Furled Leader Store

Leader size choice

Due to holidays the store is currently closed it will be open again in September.

I am often asked as to what leader to use for a particular rod length/weight. The tapers I use have been found to work well with rods from a 2 weight through to 12 weight rods (tested in the Seychelles - not by me sadly).

The best advice on length of leader to rod weight is as follows:


Line Weight

Furled leader length


0 to 5

1 metre


5 to 8

1.6 metre
