Re: Mono vs. tippet size

Vapor I know you think the Tippet is a scam and I am ok with that. If where you are fishing go for the cheaper line. I use about 6' of spider wire before I tie on my tippet for a nymphing rig.

Re: Got my first setup today...

The rig looks great.

Re: Hardy Streamflex Vs the new XF2 what are the differences?
