    For streamers I go 3 pieces for 9 foot leaders and 4 for my 15' two hander leaders.

    36" 36" 36" = 9'

    loop 54" 54" 36" 36" = 15'

    I use ANDE Tournament mono almost exclusively.

    I use a surgeons but I pull the ends through 3 times instead of the normal 2. I've had the line break at the knot multiple times with 2 times through, never happens with 3.

    I use blood knots. The only knot I trust for that.

    I use a butt of 30 or 40# and a tippet of 8 to 20# depending on cover. I use loop to loop at all connections most of the time and I make the loops with a double surgeons loop. If weeds are a problem hanging on the tippet/leader connection I will uses a blood knot connection.
