Hire a guide and use his stuff. Usually very adequate. Why clutter up the overhead?

cottage1,

For tarpon on spinning gear I would use no less that 20 lb test. If your reel does not have the capacity for 250+ yards of 20lb used braided backing (PowerPro spiderwire & etc) with a mono topshot. As for leader, tie right to the mono for tarpon. For bonefish scale it down to 8-12lb test.


it takes some green to live the dream...
