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.

    • Got my Helix 5. Now just need to get my sled out of storage and figure out where to mount it.
    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
    • We got a few Sat morning saw lot of birds but not many would come in.
    • We saw a ton of woodies, most wouldn't come close enough. We ended up with 9 ducks...Limited out on Blackducks haha
