Distance between fly and paddle?


Recommended Posts

In an earlier post I ask which paddle to use in front of an oceana fly but I was wondering if you are using an 11" DW paddle what length leader would you typically have between the back of the paddle and the nose of the fly? I know by reading off this forum that leader lengths can vary from day to day. How do you change leader lengths or do you have them tied with different lengths and what are those lengths? Thanks in advance.

Most of the the time I run my l leaders about 2-3 time the length of the flasher and that works most of the summer I do have a few flys that I found works better with a leader of 4ft but for the most part 20-30 inches works good.

I run 25" behind 8" paddles and 35" behind 11" paddles. I pre-tie all of mine because I want them to be consistent. A consistent leader length leads to a consistent action and it should make it easier to dial in your spread. Of course, I could definitely be wrong.
