"Finally got around to writing you about your leaders in salt water. Not to put too fine a point on it, but they performed in an absolutely fantastic manner. I was fishing after dark near Mobile Bay. People on the water usually put lights up which attract bait fish which attract bigger fish etc. You know the drill. I was using a fly (name unknown). I tied it on a 2/0 long shank hook, no tail or body but a lot of white hair 1.5 to 2 times the shank length, black thread wrapped to form a big head, painted eyes (white w/black center). In less than 2hrs, landed four redfish around 2.5 lbs each and a speckled trout near the same size. Casting with an 8wgt rod with floating line. The leader was casting 40+ feet with perfect turnover. I let the fly sink, two long jerks of the line, let it sink and two more jerks. Usually got the strike on the second set of jerks. I think they see the movement, come over to investigate and attack on the second movement. Given the time of day and the water color (a little murky) I think the brown leaders are the way to go.
Keep up the good work. Happy Holidays."
