Default Re: Tippet Length / Where to Begin?

Somewhere over the years I picked up this general rule. It can give you a place to start. If your tippet straightens out, stops in the air and falls to the surface, or springs back towards you-your tippet is too short. If your leader/tippet fails to turn over or falls into a pile, it's too long. When it lays out in a series of gentle S curves, its just right, of course, subject to the speed and roughness of the water.
