Default Re: Leader's/Tippet's for Gill's

I've never been too concerned about tippet size for 'gills, but I've been doing some experimenting this spring.

Purchased some 3X & 5X flouro tippet and have been fishing with the 3X, then switching to the 5X & fishing the same water and comparing results.
Not sure if it's the visibility of the tippet or the action (or lack of in the case of the "tail wagging the dog" with the use of smaller sized flies), but more good strikes (hookups) with the smaller tippet!
