Typical Fly Usage For Leader Sizes

To calculate leader size a time used formula is to divide the fly size by 3, this gives you and approximate tippet size.

For example for a size 16 fly 16/3 = 5.33 so recommended leader diameter should be 5x to 6x

I have used these leaders in size 2x (7.7lbs). They have good turnover allow you to present the fly and tippet with no splash. I find that using these you can manage a longer leader,
