    What I usually do is use a hooklength 0.02mm smaller in diameter than the mainline. Obviously there's no reason you couldn't fish a 7lb hooklength to a 9lb mainline but if you're going to fish a 7lb hooklength you may as well use an 8lb mainline, after all using lighter lines can surely only improve your chances of catching, especially whilst the water is still fairly clear.

      What species are you fishing for and what method are you fishing.

        What fordy said.

        0.12 ml = 0.10 hl. This suits me fine and I know the hl will go before the main line.

            The only time my hook length is stronger than my main line is when using a method feeder.
            I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
            He says he gives me good advice. does he ?
