    Braided line

    Has anyone used or made a furled leader made of braided line? If so do they float or at least will they with some kind of treatment (floatant).

    Thanks.

    I can never get those tinsel tag thingys right either. I think it has to do with cutting the tinsel with a long tapered point and wrapping in the right direction which I have no idea what that is.
