your thread draws the dust to it because of static , your air is to dry you need to do away with sttic on the thread , try a vaporizer in your room or draw the thread through a spounge that is a little damp , I have never used static cling spray but it might work , I am just a newbe but that is how I do it, Bill

it might not be the correct way but a 3, 2, 1 plus your tip will work out very nice, it has for me 3 = heavy , 2 = med., 1 = lightest , than a tippit, it is great for what you want, you can make all parts of the leader, so you take them apart an replace them om the river you just replace what broke off think about it
