My God! An honest Dentist? "This is not going to hurt a bit."

Wow, Malcom you dropped the ball on this one. "Your" fish could have been any size, type, light tippets, etc. and you 'opt' for honesty.

We must speak... in private .... this is a fly fishing board .... there are certain expectations... even better if they can't be verified. :hehe:

not sure if you've done the cutting yet, but the cut point can be determined by the weight of tips you expect to use. FIguring that the floater portion will easily turnover tips of equivalent or lesser weight, I just cut at the equivalent diameter of a floater. For example, when desiring to toss 8 weight tips on a tapered floating line, I'll cut the floater at a diameter equivalent to a floater 8 weight. THis provides enough ooomph to turn over the 8 weight tips.
