I remember reading the comment from Rex and I have found fewer problems with wind knots myself. I also have found that the few that I get in the actual leader are much easier to remove. Of course any that appear in the tippet are still in most cases impossible to get out and a tippet replacement is in order. I am using a homemade leader and it is only about 5' long.

Rex, a few months ago you responded to my comment that a furreled leaders helps me to avoid tangles and wind knots.  You ssaid that you experienced just the opposite.  Well, in the interim I purchaseed furled leaders for my smaller rods - 6 and 5 weight rods.  You are absolutley correct.  I had more wind knots with the furlled leader.  I quess it depends on the size of the line/rod?  what say you?

Yes - Mike ,I think it was Rex that talked about latex glove.

HEY DICK, FOR YEARS MY WIFE HAS BEEN TELLING ME TO GET THE LEAD OUT OF MY BUTT , AND GET A MOVE ON , AND HERE YOU ARE PUTTING IN SPIDERS!!!!

Comment by dick tabbert on November 27, 2012 at 5:46pm

I think it was a little more pliable because I used head cement on it and wrapped it wet.

Thanks Dick and never would have dreamt it was foam. Great looking treatment though !!!

Comment by dick tabbert on November 27, 2012 at 5:32pm

Rick the hooks I got from Mustad come in a small a little plastic bag almost vinyl looking . I cut it up into 3/16 inch strips. I thought they might be a little heavy but they seemed to work out OK for me. Thank you for your words of encouragement.

Comment by dick tabbert on November 27, 2012 at 5:26pm

I think your referring to the Bluegill Butt Spiders. They have a small amount of lead in the so the butt sinks first but at a slow rate. Thank you Vince for your comment.

Comment by dick tabbert on November 27, 2012 at 5:22pm

Thank you for the words of encouragement. I can tell you they were a challenge cause they are so small. Not something I would want to tie a lot of that is unless the fish can't keep there lips off of them.
