    Hi All, just thought I would ask question to all you out there. When tying a dropper on tippet what size do you use if your tippet is x5. The reason I ask this is I have found using the same size gets tangled easily, so I have been using a lot thicker line for my dropper, tangle free. I've...

    Micro swivels

    Everyone has different ideas but I think a swivel no, plenty of videos on droppers on the net. From experience my dropper is made from thicker line and short, never had any problems with tangles. Saltman.

    The Cost of Fly Lines

    In My opinion you get what you pay for! There are cheaper options to suite everyone but if you have the pennies to spend why not ? There is a lot of development in fly rods, lines etc. If it makes you smile while tackling up and catching fish, why not get the best you can afford. Saltman.

    This subject in my opinion is try as many as you can afford, then stick with the ones you like. There are so many tippet's out there will confuse most anglers, bought so many over a few years, just fish with what works for you. Saltman.
