    Size 18 and 20. Building these leaders is such a pain. I wonder if it's really worth it.

    I think it's important to cast with both hands. First, it gives both arms - shoulders, elbows - a chance to rest. Second, if you fish small streams a large part of the stream will now be open to you...

    If you're looking for both hiking and wading boots I'd go with a pair of Korkers. (Which is what I have.) You can change the soles.

    Falling in a river can be very dangerous even on a small stream. You could hit your head. That being said, I can't see why an angler wouldn't want the best footing possible, which I believe is felt...

    I'm reading Allen McGee's book about soft-hackled nymphs. He says that when fishing (for trout) he uses long tippets (same diameter) of 26" to 30". Just curious: how long are the tippets are you...
