    Is here anybody who use this shooting head? Do you use tapered polyleaders or only mono tippet with this head? Many thanks.
  2. Methods and Tactics

Actually are there full t tips tapered i know the ones with a floating section are but now i think about it are the full length Tungsten mow tips tapered ? In your opinion would a tapered T...

    For a while now, been using various tapered leaders in my Salmon fishing.The bain perhaps in their use is how one fix's the leader to the fly line.The knot formed in making a loop is always a concern,so is the damage that can be inflicted by the nylon loop on pre formed fly line loops. Now seen...

    With the low, clear water conditions this year, I was wondering if I would have been better using a Riverge Tapered Flourocarbon leader (for its underwater invisibility), as opposed to a standard polyleader? Does anybody sense they have spooked less fish using this method? Would this be...

    Realise there are a fair few posts on people's preferred configuration of polyleaders and tippets, so apologies for raising this topic again, but I am still unsure whether I should use a polyleader together with a tapered leader or should I just attach a straight piece of tippet material to the...

    Guys, Does anyone make poly-leaders with loops each end? I know Michael Evans does or did but his are/were not tapered. I have one, which looks like a typical Rio 2.6" sinking 10' poly but it has loops each end and is nicely tapered. I have no idea where I got it? (Yes, I know about tippet rings...
