Default Re: Tapered leader or Tippet material

Bigdon...you've gotten good info and Poke em got right to the heart of it.

For instance...Nymphing pretty deep for steelhead I'll run straight 8.5 lb fluoro to my top fly.

But...For trout, if I want tippet size like 4 lb or less, I'll use the appropriate tapered leader to turn over the flies and attach tippet.

These are just the numbers I think about...and they reflect how I use what Poke em said...-Mike
