Build Your Own Leaders

I am sure you would get more and better replies if mentioned what kind of leaders. Steel, wire, etc.

Thorne Brothers is a good place for most kinds of leader material; solid wire, multistrand wire, mono (love the 200lb stuff fo Muskie), and various hard and soft mono for steelhead and fly fishing.

Actually -- I do make a monthly pilgrimage to Thorne but I was unaware that they had these sort of options. Several ideas just came to me this past weekend and I had no idea where to start. The interlink wasn't being too friendly with my request.

Thanks for the info

it's all on the fly angler side. they moved a bunch more muskie lures/stuff over there. maybe that's why? more exposure for wide eyed muskie fisherpeople with blinders on. grin

yes. here's some helpfull directions... there's two ways to get there.

first one... go toward the door you normally would but instead of going in turn right and go in the next door, ask attendent.

way two... go into the normal door take three or four paces, not sprints, paces, stop and look to your right. you need to turn your whole body too. then take two paces forward and about, ohhhh, 7 or eight paces to your left again, look at the wall on your left. it should be right there. if not, they sold it all. good luck.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
