I'm going to be fishing for smallmouth in the snake with a 8wt and Gallop Streamer Max long line. I'll be fishing clousers, baitfish streamers and crawdad patterners for the most part. The water is never really clear but not murky either. In some places I see people running just 4-6' of 10 or 15# flouro, like steelheading. Others suggest a 7.5' tapered leader of appropriate size. I'm gonna try both, but was wondering about other peoples preferences. I'm at about the same point with this as I was with the sliding indicator, just need a solid starting point. I'm used to tying my own leaders but I already figured out knots are bad last year.
