So I probably should have checked & notified prior to posting.

Yes, I have a tapered leader 9ft 4X 6.4 lb.

Add tippet or just throw on a new leader?

If tippet is the way to go I will take the average length re: Pcrays #'s (right in the middle)

@HA - Thanks for the invite, would love to head up there this weekend but we are out of dodge this weekend (life and it's responsibilities). Hopefully I'll get up there next month or so

No problem. I'm heading out of Dodge myself on Friday, but just for a day trip out to Central PA.

I have a leader for you that will keep things simple until you can get your knots down pat. It's a 7 1/2' leader, and I tied a tippet ring to the end. All you have to do is tie 2' of 4X to the ring for nymphing, or 2' of 5X or 6X for dries. The only knot needed is the clinch knot - same one you use to tie on a fly.

Thanks HA - Next time we all jam on the LL I will bring my stuff up and get a crash course on the topics in this thread. Just placed a small order with Orvis and ordered the leader/tippets that jstine recommended. Think I will have a better understanding with the visuals of this discussion


//The vets on this board are extremely generous in so many ways and it is much appreciated. Hope to be able to pay it forward one day

For the record: there's no such thing as a small order with Orvis.
