Leaders and tippet are expendable, but are vital pieces of equipment for any fly fisher. Without a solid leader and tippet system, you can run the risk of spooking fish or breaking them off. An appropriate leader means better accuracy, turnover, and presentation. The correct tippet selection ensures it will sink (or float) and be nearly invisible to the fish. Tippet selection can be the difference between perfect and imperfect presentations.
