Use lighter tippet for the tag with the shot. It will break and the tags for the flies won't. I use this setup for multi fly rigs. I usually tie in two droppers using the bottom tag of a triple surgeon's as the tag to tie my fly to. The nice part about it is that you can change either fly without having to redo the whole rig.
