Hey Dom and Austin,
So assuming you are using a mono rig, what size tippet are you using for streamers? And I would assume it is one straight length of tippet from the sighter correct? I am guessing at least 3X?
Hi Dave. Thanks for your question. But there are just too many variables to really give you much of an answer. We mentioned in the podcast that we fish streamers on multiple different rigs, with a Mono Rig a lot as my preference for all the presentation options. In that case, tippet size depends on streamer size, fish size and presentation needs. Range is from 1x to 4x.
Hope that helps.
Thanks Dom, appreciate it.
Hay Dom ,do you ever fish in Colorado area. If so where.
