Ep 81: All Things Leaders, with Barry deCocq

Barry deCocq is the owner of American Fork Anglers and specializes in custom leaders, including Euro, tightline, and standard. Barry believes the leader is the most important part of a fly fishing setup and has the experience to back it up. In this episode, we discuss Euro nymphing, the differences between custom and storebought leaders, how different styles of leaders vary, what goes into custom tying them, and more. At the end, we also discuss how social media has been detrimental to hidden gem fishing spots.
