Fly Fishing Addict
when I get my 8wt rod for this fall for steelies what is the best size leader and tippet you should use? also what size nymphs or flies are better for the steelhead? these fish are huge!!!
aha! I figured it would work. thanks for sharing. It doesn't have to be pretty as long as it works. So there is what looks like the simplest solution that works. From there you can make it as complicated as you need, once you gain experience and figure out what works for you.I would be one of those ppl..lol... I use 3' of 15# floro-mono, and then 9' of tippet and roll cast all day long! Its not pretty some times, but darn effective!
Under certain circumstances, yes. In 99% of other cases doing this will probably result in the fly not turning over, your leader twisting in wind knots, or piling up in a bird nest on the water. Also depends on skill level, I am sure. A skill level I do not have just yet.so you can just use regular fishing line to make the leader then just add some tippet to the regular line?
Hi Ledslinger, how are you? I never did make it down to FFF, but I haven´t forgotten. Something always seems to come up on the meeting daysid suggest keeping simple and just buy pre tapered leaders and accept it as a necessary part of doing business
