Default 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.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
