BLUESKY FURLED LEADERS

Why more fly fishermen are choosing tapered furled leaders:
Each leader is individually hand woven from premium nylon -- furled and twinned into a beautiful taper.

Outstanding casting: BlueSky Remarkable Furled Tapered Leader represents a vast improvement over mono or braided leaders. When casting into a head wind or side wind, the furled leader will drive the tippet and fly to the target with authority.

Grasp the leader by each end. Gently stretch. Notice how all memory disappears instantly. No annoying, stiff, springy coils. Try this with a mono leader. The furled construction provides another important bonus: built-in overstrike protection for those unexpected hard strikes and big runs.

Try this. Hold the leader by the butt end. Cast the leader just as you would a fly line. Yes, you can actually cast our furled leaders by hand. Even our gossamer-fine UltraLight leader will cast all by itself. Imagine how improved your casting will be.

This leader, like all our leaders, attaches using the no knot loop-to-loop method. This means you can quickly switch to another BlueSky leader in seconds.

Detailed instructions are included with your leaders. And, you can always contact us with any questions.

  • Medium for 6 to 8 wt. fly line. (Length 5 ft. 9 in.)  $11.95   
     
  • Medium StillWater for 6 to 8 wt. fly line. A wonderful leader for lakes and ponds when a longer leader that offers outstanding distance as well as delicate presentation is required.

Ten inches of kink resistant medical grade Titanium with DuoLoc snap gives you high durability and toughness and maximum corrosion resistance while cutting through the weeds. For 7wt and heavier 20lb Breaking Strain. (Length 6ft. 6in.)  $14.95   
     
  • Six-Plus Saltwater leaders with tippet strengths of 10 lb., 12 lb., 15 lb., and 20 lb. (Length 9ft. with tippet - just tie on a fly and it's ready to go! There is also enough material to construct a small Bimini, spider hitch, or other style of loop. For an even longer leader, simply add tippet or trim back to desired length for a shorter leader.)   $13.95   


SUGGESTED TIPPETS FOR LEADERS:

UltraLight  size furled leader: 4X to 8X
Light  size furled leaders: 3X to 6X
Medium  size furled leaders: 0X to 4X
Heavy  size furled leader: 0X to 2X
Spey  size furled leader: 0X to 4X
We also recommend experimenting with various combinations of tippets.

We recommend tying a 6-8 inch (extender see picture) onto the tip loop using a clinch knot. Then tie a loop onto the other end. Attach your tippet to this loop. This allows you to add and remove tippets quickly, protecting the furled leader loop.

SUGGESTED EXTENDER SIZES:
Ultralite  4X
Light  2X
Light StillWater  2X
Medium  0X or 1X
Medium StillWater  0X or 1X


Economical: While the usable life of mono leaders is measured in hours, the life of our furled leaders is measured in months or seasons. That's because our leaders are not "throw-away" leaders. When you are finished with the day's fishing, simply snip off the tippet. The convenient loop-to-loop connection also allows you to switch to our BriteSpot strike indicator leader or another leader in seconds.

Furled, not braided: BlueSky furled tapered leaders are not "braided" leaders. Braided leaders have a hollow center. Braided leader tends to pick up and hold water, which in turn makes the leader heavier and effects casting performance. When cast, a braided leader has a tendency to "splat" the surface of the water and spray the small droplets contained in its core. Many say that these negative characteristics easily "spook" fish.

BlueSky furled tapered leader has no hollow core. It does not pick up or absorb water and causes no spray of released droplets. It descends gently to the water, improving your presentation. You will notice improved casting immediately.

Also, many braided leaders are known to be too limp to effectively turn over the tippet and fly and deliver it to the target.
