No, it's actually very simple
sweetandsalt's explanation above is a good start for the original poster in this thread as that's the single best answer to his question about leaders and tippets
Mr. Turbine's method works also but only with a more 'course' style of fishing and I do that too, but I certainly would not recommend that to a serious trout fisherman. You need to use every advantage when casting to trout and that especially includes a good quality tapered leader. (personally, I construct my own from mono)
