Approximately which lb test of monofilament is appropriate for a #4 octopus hook? I am trying to pair my line size to my hook size. Thank you Italo.Posted on July 21st, 2020
Hi Angler, it’s good to use the right size leader depending on the size of the hook you are using. A 10-20″ fluorocarbon leader is a good idea since it’s more abrasion resistant when going over rocks, wood, etc. and it’s also less visible than monofilament line. As we both know trout have very good eyesight, especially in clear water. If the trout you are going after are smaller I would go with the lightest leader possible (4-6lb.test)…God bless you.
