It seems to me that the answer to this question is "however much you need" unless it's just a theoretical question. If you're tossing short casts, you might have 4 feet of line outside the tip top. If you're throwing 75 feet, you might need more like 40 feet.
God does not subtract from man's allotted time those hours spent fishing.
