leader when finished. The post is removeable for furling the leader. The hook on the post is where you put the leader while furling. The hooh is made from a couple of large snap swivels so the leader caform as the butt end is twisted.
Image
This picture shows the far end of the board where the tention line goes to the weight.
Image
This is the weight that holds tention on the leader while furling. I use different weights depending on the material being furled.
Image
This shows the leader just before the furling begins. The tippet spool keeps each leg seperate so it does not twist together too soon. The end pin has been removed.
Image
And finally, the finished product.

Standard thread leaders 5' or 6'6" suitable for 3-6 wt rods $6.00 each. That is what is in the picture...I can produce 2-4 wt leaders, in thread, but currently in a limited color selection....tan. More materials should be arriving this week. Uni-thread leaders 5' or 6'6" $7.00 each. These can be made for 2-4 0r 3-6 wts.

I am also producing some leaders out of clear polyester thread. I have used these on the 2wt for dry fly fishing and really like them. They don't float, but ride just under the surface. Price for these will be $7.00 each.

If anyone would like to order some, just let me know.

Thanks,
Brad
