When I fish with a fly rod for bluegills, I use a 6# memo or fluoro leader. What length would you recommend for my leaders?

The length of the leader can effect how gently the fly lays out.Not always a terribly important point with bluegill...But it's good practice.
Here's a link to several sites that contain Lefty Kreh's leader formula
Google search "Lefty Kreh leader formula"
