Interesting posts, I have always just used 10-14 inches of tippet between the fly and the nymph it seems to sink faster and trail a lot less to me than with say 16-18 inches however, I am still a rookie at nypmhing but that method has produced some nice fish for me. In faster water it seems if you have a longer stretch of tippet it tends to ride more on the surface taking longer to sink than with shorter length.......this is just from my personal observation and i am sure adding some split shot would fix this.

I started out once with say 18'' made several casts caught nothing, took it down to about 10-11 and started catching fish so I'd say change it up and see what happens, many people have told me in fly fishing don't stick with the same thing and expect it to work every time.
