Default Re: Leaders/Tippet for WF8F

I personally usually use 8 lb test when fishing salmon in Michigan. I want to make sure tippet is the weakest link, so I have the ability to break a fish off if I want (i.e. if a fish is accidentally snagged). Of course, I'm not all that concerned about landing every fish, I most appreciate the first few minutes of fight out of a salmon, once they hunker down, it gets to be work to actually land them. Again, just personal preference, I've fished for salmon for a long time and know I can land fish if I really put my mind to it.
