Default Re: Leader Lengths

That's some seriously bad advice, TB. It's comically wrong. Others have given sound advice to the fellow who asked for help. If I wanted to consistently produce tailing loops and hence, wind knots- I'd use a level leader. I must admit to using .020-013- 2 or 3x 10' for leaders for river smallmouth because they will turn Deceivers and buggers and such over. You can get away with a level leader for elliptical and Belgian casts when nymphing, but that's a specialty thing and NOT what the OP asked. Generating speed for longer casts does not make a better caster.
