Yeah, 4' or less. The fly can also be slightly weighted but not enough that jerking the fly could result in snagging. I think I'll opt for the 8 lb tippet. Maybe I'll even drop down to 6 lb- not sure on that. I have been told that salmon are not line shy so go ahead and use a 10 lb tippet. What about steelhead? If you use a smaller diameter tippet do you get more strikes? On the flies, I know bright colored egg patterns are recommended but what about plain or dark patterns? Would an olive woolly bugger be a standard choice or is it a once in a while thing?
