    You can buy a leader retriever at some shops or online. Or make your own.

    take a new bit of film, cut it a bit narrower, then lick the emulsion side. stick it into the felt and rotate the the film spool a bit. then pull it out and you have got your leader back.

    Yeah, buy a leader puller. They're a couple of bucks on evilBay.

    If you find one from one of the discount joints that ships boatloads of junk in one box and buy a handful of knick knacks that you need then the shipping won't be more than the merchandise.

    Or, as Newt says, use a piece of film. But I always found that harder than it ought to be. The plastic dohicky works great.

    I managed to get the leader out. I ended up opening the roll, so I hope that the film is okay.

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    haha, I'm such a cheapskate these days.
    After shooting 120 for awhile I am doing more 135 these days and it takes forever to finish a 36ex roll.

    I have deep enough pockes and your post is cavelier and wastefull in the least. This is an issue that happens now and again and the methods for retrieval of the leader are valid and usefull.

    Thanks.
