A: For anyone not aware, tippet rings are minute rings that have been polished smooth. A ring is attached to the end of the tapered portion of the leader. To this ring, you tie the tippet. This allows you to change tippets without disturbing the tapered leader. Unfortunately, they are too small for general saltwater fly-fishing, and I cannot find larger ones. I would imagine someone must make them, and if anyone locates them, I'd like to know for myself where to find them.
