Can I use a surgeons knots to tie up some simple leaders? Can I make leaders from tippett? Say for axample some 1x, 2x and 3x??? I don't fish technically just looking for some simple recipes for sizes 6-10 still water flies...have tried just mono but would like some turn over. I cast into every odd ball spot I can find for pan fish and I am tearing up way to many 3.50 tapered leaders...if there is an "easy" solution, I would like to try it. Most of the resources I have found dealing with leaders are in reference to trout fishing and hence, very technical. Thanks for any advice offered. Also, been using Orvis and Cortland tapered leaders with appropriate tippets...I think everything is mono but could be wrong.
