DOCTORING THE LEADER


DOCTORING THE LEADER

The ordinary snelled fly is none too easy to remove from the leader loop after it has been settled into place by a few minutes of persistent casting. It is sometimes pretty stubborn to bring away when you want to change flies in a hurry. Here is a kink that will save many a minute’s fumbling: Just tie a small knot in the end of each of the loops on the leader. Hang the fly on this knotted loop the same as usual.

Now, when you wish to remove the fly, take the knot you have tied between the thumb and finger of the right hand and 1oop on the fly snell between the thumb and finger of the left hand and pull them apart. You will be surprised to see how the little knot facilitates this. If desired you can also tie a similar knot in the loop of the fly snell, but this is not necessary.
