On clear, calm water where fish are wary, use the smallest diameter tippet possible (e.g., with a #16 fly, use a 6X tippet rather than a 4X or 5X).

On turbulent or discolored water, use the largest tippet diameter.

With a weighted or bulky fly (like a bass bug), consider using one tippet size larger than what would be called for.
