Re: Turning Over Popper Issues
I use Orvis Mirage 7.5 foot, 1X or 0X tapered leaders with my 6wt setup, and poppers of all sorts turn over just fine. Buy 'em cheap on fleabay.
I totally agree with Frank about that 50 foot mark.
P.S. I like to tie leaders, so will be tying up some of RipTide's formula when this stupid shoulder gets better. I use Maxima (the brown stuff) for all my salmon fishing; might try it for bass, too. Maybe use the greenish stuff for the tippet?
