Greased Leaders


Recommended Posts

I've started to use an indicator leader that I've come to love. I use floatant on the indicator portion, but I was wondering if there is something better. Stupid question from a newbe, but wouldn't a thin coat Vaseline work well? Let me know and thanks in advance.

Google Mucilin. Find you a tin. Its hard to beat.

The book I was reading called for that also.

I know of a place to get the old-school red tin mucilin, just in case anybody's interested. Last I checked it was pretty tough to find in the classic tin instead of the new plastic container.

Big downside of the stuff is that it's very temperature unstable. It can turn to liquid on a hot day and pretty much become just a big greasy stain on your vest.

But the tin is cool vintage fly fishing gear.

Pauls Bait and Tackle in south St. Louis city.

Probably not too convenient for the southwest crowd, but they had several new tins of the stuff, probably been there since the 80's.
