    If your fishin a live fin bait especially bigger ones like sardines and mackeral your 1/8 oz to 1oz slider is not close to the hook or bait most of the time til you are winding your bait in...with squid even dead stuff it don't seem to matter...

    Slide sinker over mainline, tie on a barrel swivel of suitable size/quality for fish species, tie on leader/hook of whatever type cranks your handle. You can easily change out leader test in just seconds.

    1)put your spectra through a sliding sinker, and tie it onto a swivel
    2)connect flurocarbon leader to opposite side of swivel
    3)Tie hook to fluorocarbon(only 3-4 feet of fluoro, enough to be able to cast still with a sliding sinker almost at the tip).

    I don't use anything. I usually keep a long tag on my knots as the other side of the knot has a 300yd tag end. The egg is never by the hook when flylining, only on the retrieve. Been my secret weapon of choice for many moons.
    Not crazy about the toothpick, as the bait has to drag around the egg that way, my way the bait can swim more freely, plus it casts WAY easier than having an egg up away from the bait.
