I've been fly fishing for bass and panfish for the past 45 years. I've been fishing for trout for the past 27 years. I've been a fly tyer for the past 40 years.
About eight or nine years ago, I read about something called a furled leader. I had never heard of one before, but the more I read, the more I decided I wanted to make one up. I put together the basic equipment I needed to make one, and gave it a spin. To be honest, that first attempt was pretty crude, but I was amazed at how well it fished. I was hooked on furled leaders.
I made a few extra, and gave them out to some of my fishing friends. Each and everyone of my friends loved using my leaders as much as I did.
Beginning in mid summer of 2008, I decided to put a few leaders up for sale on Ebay. Since then, I've sold close to a thousand leaders and have hundreds of satisfied (repeat) customers. I've decided to put this site up to help expedite the order process for those repeat customers, as well as (hopefully) a few new ones.
In 2009 I discovered the joys of fishing with a fixed-length-line outfit (Tenkara). I developed a series of furled lines specific for this application.
Each of my leaders/lines is totally hand crafted by myself. Each and every inch of the leader runs through my hands countless times during the furling process. I use a different proprietary material and formula for each model of my leaders. I have developed a unique method that eliminates the taper transition nodes you often on other furled leaders. Fountainhead Fly Fishing Furled Leaders are the most consistent furled leaders on the market.
I won't send you a leader that I would not fish with myself. If you ever have a problem, please contact me and I will remedy the situation to your complete satisfaction. That is my personal promise, fisher person to fisher person.
If it's more convenient for you, I also sell my leaders on Ebay. My Ebay user name is Michipeshu (the mythical fish devil that inhabited the Great Lakes). Do a search on Furled Leaders, I always have leaders posted. My pictures are all shot on a red background. Take a look at my feedback. Not only will you see alot of kind words, but you'll also see numerous repeat orders for multiple leaders. Once people try my leaders, they want to fish with them on all their lines.
I consider it the highest privilege and honor to have you fish with my leaders.
Thanks for visiting my site,Tight Lines,
