Default Re: straight leaders for nymphing?

Drag may be splitting hairs but if I were an Indi fisherman I would run 8 pound fluorocarbon to the bobber and loop to loop a tippet from there to the fly. This would make things simple in the event of a snag. The leader loop will break but you will still have the loop on the heavier line. You could be carrying leader sections with pre tied loops in different lengths (for depth control) and replacing a tippet would be fairly painless...............
