I want to prepare some tarpon leaders for an upcoming Florida trip.
A few questions:
Is the shock tippet just heavy line, i.e. bite tippet?
Or does it have some stretch like 'shock gum' used for light line applications?
What I have on hand:
fly line/ 40lb. mono/ doubled 15-20lb. Fluoro class section/ 80lb. mono bite tippet.
We'll see if I can find/afford some heavy fluoro bite tip in 40-60lb.
Also, would 30lb. nylon coated steel (Steelon) work for small sharks and mackerel?
