Just got my first switch rod ,and I'm wondering what size leader to use with my mow tips .Do I use a standard tapered leader or do I just attach tippet to the tip?

Default Re: Leaders

You can do it many different ways, but keep it simple. I'm assuming you're working with a 10foot polyleader. Tie a perfection loop on the end of your poly and then tie a perfection loop on 4 -5 foot of tippet, then rig up your fly. You can and may want to add a 1 foot section of heavier tippet at the end of your poly as a transition, then do your 4 foot of of smaller diameter on the business end.
