Sizes for Gut Leaders for Fly Fishing

Some dealers list silkworm gut, beginning with the thinnest ordinarily sold, as follows: Regular, Padrona Second, Padrona First, Marana, and Marana Double Thick. Others have discarded this nomenclature and list in this way: Light Trout, Heavy Trout, Heavy Bass, Extra Heavy Bass, Salmon, and Heavy Salmon. For average fishing, the locality and conditions making some difference, the first two sizes in each list are the most used. Leaders may be had three, six and nine feet in length. A nine-foot leader is too long to use on a trout fly-rod since there is danger of reeling the knot between line and leader through the tip-guide, when the line is at once locked fast. A six-foot leader is about right and this may be made by looping together two leaders of three feet, preferably of different caliber, so as to form a tapered leader.

Gut smaller in caliber than Regular can be obtained from most dealers and is known as Refina and Fina, Refina being the thinnest. "Drawn" gut is the thinnest obtainable and is the result of stripping the natural gut through diamonds or steel plates thus reducing the caliber and paring away all inequalities. Drawn gut is mostly used by English dry-fly fishers and, at times, is useful to the American angler when fishing extremely clear streams where the trout are highly educated. Much annoyance may be avoided by always having the leader and fly-snells of about the same size gut; otherwise the cast will continually become tangled; for if, for instance, you are using a fairly thick leader and dropper-flies tied on fine gut, the fine snells will not stand away from the leader but wrap themselves around it persistently.
