Leader knope: (Hierdie is die beste knoop ooit. For using a braid leader, wrap the leader 7 times instead of 3 times as shown in the pics.)

Casting: (this is the action I use for casting. Getting the rod to bend depends on the rod and the weight being cast and whether the rod is capable of casting that weight etc.)

Casting far is not just about the length of the butt. Good rods to look at would be Blue Marlin Vector/Vectra 12' rods. You should pick these up at arounf R400 each. If you can afford something more expensive, look at Shimano Beastmasters or Blue Marlin T53. Someone who would be able to help you is Enigma. Send him a PM.

I use a XX 7 LBS Mainline, Leaderline is a XX 20 LBS. Both of them is the brown cameleon type. Your leader helps you to cast hard as it asorbs the shock. With a 7 LBS line without a leader I think you wont be able to cast a mealiebomb.

A 8ft Rod is ideal for fishing in the river where you don't have to cast far. For fishing a dam I suggest a 10 or 12 FT rod.

Just got back from Margate Pier, winds pushing very hard, can''t get a 6 OZ grap sinker to set with a shad head. One more week guys! Will hit the river when I get back ;)

I wouldn't use my carp fishing gear in the ocean. The bearings could get damaged on the reel and the line I think is to thin.

I currently use a Daiwa Opus Plus 6000 Grinder  with .4mm XX Hi-Viz and a Kingfisher .6mm or .75mm leader. My line is quite thin to the gear that some guys use. If you fish near rocks you will break.

On another note, a Valie put out a slide on the Margate Pier with a 1 KG Carp for bait.::S Unfortunately he got stuck on the rocks below and his line broke.

One more week at the sea then I will target the Vaaldam again ;)

Back to my concerned question is a 15lb leaderline sufficient on a 10lb main line

Hi CC.I know its a bit late,but here's my 2c worth.The diameter of your leader would depend more on the rod you use than your main line.On my 13ft Okumas I use 17lb leader with 5lb main line.On my 10ft Sensation Torpedos I use 14lb leader with 5lb main line.The 13ft has more backbone than the 10ft,so it puts more pressure on the leader when casting,therefor a thicker leader.
