Hi Malcolm!

As I like to fish a very long leader on a floating line, I run into the same problem.

For what it's worth, I hook the fly two and sometimes three snake guides ABOVE the second stripping guide (i.e. last stripping guide going towards the tip of the rod), run the leader around the reel at the reel foot, and wind up tight while maintaining tension on the leader. Seems to work.

Tight lines! TB
