Braided Leaders

Hi,

Two days ago I found at GFF an article about making braided leaders. Once I felt all that knowledge pulsating inside my brain, I built the wood board, and started making my first "Furled Leader"...

After 24 hours of precise hand work, I'm proud to share with you my success!!

P.S. I'm writing a totorial, but, in the meanwhile, if someone needs advice, please tell me!

materials...

Carlos,

Do I detect a bit of leather in there? Where did you get your materials. That would be a welcome addition to the article. What pound test is the chain?

We are talking about serious...

We are talking about serious leader making...

First of all, that is not a chain, it is the tippet, a light one, if we mind it is a metallic tippet.

I haven't made that leader with leather, so, if you see any leather strip it should be one of my fingers!!

The materials... You can find them all at GFF on-line store, just click the link:

I know you can't make a leader as strong as this one the first time, but if you are constant and really patient, the second time you'll try it you can do something similar!

Best!
