Experiment with Fly Fishing Leader Formulas for Success


If you enjoy tinkering with leader formulas and materials. You’re not alone. Even if you use a knotless leader as a base the variations made from there are many. You can find many great and famous formulas to use but more importantly understand. What better way to understand than to actually tie and fish with them yourself. The leaders above are not revolutionary but little ideas and tweaks that I am curious about. Of course the Tight Brush formula is something I have been using but not completely perfected. It is designed to be fished with very little fly line beyond the tip. If you don’t prefer tippet rings then simply use an albright knot instead. I would enjoy hearing from you about these formulas and your own creations. Feel free to comment below.
