I'm writing an article on fly leaders and wanted to know if you had anything to add to what you wrote in your book. It's been a while. I plan to discuss commercial knotless leaders, knotted leaders, furled and woven leaders and a new coated type I just heard about. I want to give readers some idea of the range of choices there are and the trade-offs. Any informatin you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Mark H.
