What is your preference for winter steelhead: Braided line all the way to the jig or braided line with mono leader. Does this vary based on the conditions? What conditions? How long of a leader do you use? What is less visible to or steelhead: mono or a braided line much smaller in diameter: like 10lb mono vs 20lb power pro. I am very new to fishing braided line but I loved it fishing for (not very line shy) silvers this year in the Sandy. I've had good success jig fishing for steelhead (mono all the way) the past couple of years an I just don't want limit my success.
