One of my goals for this summer is to "learn" to fish for bass. So far I've hooked up and landed a handfulf of largemouth. I've been working the weedlines with a Bugger or a Carey special on a sinktip. And while I feel like I'm gaining some knowledge I'm left with more questions I feel like the next step is to start using poppers. So here are my questions: 1) I have a 5wt and an 8wt (both with Weight forward floating lines) which is better suited to throwing a popper? 2) (This is really just an extension of question 1) What is the best leader set up (length/lb test). I'm assuming i need something fairly stout to turn over the poppers? Do you use a tapered leader or a level leader? I'm sure I'll have more questions later. But that should do me for now. Thanks in advance for your imput.
