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.
