Dry flies need slack, so give it to them. This hand-tied Harvey leader is designed to land in s-curves throughout the leader. Flies without slack drag immediately, and most trout refuse a dragging fly. So providing s-curves with accuracy is the key to dry fly fishing.
The Troutbitten Harvey Dry Leader is a different tool than the standard extruded leaders found in fly shops.
This is my favorite dry fly leader, with minor adaptations to George Harvey’s original design. The Harvey Dry Leader has enough power to turn over large flies. It also excels at remarkably subtle, delicate presentations with the smallest flies.
This leader finishes with 5X nylon tippet. Onstream adjustments of the terminal tippet to match the fly are needed and expected.
