Default Re: Beginner question about leaders/tippets

Wow, lots of good advice here! Thank you much!

So, diameter >> pound test rating. That's easy enough, I'll have to get used to that. I may just buy a stack of tapered leaders instead of tying my own. All I need is one wrap "crossed" on a blood knot and my entire leader is useless. It looks like with the premade jobs I can just "surgeon" a piece of tippet when the premade one wears out and keep going. Could I tie a perfection loop in the end of the tapered leader and loop-loop a piece of tippet for easy changing?

Thanks again folks! What a great forum.
