Default Re: Tippet Yes or No Help!

On a brand new leader I tie my first few flies right to the tapered leader. From there I start to tie on lengths of desired weight tippet to get to a bit more length than the leader had to begin with. When I get to a ratio of 50/50 or so I start running bigger tippet to smaller tippet. Not long after that I am changing leaders.

I always kept a few spools of tippet of various sizes and a few spare tapered leaders in my sling pack. Also make sure you have a line straightener so you don't have curls and you can get your line to lay out right.
