Fly Fishing Line, Leaders and Tippets

Within your fly fishing equipment, you have a fly fishing rod , a fly reel, a fly line and flies . A fishing leader and tippet is what connects the almost invisible transition from the fly line to the fly. The objective of the leader and the tippet is to connect your thick, coloured fly line used for casting to the flies that you are trying to present to the fish, with a material that wont scare them away. It also completes the energy built up in the fly line through the casting stroke through the line and down to the fly, so that your line rolls over and straightens itself out if a straight line.
A fly fishing leader is typically the transparent piece of material that is connected to your fishing line. This tends to be quite a heavily weighted piece of material that eventually tapers down in thickness to where it meets the point of where the tippet attaches.
However, the fly fishing tippet is very lightweight and will be attached to both the end of the leader but also the fly as well. You would typically change your tippet size depending on the type of the fishing you are doing and the specific fishing circumstances.
