Why more fly fishermen are choosing tapered

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
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.

SUGGESTED TIPPETS FOR
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:
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.
