Hey everyone. Kind of been hanging out reading everyones posts for a while. A lot of really great information from you. So first off, hello!
A fishing buddy of mine and I were in a conversation last week about fishing line vs tippet. When I say fishing line I'm basically referring to Stren, Berkley, etc. you would put on your spinning reel.
I don't spin fish really anymore (not that there is anything wrong with it
) but I do have a bunch of spools of various mono and flouro line. Does anyone out there know what/if any the difference would be in constructing leaders from standard fishing line as opposed to 1X,2X...5X tippet material or is it the same thing?
I'm thinking I will more then likely stick to my store bought leaders for nymphing and dries, but was going to get out and toss the streamers and thought any old fishing line would probably do provided I put a little taper to it.
