    I want to start making my own leaders and need a little advice. Hopefully some of you guys can give me some info. Im gonna be ordering these online so Im not sure what all I need. Of course Im gonna need the leader, whats a good brand and how many lb test should I use? Then the sleeves. Ive noticed some of the leaders makers dont mention what size sleeves to use with them. How do I know which to get? Any other tips and info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    on the packages of sleeves it will tell you what lb test of mono and what size wire it fits. you will need several different sizes to make the leaders. the ones that fit that size line and some smaller ones to put on the beads. go to a craft store to buy your beads. you will get a very large bag for the same price of a few at a sporting goods place.
