    Default Frled Leader Swap

    I would like to propose a Furled Leader Swap.

    It seems there are alot of different materials being used and differnt formulas also.
    I've never tryed to hold a swap, but I think this would be a great way for each of
    us accross the country to see the different Furled Leader styles being used. If any
    one is up for a Furled Leader Swap please post a response. I live near Jack H. & Warren P.
    so if every one wants to do this I will check with them, and set up some details.

    UPDATE:

    All that want to join in the Swap should let me know by no later than 12/14/12.
    I will need to receive the Leaders no later than 1/11/13. (add return postage & address with leaders for swapped leaders) (plan on five or more days for mail)
    I will mail all of the Swapped Leaders back out on 1/14/13.
    On 12/15/12 I will Private Message all participants to confirm participation, and I will add my mailing adress.

    Rules:
    Material to be used: this is up to each participant
    Leader Length: 7'-0" (between 6'-6" thru 7'-6" will be considerd 7'-0")
    Information to be added with each leader: Length, Material, Floating OR Sinking, and Builder (and contact information this is optional)
    Any other information maybe added at the Builders discretion.

    This is a list of participants as of 11/26/12 we will take more participants until 12/14/12.
    On 12/15/12 I will Private Message all participants to confirm participation, and I will add my mailing adress.

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    I have a question for you.
    do we include the pattern of the leader when we send them in?

    Joe,

    Like Jack, as soon as I know the exact number in this swap, I will bring my furled leaders to you at the January Lynchburg Fly Fishing Club meeting in January and have an envelope already stamped and addressed back to me for the leaders you will be sending to me.

    Merry Christmas
    Warren

    I'll be submitting 6' 6" leaders made with 7X tippet material and rated at 3.1 lb. test per strand. (9.3 lb. test with a tippet end dia. of only 0.24). Tippet rings included.
