Simply the best for tying leaders

I love the George Anderson hand-tied leaders. I started tying these a few years back to learn more about leader construction and maybe save some money. Excluding all of the leaders I wasted trying this out (which wasn't really a waste as I caught some fish on them), it is definitely a bargain to tie your own with Maxima. Even though the Chameleon is advertised as stiffer, I like the feel of the Maxima clear in the butt, taper, and tippet much better. To me it just feels stiffer.

The finest material for tying leaders for floating flies

Low memory clear nylon monofilament for leader butts and transitions for floating presentations. Nylon is neutral bouyancy and responds to wax or grease type floatants to stay on top and not drag dry flies under. I use 25 pound typically for trout leader butts on 4 to 6 weight fly lines. With a nested nail knot you can drop to 15 pound test for the next section, then 8 pound followed by 2X or 3x tippets. For small flies split the tippet length and finish with 4X or 5X. If you are under 5X you are fishing size 22 flies. Lubricate the knots with fly floatant before you thighten them. Siliva is not helpful. Some people use Zap A Gap (the only waterproof Cyanoacrylic). Use pliers to tighten the knot. You do not have strong enough teeth to tighten this material.

A final section of less visible (low refraction) fluorcarbon can be added for further invisibility but I keep this to 8 inches when tying on dry flies. Subsurface nymphs can have longer fluorocarbon tippets.
