So, this will be my first year attempt at targeting some spring Chrome in the brule and north shore. I've been doing quite a bit of reading but would still like everyone to post their opinion.

I have an 8' 4" 8wt that i picked up for cheap.

What leader length and size tippet should i be using?
-9ft 2x (~10#)?

What are some flies that are a must to have tied in my arsenal? What sizes?

Any advise, post it!

Superior X legs pattern, Black stonefly pattern, Prince Nymphs. Most Steelhead are caught on basic nymph patterns.
