I wouldn't have been able to catch this fish without the nice presentation "turn-over" of your leaders. I landed the fly right in front of a rock eddy at 65 feet, precisely 2 feet from the river bank and got a nice WHAM!I wouldn't have been able to catch this fish without the nice presentation "turn-over" of your leaders.

I'm completely sold on the leaders. I was very skeptical, thinking, there is no way a leader they can see will do as well as a mono leader. What I've found is: 1) the fish don't seem to mind at all, especially since I can now use even longer tippets and still get good presentation, and 2) the ability to turn over heavier, bigger, or more wind resistant flies is well worth it on their merit. If you need a reference, just point them my way.

I had never used a furled leader, until purchased my first 2 from you earlier this year... I am so impressed with their castability and versatility that I have bought several more since. I also recommended them to a couple of my fly fishing friends, who have become customers of Streamside Leaders. I also taught a novice how to cast a fly and catch fish in a matter of a couple of hours utilizing your product.  
 Thanks, Kirk

My son was trying out a furled leader for the first time.  After a few casts, he recognized the castability of this style.  On the second day of fishing, things were a bit slow.  My rule has always been seeing nothing, switch to an attractor, and give them something to look at. A half hour later, my son caught his biggest trout ever.  This hog measured in at 23.5in!!  He's hooked on your furled leaders now!!

I knew this would happen. My son and i were out at a local pond he was learning to fly cast and was trying to clear a snarl in his reel. The carp picked up his yellow wooly bugger just as he cleared the snarl. he emailed this pic and insisted that i put it up on my web site as this was his first fish on a fly rod and he was using one of my leaders.
