These questions have to do with leaders. I read the article on leaders that was posted on this forum but i found it was hard to understand. For my leaders as of now i have just used straight 4# maxima and have found it to be sufficient. I want know how tapered leaders help and do i need all those formulas to make my own or can i simply have a 3 ft section of 20# to a 5ft section of 10# and then however long of a tippet necessary?? I guess im also wondering what you guys use as leaders??
