Why do I need shockleader?

It is for two
reasons. One saftey! stops your lead flying off and hurting someone near
by. Two stops you loosing all your gear "Snap off" whilst casting.

Attaching
Shockleader to my mainline?


Use a Albright Knot!

The
Albright Knot is most commonly used for joining monofilament lines of
unequal diameters, for creating shock leaders and when a Bimini Twist is
tied in the end of the lighter casting line. It is also used for
connecting monofilament to wire.

Heres How to!

1. Bend a
loop in the tag end of the heavier monofilament and hold between thumb
and forefinger of left hand. Insert the tag end of the lighter
monofilament through loop from the top.
Pull the standing part of the
heavy mono and the standing part of the light mono.

2. Slip tag
end of lighter monofilament under your left thumb and pinch it tightly
against the heavier strands of the loop. Wrap the first turn of the
lighter monofilament over itself and continue wrapping toward the round
end of the loop. Take at least 12 turns with the lighter monofilament
around all three strands

3. Insert tag end of the lighter
monofilament through end of the loop from the bottom. It must enter and
leave the loop on the same side.

4. With the thumb and forefinger
of the left hand, slide the coils of the lighter monofilament toward
the end of the loop, stop 1/8" from end of loop. Using pliers, pull the
tag end of the lighter mono tight to keep the coils from the slipping
off the loop.

5. With your left hand still holding the heavier
mono, pull on the standing part of the lighter mono. Pull the tag end of
the lighter mono and the standing part a second time.

6. Trim
both tag ends.


How much leader to put on my spool?

The
best way to measure the required length of leader for casting over
cleanish ground is to tie the main line to the leader material outside
the top tip ring, wind on the leader counting it around the reel spool 8
times.
