Five Mistakes People Make With Leaders and Tippets

In his most recent podcast, Tom Rosenbauer lists the five most common mistakes anglers make with leaders and tippets. “Number one, not testing knots. I make this mistake all the time. I don’t know how many times I’ve tied on a fly quickly, I’ve made a cast, a fish has struck, and I come back with a pigtail on the end of my line because I didn’t pass the end of the clinch not through the loop, or I didn’t tighten it properly or didn’t test it.”
