    I use a 4lb mono on my ultra light spin-rig.

      Depends on the size of trout I am after, and the type of water I'm fishing. I usually go with 6lb for all around stream fishing.

        I use anywhere from 4-8 lb depending on which rod and where. Mostly 6 lb fluor. I have used braided when trolling late spring early summer.

                    4 lb green mono in lakes with stained water, clear in alpine lakes.
                    6 lb in streams and rivers, sometimes 8 lb if I know there are really big, 5 lb+ trout in the area or the river is way up with lots of snags.

                      I prefer 8 lb. braided (Fireline) a simple flick of the wrist and they are hooked. plus it casts quite a bit further than mono.

                        I use 4 lb monofilament on an open faced spinning reel, with a six and a half foot Fenwick ultralight rod.

                          Since we mostly fish rivers and streams filled with rocks my son and I prefer 6 pound mono. I have used various brands and colors and don't really prefer one over the other. That Fireline fishinfool suggested sounds interesting, I'll look at it.

                            depends on my rod since they are few and far between here in texas i just keep my regular crappie setup which is usually mono up to 8lb test or braid up to 14lb test depending on the circumstances

                                Fawning season and "leaf" season pretty much coincide here. By the time does start dropping fawns, the trees and understory have leafed out...

                                How's your local herd doing? Around here I seldom see many fawns in May, but everything seems to be a couple-three weeks ahead of schedule and we'll...

                                I agree that it's hypocritical to get upset over Jan 6 but not the summer of 2020. There were differences though. Floyd riots...
