If you know anything about fly fishing, you’ll know that the leader forms the main connection between your fly line and your fly. The fly tippet, on the other hand, is designed for precision. RIO tippets are clear like leaders and very thin. You attach the tippet on the end of your leader to build a perfect fly fishing setup. Leaders come in different sizes, with labels like “3X” or “6X.” The higher the number, the thinner the line. In most cases, a 5X fly fishing tippet is a great all-around option.
