You can increase this length depending on your casting ability, wind, fly size, etc. Simply put, the most amazing trout dry fly leader money can buy.
Cutthroat offer these leaders with two different tippet ends. The small micro ring which is 2mm in diameter (so small they float on the end of the leader) or the shorb loop. This is a loop woven into the leader. This option slightly increases the breaking strength of the leader.

Questions and Answers
Q: Can I tie Thread Furled Leader to the Fly Line?
A: Yes, use a Three wrap nail knot, cinch knot tight and cut off the loop
Q: What if I do not like the loop or ring connector?
A: We have many customers that tie tippet directly to the leader using a double surgeon's knot. I often tie 4X tipper to the leader, then step down to 5x.
Q: What paste floatant is best?
A: I often prepare my fishing gear the night before I leave. At this time, I will apply a liberal amount of Otter Butter Floatant to my Dry Fly Leader. Most often, this one application is all that is needed. If the leader does sink, I use the Leader Floatant by Loon to put on a wet leader. Otter butter works better on a dry leader, Leader Floatant works better on a leader that has been already saturated.
