Default Re: Skunked yesterday and leaders

Ezamora,

I feel ya. Skimp in some places to get other things. Management of priorities. I'd probably do a tied leader, but I'd have to get alot better in my blood knots. Sometimes, I feel like I spend more time tying that at the stream's edge than I do fishing.

Frank,

As usual, you are absolutely correct. I wasn't for sure of the distance, so I just put out the 36" number for discussion sake. I have a 5X that has a couple of wind knots in it. I'm going to measure it and add what is necessary from tippet material. If it's too long, I'll taper it with other, thicker tippet material.

I'm learning.....and you guys are always a great help.
