Okay, first off this is a great forum, as a old new guy who put the cart before the horse and bought a switch rod and a couple of reels several years ago but never put them to use I'm ready to give this a go. As I said several years ago I thought this is cool so I bought a echo fiberglass 7 wt switch rod. I also bought two echo reels. One reel has a airflo skagit and the other has a rio chucker. Some were down the line I bought some t-8 rio leaders also. Now I can't find the t-8 leaders but I remember they were to light for what I was using at the time. as in I could see my egg sucking leechs as I fished them high in the water column. Now I going to learn this method of fishing, but sink tips are even more confusing than 8 or 9 years ago. From what I gather the Imow tips are for use with intermediate sinking lines? I can't seem to find just the old 10 ft. level t leaders, which is what I think I want, but maybe I don't now what want. A little help here is appreciated. I think this and alot of the casting videos and jargon that along with them turn a lot guys off. No consistincey. Please forgive my spelling . Mike.
