What started as a fishing trip, ended in a thought that changed the way I made my 3 strand silk leaders.

As destiny would have it, while on the Upper Yakima River in Ellensburg WA, I struck up a conversation with a woman who was fly fishing and later discovered that she was a cancer survivor.  She was using the art of fly fishing to stretch and rebuild the muscles damaged from her surgery.

While watching her arm and body motion, and the short cast due to muscle damage along with the extreme frustration shown with each cast, an idea was born.

I designed a three strand, weight forward, silk leader, with the ultimate goal of; ease of casting, improved casting distance and an overall confidence builder.

While I still make a taper three strand silk furled leader, I have chosen to concentrate my efforts and designs around the weight forward concepts.

With the ease of casting and fly turnover, the added distance and control gained, along with the overall characteristics displayed of the leader, proved I was on the right track.
