GRHE to my knowledge stands for gold ribbed hare's ear, a nymph, and my favorite for the 'Hooch. I usually buy the tapered "knotless" leaders that are sold everywhere. Flyguy recommends the Orvis brand because they are custom made and cost about $4 each. There are a bunch that can be had for less than $2. I use the 9' 5X, which is usually good for a days worth of fishing. As a rule anything shorter than 7' reduces strikes.
