Yeah..... weekend hobby...... keep tellin' yourself that, buddy.....
All kidding aside, Good advise given so far.
I am more in Ant's camp-- just fish the line that is on there for the time being. As you fine tune your stroke, you can upgrade lines. You will lower the risk of damaging a nice new line, and you'll appreciate the difference once your cast is dialed in.
As a side note, I've never spent more than 30 or so on a line. (I'm a cheap-o, of course my wife has other words for it....)
EDIT/// I meant to welcome you to the forum-- enjoy your stay--- Tons of good info here-- just ask what you are wondering-- everyone is able and willing to help. We also expect pics and reports of your successes.
