This is my set up so far

How am I doing so far and what goes on the end of the Mow Tip?

Your setup looks pretty good. I fish the bow regularly on the swing I like a 5wt switch or Spey personally. I think the 5/5 mow tip is your best bet with 5ft if 8-10 lbs mono or floro to the fly.

As far as fishing the traditional swing works well but don’t be afraid to strip the fly. And always let your fly hang at the end of your swing. You will be amazed at what can happen.

Think about wet flies.

I have a 5/5 T8 also.
I have a Loomis Metolius 5/6 also.
I fish wet flies and nymphs on the swing almost always.
I live in Black Diamond.
Would you be interested in teaching me to cast properly?
Will compensate you that is for sure.
