And another thing: there are those who will you YOU MUST NEVER EVER USE FLUOROCARBON WHEN FISHING DRIES! Okay. Now watch the very same so called experts inform you just how to fish dries from a drifting boat with mono as their leader.
What is the first thing they do...get out some mud usually fullers earth or Hunt’s brand or suchlike then apply to their mono so it sinks. Then tell you to fan cast leaving your flies on the water for around 10 seconds then recast and so on. Sweet Jesus. You think a fluorocarbon leader is going to drag your dries down quicker than mud on mono not to mention how mud on mono looks: like a big thick hawser rope. Bullshit baffles brains comes to mind.
Just my two pence worth.
The only other person on here who has spotted this. Always makes me laugh does this thing about fluoro dragging flies under in seconds. In fact, when I use fluoro for dries whether on river or lake I always have a slight feeling of disappointment when the flies stubbornly stay afloat despite the best efforts of the leader material.
