I want to get some new 'extension' leaders to zip on and off my existing ones.  I'm thinking I can make these but wondered what weight canvas I should buy.  Also, I haven't found any canvas that is 12ft wide so is it OK to use the length or selvedge parallel to the rollers?  Many thanks for any advice you can offer.  Chris

I also made mini-leaders using duck cloth (canvas type).  My mini-leaders are around 12 to 18 inches long and 10ft wide (10ft table).  I did the pocket for my red snappers and marked the center so I would always know where it is on the leaders.  This gives me the option to use my snappers or zippers.  I have not had any problems with making the minis using the duck cloth as you said "straight of grain/parallel to the selvage".   I posted a pic a long time ago but couldn't find it.
