Leader Question?

I like to tye my own leaders. I just ordered a new Rio Grand (camo color) for my 6 weight. Does anybody have a suggestions on the break down of material to construct a leader for a 6 weight. What size should the butt section be? Can't wait to get this line. The one I have been using was given to me when I bought the reel and I believe it is a Wolf 4/5. I wonder how much more distance I will be able to get with the proper line.

Easy!

Go to the website

www.globalflyfisher.com

and check out leadercalc.

It gives you "everything you wanted to know about leaders", and will even customize a leader for you.
