Re: Leader Lengths
I'm a little unordinary as I fish a lot of stillwater, but I do dabble on moving water as well. Most of the time I just use the standard old nine foot 4x tapered leader on both lakes and streams/rivers. But when I am on high lakes in the mountains, I quite often loop on a twelve foot 4x leader to a floating line in order to enhance the sink rate of weighted scuds and wooly worms. I've found when I want to go deep quickly without a sinking line, the extra length on my leader works well.
