Hi,

A tippet is the leader line between the fly and the yellow fly line.
Choosing a tippet is a bit of a trade off - thick tippets (1X-3X) are stronger but more visible (less strikes).

The weights are used to nymph fish (when the fish are not rising). Use heavier (BB) weight to get your fly deeper.
