Default Re: beginner surf questions

I use 6' of 16-20# test mono with poppers and a three section leader for streamers. 40/25/16 #test mono.
You want to keep the leader shorter than the rod. That way the line/leader connection is one less thing to worry about when landing a fish.

Not something you could do with a sinking line.
