Stillwater for floating lines

Category: Stillwater
Extremely long special purpose leader designed by Wayne Stegen for stillwater fishing.
Attach a 9' braided intermediate leader to the fly line and tie this leader on to that, making a 27.5' leader!
Should you wish to switch over to dry-flies, simply remove the braided leader from the system and extend the tippet section upfront if need be.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
