Do you use fluorocarbon for?
Do use fluorocarbon tippet for dry flies? If so you might want to rethink your choice of material. Why? Well fluorocarbon material will sink thereby causing your fly to sink as well. Nylon monofilament is the smarter choice of material when fishing dry flies.

I do use Flouro for everything. Agreed that it will sink. But it allowes me to get away with 6X on 20" + fish because of its strength. 6X isn't going to sink a size 18.
But, that is my choice.
