I was reading something about butt sections and how they vary depending on the fly line wt. The in the article it was mentioned that for an 8wt line one should use a 40 pond test line and 30 for smaller lines. Now, if I'm using just a straight piece of mono (for striped bass fishing), what pound test you guys suggest I use? I take for that use I don't need a subtle presentation. I'll be using a sinking tip line, I do have popper leaders in case I go top water. I did want to tie some 9ft 1 & 0 x leaders but that means that I gotta buy line.
