wire leaders

Postby Kpete » Mon May 11, 2015 12:15 pm

I have been using the small Wide Glide and the leader continues to foul in the front hook. I think I remember Larry fishing a single wire leader with the large Wide Glide. The leader I am using is multi-strand and flexible. Any advice? Thanks for the help.

Stiffer wire leader.

I find that a too flexible leader tends to collapse as the wide glide glides forward. This is what allows the wide glide to overtake and tangle with the leader.

You don't want it heavy, just stiffer. I hope that this helps some.
I think my bucket list has a hole in the bottom!

Thanks anglingarcher. We share two passions. I hunt with a longbow and home crafted gear.
I wondered if this was the case with the flexible wire. More flex is not always better. I am sure there will always be some fowling, but I was experiencing fouling after 2-3 pulls as the bait came forward and then turned on the stop. Thanks again for the help.
