summer skating

hey all, now that winter steelhead season has wrapped up, I'm thinking about summer days on the river & skating a fly. I'm looking to hear what's your go to, line-tip( or no tip)-leader setup.

I fish a 16' mono leader, tapered to 10# Maxima, on a Scandi line. However, I am looking forward to fishing a longer Beulah Aero head of 52', I believe, so as to not have to strip as much line. I use 5-8 weight rods, depending on the anticipated size of the fish in a given river. Hope that helps.
