    Hey there Fellow Fishos
    Quick question from the experts and alike.
    I purchased a new travel out fit for my bike touring and have spooled it with Fireline Ultra 8 Carrier. At the shop was told that I would not need a leader because of the way it is made?
    Thoughts?
    Cheers

    Definatly use leader, learn the fg knot or other braid to mono knots if u don't know already, braid stands out like dogs b-lls the fish see it easily unless very murky water.

    You got it in one there Howard.

    There are a lot of them working in bcf who wouldn't have a clue when it comes to fishing gear or anything being sold in the shop and I will not engage them in any conversation at all if they cannot demonstrate product knowledge.
