Re: Line setup – Canterbury Coast


Most of the time I use 20lb mono mainline and 50lb shockleader. I find this good still heavy enough not to get too damaged by the swell and stones etc but still light enough to get a decent cast. Any heavier than 20lb or 0.40mm and your casting distance will be significantly effected.

If its calm with swells less than 1/2 a metre I use my second reel with 12lb mainline and 60lb shockleader.
