RE:Trout Fever & Tippet Trouble
I would probably recommend starting at 5x for dry's. I know some would disagree but I am of the belief that you start with a heavier tippet and then go down if no strikes. I think you will be pleasantly surprised that the fish will still strike and you can get them released quickly. Also, some times we forget that if we are using fast action rods, this impacts how we hook fish and how well it can cushion a tippet......either way, I am very jealous of all that activity !!
