Default Leader Formulas

My question is this, where would i find a good formula to tie my own leaders. I have and 8' 5 weight rod and i will be fishing with alot of wet flies and nymphs. My next question is this...what length leaders will i use for what....nymphs and dry flies..I am told that you will use a longer leader for dry flies....what are your thoughts on this? Thanks Again guys!!

The Global Fly Fisher has some extensive info on leader tying along with a LeaderCalc download as well as PDF files. Here is a link to the article, here you'll see a link to the LeaderCalc down load. On the right of the page at the top of the article index is a link to the PDF files.
