Default Re: Leader and Tippett help

That's a wider variety than I carry. I am a minimalist though.

For my #3 and #5, I use the same leaders for the most part. 9 footers in 2X, 4X and 6X.

4X and 6X on the #3 and all three on the #5. Generally I only use the 6x of tiny stuff and a few rare other occasions.

On my #7, I use the butts of my old trout leaders and 10LB test tippet. These are for still water LMB & Co. When after River run smallies and nocturnal browns, I go with the 9' 2X mostly.

For me, I have all the bases covered well enough and don't have to carry as many tippet spools.
