Hello Everyone,

I am going to be coming down from vancouver, bc for the summer of 2013, and will be fishing for some mackerel by the canso causeway.

I had a few questions that i would like to ask

1. What lb test line I should use when i make my own mackerel feathers.

2. What lb test line should i spool my reel with.

3. What size hook should use, i think last year when i came down the feathers came with a 1/0 long shank hook.

4. What color feathers would you say works the best.

5. What size weight should i use (roughly).

Thank in advance for your help & fish on!
