Line Setups

I'm back. I got some great information from my last post i just still have a couple of questions. My rod has a #5-6 Line weight. Now when i'm picking out a line i know i want it to be a #5 or #6. But what else do i need what kind of leaders and or tippet... and what does a tippet do. What else would i need to complete my setup? I'm going to be fishing for stream trout in northern Iowa. SO what kind of leader do i want with what kind of taper. I'm going to by using dry flys.
Thanks a lot for your help i'm still learning the termenolgy and you guys are helping a lot.
