    At the Bells festival in october i tried this leader.I made 2 droppers on the main leader but left a small 4cm tip at the end.I made a knot at the tip of this and added splitshot as conditions dictated.It does not hinge your line,the flies cant break off because the splitshot damaged the leader.I did not get to fish it the whole time as water levels were lower than usual so very heavy weighs were not needed.I think oversees this is known as a slinky.There they even use lead wire at the end insted of splitshot.They actually have many forms of the slinky,but i found this one works easiest.

    very interesting idea bud...i like it, especially when messing around on the vaal (anywhere really) and you dont have heavy enough flies to get down.
    your other flies would also "free" drift which sould be good.

    thank you. will remember this

    You should give the UV Fly Paint indicators a try John as discussed in Christiana. They work great!

    i have started using them now as well. it forces you to have better contact with your flies so i think my catch rate has increased as well...

    love them
