Ryan Williams: Topwater Diver Bass "Twisted Leader"


Ryan Williams: Topwater Diver Bass "Twisted Leader"



1 year ago

All Maxima Ultragreen.

Topwater leader butt section designed to last an entire season, & taper designed to allow the sleekest of topwater divers to dive down enough to pop properly. Great taper for casting under docks as well.

"Double Surgeon Knot" is actually a double overhand knot.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Made from 1 piece of 15lb & 1 piece of 10lb. 20lb from fly line to "double overhand knot" is doubled over twice making it 80lb in reality. & from overhand knot to loop to loop connection, the 20lb is doubled over once, making it 40lb in reality.

Only knots are in the 10lb. 20lb is all twisted loop connections for maximum strength overtime. ("Shorb Loop" for lower loop connection.)

Twisted system inspired & taught to me by Wayman Lee, who learned through written instructions from Leo Gutierrez.
