Default Re: Leader and Tippett help

If you have the money and want to stock up on tippet, fine. That selection should cover almost anything you fish for on #3 & #6 rods.

That list looks like a lot of leaders, however. You don't have to match leader to tippet; in fact, I tie on tippet a size or two smaller. The leader should last a trip or two (more as you gain experience), so one per rod and a spare for the vest should do.

Spend money on experience instead of gear in the beginning. When you learn what you really like, you can buy stuff that'll last. I still fish with my 11 year old Diamondback rod- can't find anything better!

Hope this helps,
CAB

p.s. I hope I didn't sound patronising there.
