Default Re: Tippett rings

Riptide....I used to tie small perfection loops into the end of my tapered leader....and the end of my tippet as you describe. So your point as to being able to save your leader that way is valid also....However I just found for me personally....and for expediency on the stream....i prefer just tying directly onto a ring. I also believe a micro ring has a smoother transition and is more seemless than my old loop to loop connection -you can bareley see the rings. In terms of cost I just bought 20 rings for $8.95 from J Stockard so compared to all my other fly fishing expenses I can live with that. 20 should be a lifetime supply my problem is when i ever i drop one I can never find it again LOL
