Default Re: leader/tippet length for trout

Auker, .....Man..... good question..... lol

I'd say the length of your leader should be contingent upon water clarity (more clear, more leader....) and spookiness of the fish there-in (more spooky, more leader....) Don't really know how to answer it any other way. Clear water with spooky fish is going to require a long leader. Ask me to put a number on a 'long leader' and I guess I'd say 10 + feet (as I consider a 9' leader to be 'standard'). But a 10' (or even 9') leader on a 5' rod (did I read that correctly?) seems like it would be a bear to cast.....
