We’ve written a lot of articles, about a lot of different topics related to fly fishing, since we first launched the Deneki Outdoors blog back in 2008. However, one of our most popular posts to date was an article we published back in 2014 comparing the differences between monofilament (nylon) and fluorocarbon leaders and tippet. Go figure!
We’re not overly surprised by this however.. Aside from your fly, under most circumstances, the tippet is the most fragile part of any setup, making choosing the right material extremely important!
Regardless, as most anglers are well aware, there are an overwhelming amount of leader and/or tippet material options available, all of which have advantages and disadvantages depending on the situation at hand.
Therefore, rather than tell you which leader/tippet material we use, we want to hear from you! When it comes to leader and/or tippet material, what do you prefer?
- Monofilament (nylon)?
- A particular brand?
We want to know! Help out your fellow readers by leaving us a comment below explaining your favorite leader/tippet material you use when chasing your favorite fish species!
