Tippet is incredibly important, and next to flies, it is you primary tool in deceiving fish. Like your leaders, your going to go through quite a bit it. Beginners and seasoned anglers alike carry one or more spools at all times. There is far less engineering in tippet than there is lines and tapered leaders. It is quite simple, and does not need to break the bank. Rio's Powerflex is a strong affordable choice.
Tippet is the main line you will be using to attach flies to main line that goes to your reel. This line is intended to be cut to special lengths over and over without cutting leader line. I have selected this tippet in the line size that is appropriate for what you'll be fishing. However you will learn that a variety of tippet is favorable vs using just one, but this will definitely get you started.
Tippet is a must have. Once you snip a couple of flies off of your leader, the leader will begin to get too short, and you need to add tippet to maintain the proper line diameter for the fish.
I like to have a few sizes on hand to choose from so somewhere between 3x and 6x for you. If you just only get i would get 4x.
attaches to leader. 5x is thinner than 4x so will work on smaller flies as well as provide more delicate presentation.
