Re: Skunked yesterday and leaders
If you measure a tippet on a new 9' leader you will find that the tippet is only about 20" long. When you leader gets 18' to 22" gone it is time to tie on a new tippet. Or better yet, put a loop at the 20" mark and loop your tippets on. To really know where you tippet stops you need to measure it. For sure it is not 36" long.
