Usually you will have about yards of backing on a reel. Line — Your fly line makes casting your fly possible. Usually brightly colored, it is easy to see on the water. For most types of fly fishing you will use a floating line. Each line has specific characteristics. Most fly lines you will use will be a weight forward.
This makes casting easy. Each line is designed by a weight system. This weight system is used with rods also. You match a line weight with a rod weight. Lines are 90 to feet long. Leader — A leader consists of clear plastic material that attaches to your fly line on one end and the fly on the other.

The leader will be tapered, being thick at the butt section that connects to the fly line, and thin at the fly. This allows the leader to be strong. It also makes it difficult for fish to see. Tippet — This is used to add length to your leader.

Over the course of a day you will have to change flies to match what the fish are eating. You will lose flies in trees and fish. This will eventually make your leader too short for fishing. Tippet is then tied to the leader to add length. It is also used to keep the leader tapered down to a small size to hide it from the fish. Both tippets and leaders come in different lengths and diameters based on strength, for example, 3x diameter tippet is usually 8 pound strength.

I just wish they were catching whitefish instead of trout. This week we headed for the Upper South fork for a float trip and some streamer fishing. For many fishermen catching the stonefly hatch is like the search for the Holy Grail.
