When I began fly fishing, quality leaders were very hard to find.
Everything You Wanted To Know About Flyfishing Leaders But Were Afraid To Ask

The best leaders were hand tied by the Dan Baily Company in Livingston, Montana or the Orvis Company. The problem is that the tying process involved wetting the knots which, when stored over a period of time, made the knots weak and anglers would use a new leader only to have it break at the knot. Today there are countless options for anglers to choose from not only do anglers have to choose a length and a taper design, but leaders are available utilizing Monofilament, Fluorocarbon, Braided and Furled technology.

Jorgeson Finishes Last 5.14 of Dawn Wall
by Climbing Staff
In a comeback worthy of basketball's Final Four, Kevin Jorgeson has redpointed the final two 5.14 pitches of the Dawn Wall, sending Pitch 15 yesterday and Pitch 16 (the famed Dyno Pitch) this afternoon. He is now starting the remaining 5.13 pitches that his partner, Tommy Caldwell has already completed, leading to Wino Tower and the end of the route's most difficult climbing.
Jorgeson had struggled with Pitch 15 (5.14+) for a week: He made 11 redpoint attempts over seven days, usually falling on the heartbreaking crux near the end of the traverse pitch. After sending yesterday afternoon, he began attempting the eight-foot sideways dyno of the 16th pitch and quickly did the dyno but fell on the 5.14 lieback corner above it. More info...
