I see... that would indicate that it's something tried and true by an expert trout angler, so that explains a lot. In the rough and tumble world of SWFF driving that energy wave as directly as possible is the key for big flies (sometimes over 10" long) whereas when "matching the hatch" the long leaders and fine tippets would benefit from a kicker in the leader. Well that explains it. I'll give it a try!
