Hi Adrian, We are all well thank you. God is meeting all our needs. You don’t need to match the main line weight to the leader weight. For example many steelheaders use an 8lb test main line and down to a 4 lb. test fluorocarbon leader. Another example is anglers using 10 lb. main line may use up to a 30lb fluorocarbon leader when fishing for pike. Fluorocarbon as a main line in cold water/weather can stiffen up and make it tough to cast due to coiling. I would recommend you either use a monofilament or braid for your main line.

Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our www.canadian-sportfishing.com website.
