    Shallow is the main thing, no point casting a weight out only to have to whistle downtide before it hits the floor.

    I use braid, but with a mono leader.

    15lb mono straight through to a simple slider, no complicated coat hangers or ornaments on the end. Jon

    I see less people using leaders now, the knot causes such a nuisance if there is any weed, and we get a lot in my area. If you are casting from a boat and you are half expecting to crack off you don't want the lead coming back at you!!!!
