Put a Ring on It - Using Tippet Rings

Here's a video Tim Flagler produced on how tippet rings are used to attach tippet to the end of your leader. I've never used them, but some of the anglers I fish with do use them, and like them for certain applications. I know others that think they are not worth the effort, or they think using them is akin to spin fishing. Personally I don't think they are a good or bad thing, they are just another way to rig your leader/tippet, and they may work for some and not for others. I do plan to try them at some point for no other reason than to form a first hand opinion on them.

What a great time to post this Matt.
I just purchased a couple of furled leaders that have those rings.
The use of that doll was brilliant.

Love them for nymphing leaders and wet flies, not so much for dries, they tend to sink the leader a bit too much. Like most things, there's a time and place
