This is the top-water version of guide Tom Rowland' s "Lefty Kreh's 50% Rule Top-Water Bonefish Leader". Watch the video below as Tom describes the formula in detail.
In this particular video (below) Tom is targeting top-water Bonefish (hence the mono throughout), but this also works for trout, bass, carp, etc. Just match the LBs to the species. The key take-away here is the 50% rule people!
