Re: One more time: How do you hide a tippet?
First off, your post tells me that you've got vision that many of us will be jealous of.
The visibility of the tippet on super calm water is a tricky situation. Fluorocarbon should sink enough to become invisible, but then you've got your tippet pulling your fly down. The other option is a tippet that floats, but is more visible.
Then there's the fact that you can make flouro float if you get enough skin oil on it to function as a floatant, or enough saliva to get mono to sink.
My advice- fish those small dries on water that is moving enough to hide the tippet, or fish nymphs and emergers when its so calm the leader can't be hidden.
