Leader Construction: Improving your fishing success rate!
On Tuesday 5th of March 2013 Daniel Factor, a Protea Senior Fly Fisherman, representing South Africa in the World Championships in Norway this year, was the guest speaker at the monthly technical meeting of the Jacaranda Fly Fishing Club. His presentation was on the construction of different leader types for an array of applications. His enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise were greatly appreciated by all who attended the evening. With many accolades to his credit, this young man knows his stuff and it was abundantly clear to all who sat glued to their seats enjoying his antics while he explained the construction of the different types of make up of a progressive and a regressive leader for top water dry flies as well as nymphing. He is very technically inclined but he explained everything in sufficient detail so that all could understand. Daniel will also be holding a day clinic soon and members will do well to attend this clinic for more personal one on one attention. Another great evening enjoyed by 38 members who attended and still having Serious Fun!
