9wt Two things to consider:
Butt size (we're talking leader here!) should match the line tip, i.e. when leader & line are connected, put a curve in the junction & it should be a smooth curve rather than a sharp hinge. This aids smooth turnover of the leader.
Tippet size should match the fly size but also the weight of the rod, i.e. using a very heavy tippet with a light rod such as a 5wt puts the rod at risk of breakage unless you're very careful.
Tight lines!

Leader size

Does it matter what leader size you use with, say 5wt line? I know the size has to correspond with the fly you are using but is there a leader that is too big like a 0,1,2x?
