    Default CHOOSING TIPPET - Bob Boese - Nov 4, 2013

    CHOOSING TIPPET
    Many fly fishermen consider measuring their leader/tippet critically important. Formulas are everywhere to be found, from complicated line tapering for long trout leader/tippet to simple straight line for bass. Tippets are a curious product and when sold as tippet are expensive. The least costly tippet monofilament (Cabela's Climax) is approximately 10?/yd. while the most expensive non-tippet monofilament fishing line (Spiderwire Mono) is approximately 2? per yard. Which raises the question, is it worth the difference?

    Bob ~ nice explanation of a confusing subject. On price of material. EBay, Japanese Flourocarbon, 55yrds@ $7.68 all sizes or like you said Berkley Vanish Flourocarbon 4lb., 110yrds for aprox. $10.00. Lots of ways to skin a tippet and as I always say " The fish don't care" ~ JAK
