    I changed the Snap Swivel to a Barrel Swivel. I had never stoped to think about using a leader that is weaker than my line. I have always thought of a leader as a tool that protects your line from the teeth and thrashing of a big cat, not a tool that protects the rest of my rig. This is something I must think about. Here are some real pics of my rig.

    Thanks for all of your help,

    i like it all the way down to the swivel im not a big fan of snelled hooks 25 to 30 pound leader with a kale hook will improve the hook up on the bobber iv found out from experince with that j hook u have to reel in all the slack fast then lay into it quck with the kahle it gives u a few more secs and usely dont loose the fish hope this helps
