Shock Leader

Post by davcon4005 »

I have posted before re: shock leader, neglected to ask,,,, How much line should be used to make sure leader is safe? can I just use 55-60lb line and not bother with a leader?
I think I am only capable of light casting ie: 2,3,4 possibly 5lb weight.

All answers are much appreciated..

Regards
Dave

Should line be checked/changed weekly or monthly?
