I would love to hear everyone's opinions and preferences on fishing multi fly set ups- what is your preferred method to rig multiple flies? I have been going back and forth with various set ups for years.
My state allows two flies max. Here are the two methods I currently use.
1) Leave a 6" tag on the tippet to leader blood knot and tying the first fly onto the tag with the bottom fly 18" away on the end of the tippet. The upper fly swims more naturally but because the tag is short I usually can't change the upper fly without cutting a new piece of 24" tippet, tying a new blood knot and leaving a new 6" tag.
2) Running the lower tippet through the eye of the upper fly. The upper fly doesn't swim as well because it's turned 90 degrees to the tippet but it's easier to change if necessary.
I know a lot of people like tying the tippet to the hook bend but I have always struggled with that technique. I change flies fairly often so I'm hoping someone out there might have some advise.
In full disclosure I haven't tried tippet rings yet-
