Default Re: Leaders/Tippet for WF8F

I have to think you have to deal with each piece of water and it's conditions separately. I fish the Erie Tribs and in OCT when it is low and clear I was using 4# floro using is single egg to get bit and taking a long time to get them in. In late Dec I was using 12# seguar and bring them in pretty quick. The tribs steelhead I think average around 7# or so. That all being said I have found in my short time fly fishing for steelhead that I had to adapt to the coditions. I do fish the heaviest tipet I can for conditions.
