Default Re: Leader requirements?

Hey- just signed on, and just starting out.

Last weekend, tinkering with fly gear, I simply nail notted 4' of 6# flourocarbon line to the end of the fly line for roll casting a popper. Worked like a charm for hauling in bluegill...but of course I wasn't trying to present a fly or even execute a cast. My roll cast goes farther than my overhead cast at this point. (That ought to clue you in on how much to listen to me)

When overhead casting, the 6# tied on did not behave well at all...good demonstration of "how not to rig it."
