If the fish in Destin a really pressured I am sure you could size it down to something in the 13-15 lb range for the tippet.

If you are set on using flouro....you may consider using a regular mono leader and use a flouro tippet.

Thanks John.....but I have to ask, why no Flouro? I use it almost exclusively on my light tackle spinning reels and have recently just started using Flouro leaders for fly....I really like it for clear water apps, and mostly use a palomar terminal not, so not strength hasn't been an issue....
Just curious?
