Why are Thread Furled Leaders Better?

Thread Furled Fly Fishing Leaders have no memory therefore every bit of energy from the cast actually gets to the fly.  With typical mono / nylon leaders, so much of the energy is lost in the cast because of the existing coils / memory that are impossible to completely remove from the mono / nylon leader.  Going back to basic physic's, energy travels through a straight line, if a leader does not completely straighten out, energy IS LOST.  Also, these leaders are very economical, one leader can last an entire fishing season.  I know of many fisherman who have fished for three to four months going two or three days a week with the same leader.

I am often asked about what knot to use when stepping my tippet down.  For Years, I only used the knot above.  Now, depending on species (size of fish), I use the traditional blood knot, as well as this "Left's Simple Blood Knot"

I am big fan of this knot.  Simple to tie, and it has never failed me...

Q?

– What type of Knots to use

A.

A:        I use a standard Clinch Knot.  I typically tell people to use the same knot they tie their fly’s on with.  Reason being, if I recommend a knot you are not familiar with, in the end, most people will tie what they know.

A:        If you choose the Shorb loop option for your leader, you will need to tie a perfection loop of a Davy loop into your tippet and attach the loop 2 loop method.
