Default Re: Beginner question about leaders/tippets

Hi & welcome,I used to tie all my own Leaders to many different system,formulas then I went onto Tapered Leaders which come in all sizes which I still use with my lighter Rods,now on #5,#6,#7 etc Rods I use either a Shock Leader with a Tipit or a Furled Leader also with a Tipit.
I found The ones I tied,even though they were beaut to Cast became a real pain as they were real sus to knots & tangles.
Give Furled Leaders a try,they are really good even though are not for all applications,especially if you are new to FlyFishing.
Brian.
