Well it appears that 2008 is turning into the year of the streamer for me. I am working on putting together a streamer setup. Currently i have a 5wt rod (want to get a 6 or 7 later this year) and a reel with a WF6F fly line and an Orvis 6wt sink tip attached to it.

Will that line/tip combo work or do i need to be working on some sort of shooting head system? I fish smaller streams so i am not sure i need a shooting head set up. My thinking is that i can attach the sink tip when i want to streamer or nymph fish and remove it to toss dry flies.

What leader system is recommended for streamers in the size 2-6 range?

I am waiting for Kelly Galloups Streamer Fishing video to show up from Netflix so i hope that it will answer some of these questions.
