ronk Posted August 7, 2009 Report Share Posted August 7, 2009 To prevent certain flies,primarily bassbugs, from twisting the tippet during casting I've begun to attach the tippet to the tapered butt section of the leader with a swivel.Works great and the size 14 swivel doesn't interfere with casting performance or the fly's action.It also greatly extends the life of the leader by not having to shorten it every time the tippet is replaced.It may also reduce the frequency of wind knots in the tippet.
