    I've got a couple of them in my tackle bag, handy when switching fly lines to cut the cast off and save for the next switch back.

    Sea fishing ones are what i use but i think there's a smaller size kicking around that would be more handy for size 14 hooks than 2/0.

    Trick i use is to cut 2 or 3 radial slots with a sharp knife so the line end can be pulled into the slot and not left dangling.

    These are superb, don't try to get a cheaper version, most are useless.

    I'm sure you have been to an optician and know that rigs and leaders are the same thing so you don't need any help on that front.

    I set my rods up at home with "leaders" tied on and a fly on the point - you can change when you start fishing. Just break the rod in half and use "coarse" fisherman's velcro rod ties to hold them together.

    As has been said make rigs up at home and put them on winders. You can buy a little gadget that helps get the line through the eye of the hook, little wire thing that I am sure someone else can better describe.

    And no big deal if you take a magnifying glass along.

    Just enjoy the fishing even if it does takes a little longer to get going
