Tippet is an integral component of flyfishing. Tippet connects the flyline leader to the fly. Without the right tippet the fisherman will be less successful and lose many fish. Tippet comes in several strengths and sizes. The size of tippet is expressed in X sizes, with 6x and 7x being the thinnest and 1x and 2x being the strongest. The choice of which tippet to use involves a tradeoff; finer tippets are less visible to the fish, resulting in more strikes, but are more easily broken.
