Tapered Leaders for 15’ Spey rod
So, I’m just loving tapered leaders and small flies from my 15’ rod! I was up on the St Mary’s 2 new that ago, I was the only one there! And I saw Atlantic’s feeding like trout on a massive caddis hatch!! So spectacular!!!
Anyway, curious if anyone has messed with tapered leaders for skating dries and what formula helps turnover the best? As a note, I have 50lb test down to 12lb. I’m just not sure what would be a a good length for leader and how much of the big stuff vs lighter tippet.
My thoughts were that the 50lb to 20lb would make up the majority of the leader, and the 15lb-12lb would just be like 3 ft? I’m trying to keep the leader the length of the rod I think??
Anyway, any help much appreciated......thanks
