Default Fishing a mouse pattern, what sort of leader?

I fish at night with mouse flies all the time & I just use a few feet of butt section as my leader. I'm going to give a mouse a try next trip fishing during the day, and I figured I should get a bit more stealthy & wanted to know what you all use for leaders in the day hours? I was thinking that a butt section with a couple sections tied on with a 12lb section ending, similar to my King Salmon leader rigs. That should be tough enough to turn a pretty big brown & keep him out of the wood, no?

Any formulas would be great...
