Bruce,

On my sinking heads I used a 9-foot leader, a single strand of 8-pound Max. For the floating head I used a tapered 9-foot leader with a tippet of 8-pound Max. I suppose I could have dropped down to 6-pound but I don't think they were being leader shy and I would have busted off some fish on the strike for sure.

When those big trout came for the pond smelt Clouser fished on the floating line, there was no hesitation. Like you said, the eats were explosive!
