A permenant Butt section of 18'' of 20lb on the sink tip, looped or Albrighted to about 2 1/2 feet of maxima 8lb to -however big I think I can get away with. Rope size of the water is dirty.:devil: Yes I know the butt doesn't really do much, but I don't feel as tackle nerdy without some sort of taper and a few knots to fuss with. Can't have life too simple now.
Oh I also use about 20 feet of nylon cord. Half inch..... To my anchor. Gets down mighty quick, right on them stones. Bit tough to spey cast though.
i like either 12 or 15 pound ultra-green maxima.you dont want to go too heavy as you have to be able to break off without destroying your leader/ flyline set-up when your fly gets hung up on the bottom(and it will).
Total length of 4 to 5 feet with RIO salmon/bass/steelhead 13.2# as the tippet during winter/spring or when chum/king fishing. During summer/fall total length the same 4 to 5 feet but the tippet is lowered to RIO salmon/bass/steelhead 10.5# tippet.
