Hi guys, I have started fly fishing in the UK and I'm getting confused about a few things ! One confusion is about leaders and tippets, are these one and the same ?
When fishing am I correct in saying that the reel has a backing, which is tied to the line, which in turn is tied to the leader/tippet, then fly ?

many thanks, OGON
