Re: Tapered leader or Tippet material
bigdon90: +1 for what poke em stated. You should try casting out in the backyard. First attach a 9 ft tapered leader to your fly line and on the far end attach a small piece of yarn. Then make serveral casts and pay attention to how the leader turns the yarn over. Now take that the leader off and attach the same length of tippet, you should notice quite a difference in how the yarn turns over.
