Question on TIppet
Somehow I feel this is a stupid question, but here goes...
I have started tying my own leaders and have two questions:
1. It would be better to seal the knots with some adhesive (UV?), right? It would reduce the tendency to clog up with alga etc from the water...
2. If I tie a leader that ends with 20 inches of tippet, then should I just tie a fly directly onto the end and work my way down until it's short enough that I should tie on more, or tie on a new length of (identical) tippet the first time I use the leader?
Maybe tie a tippet ring on the end of my new leader then add about 20 inches of new tippet and then replace it when it gets too short?
I'm probably being overly anal about this...
Thanks for the fantastic site!
