I have been looking into this because it does make more sense to me than continuing to purchase manufactured tapered tippets. I have already found a lot of information regarding this subject matter in my search and I copy/paste url's for references I identify to retain them. It is always nice to have a library. I am posting this here because I could find no better forum for this topic but please relocate my thread if it is deemed best. Second, this is an excellent forum and I want to solicit the experienced opinion of members. The majority of fishing I have been doing is for trout. I recently added steelhead and coho to this. King salmon begin next fall.
