    I fish very small streams and for the last couple of years have been using Mr Trout's furled leaders. I find they help enormously with the turnover and, more importantly with these fussy french Fario's, the presentation is very delicate. Even the pick up is discreet. More often than not, because of the lack of room for a backcast, I'm rollcasting and frankly, they are great at that.
    Furled leaders most definitely in my situation/opinion.

    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    Improve turnover, are more supple, and provide a bit more give when setting the hook and fighting a fish. See MrTrout for the beat around!
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon.

    I've gotta agree with Vermontdrifter, give Mr Trout a shout.
