    The simple solution is to use a tippet/leader gauge and you...

    Well I don't know if it is the best but it certainly is my favorite. That would be the Galvin Open Back. Wonderful drag, well built and perfect size.

    Re: how to know when to add tippet?

    Re: Alaska August 2017 Coho trip.....
