Re: Info for a NEWBY
I personally use a double surgeons loop in the butt. It is easy to tie as well. I am a firm believer in KISS.
A good leader for Bass is 30 or 40# butt section of about 4'and a tippet of 15 or 20#. EZ and cheap and it works. A 6wt is kinda inbetween. On a 5wt I would use 30# butt and on a 7wt I would use 40# for the butt.
