yep, agree with all of the above. I'm only a relatively recent convert to light line fishing (since I got the yak actually). Previously I thought 10 or 12 pound was light line - but I bit the bullet and bought some 6lb braid to go on a nice light outfit I got off ebay (saratoga bream rod and oscillate reel - can't fault either of them - total cost about $40 - $50 by memory) and it is just great fun. I have caught a lot of good fish (40cm bream, 80cm snook) and have yet to have the line break. I've now gone and bought some 4lb line (bought both braid and a hybrid) which i'm hoping to trial this weekend. I use a 8lb leader, but might even go a bit lighter with that too. Go light - be happy!
