    Default Furled Leader Rings

    I am looking for the small rings typically used as the end on a furled leader. Anyone have any or knows who sells these.

    You might want to look into the teeny swivels some of the guys put on their leaders, too. Seems like that might be a good option.

    I once found a cheap chain necklace in a kids jewellry store (Ardenes in Canada) that the individual links were strong enough to lift a 5 lb weight. I made dozens of furled leaders out of them. The only thing I don't like about rings is that there seems to be some "hinging" of the tippet when casting. In other words the tippet would canter left or right slightly (at least in my experience). The only real problem is when I use dries and fly placement on the water is more critical otherwise they are fine.
