I am going to say more like at least 15lb at the fly line. Then work your way down. Like maybe: 20" of 15lb, 16" of 12lb, 12" of 10lb., 12" of 8lb., and 24" of 6lb. Just an idea.

Hi mey123,

Before you start tyeing you own leaders you need to learn a little more about it. Take a look at this site for some good information on tyeing your own leaders.
