tippits and leaders

Posted 09-17-2014 at 11:17 AM by tennisgeorge

Why use a tippet at all? Why not just tie the leader to the line? For that matter, why also use backing?
Why not just tie the line to the reel then lleader to the line?

An Afternoon of Dry Fly Fishing on the Green

Posted 09-07-2014 at 06:48 PM by mcnerney

The weather looked great, so I decided to go out wade fishing this afternoon on the Green at one of the local public access points. I got to the river and found that I had the whole thing to myself, that is always a good feeling. I decided to use a Chernobyl ant with an ant as a trailer.
