got myself a rod and reel ready for my hols down in newquay and loaded the reel with 15lb mainline and a tapered shock leader,my probably most stupid question is how much leader should actually be on the reel when ready to cast,as i,m a freshwater chap,when i fish normally,a shock leader would go around the spool about 1/2 a dozen times,but this tapered thing if i were to cut it back,{15to45lb bs}would reduce the strength or dont it really need cutting back?its actually 13 metres.also when ledgering,if fiishing paternoster style,do you tie the ledger to the end of the shockleader,if so that would mean tieing hook lengths onto the shock leader as well, or is it just best to fish a running ledger,thanks in advance chaps.
Which newquay? If its Cornwall then your more than welcome to give me a shout
