    Airflo suggest tying a simple overhand knot to form the loop on these, which I do. But it annoys me that the loop then goes off at an angle with that method. It isn't so noticeable on a trout leader but on a salmon polyleader the angle is quite obvious. It's just a wee thing, but it kinda irks...

    Just invested in a Gaelforce EMT 9/10 Multi-Tip for my 14ft'er Can't find any advice if you need or recommend to use a Polyleader (or Versi leader etc ) on the end of the 15ft kit tip before your mono is looped on?

    With the low, clear water conditions this year, I was wondering if I would have been better using a Riverge Tapered Flourocarbon leader (for its underwater invisibility), as opposed to a standard polyleader? Does anybody sense they have spooked less fish using this method? Would this be...

    Realise there are a fair few posts on people's preferred configuration of polyleaders and tippets, so apologies for raising this topic again, but I am still unsure whether I should use a polyleader together with a tapered leader or should I just attach a straight piece of tippet material to the...

    I am using a shakespeare switch rod 8/9 with a Barrio switch fly line mostly i have been using a 5ft slow sink polyleader but today i used it with a 10ft slow sink polyleader with a 2ft tippet with the 5ft it was quite easy to cast but with the 10ft i am struggling the tippet is landing in a...

    Can i still use an airflo slow sinking polyleader at a reduced length from 5ft down to 4ft.
  9. Rookies Corner
    Hi folks, Just a question, I don't have any dedicated sinking fly lines, all floating shooting head lines with polyleader tips I mostly on the waters these lines are perfect.. On one particular water most of the fishing is in fast water and deep the river isn't wide so I normally a switch rod...
