Product Review: BlueSky Furled Leaders

This week on MidCurrent, reviewer Robert Morselli discovers that modern versions of the classic furled leader — as exemplified by BlueSky’s latest products — provide significant advantages for those hoping to achieve the utmost in delicate presentation. “Handling a furled leader for the first time is a little strange. They’re completely and uniformly limp, from the tippet all the way to the end of the butt section. This overall limpness allows for a smoother and more complete energy transfer during a cast. To be fair, many mono leaders allow for smooth power transfer, but furled leaders unfurl more evenly, increasing an angler’s ability to deliver flies more delicately.”
