OK, bear with me...
I just got some streamers (Mickey Fins, Little Brown, Rainbow and Brook Trout, among others). More importantly, they are from #10-#6. I've seen a couple of guides concerning tippet material sizes for different size hook. With this said, the largest tippet material size I have is 3X. Is this large enough to turn over a #6 streamer? I've seen some that stated yes and no.
If not, I have some Flouro in 6lb test (regular fishing line that I used to use as leader material for my light and ultra light spinning outfit). Can this be used?
AND, if so, I have furled leaders without the metal ring at the tippet end. I have read where using flouro can cut the mono (these are not thread-based leaders). Is this a problem?
So for hitting with so many questions, but I'm eager to try these streamers, and perhaps tie some of my own...in my own little twisted style.
Thanx a bunch. Da Ax.
It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?
