Re: Leader and Tippett help
You need to try furled leaders. Joni makes the best, and she is on this board. You can get a 4-6wt leader, a 5-6 wt, 7-8wt, or 6-8wt. I always keep a spare in my vest too, for each size range. I agree about the tippet. Remember, if you are out in the heat, those leaders wrapped up (mono leader and tippet), that are in your jacket, will get weak over time. My vest is full of different sized tippets. After you have used up a spool, buy mono and wrap it on the empty spool. It is much cheaper that way.
As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
