I am using the Seaguar Fluorocarbon leader material to make up the Tarpon leader and shock tippet...etc. I use the 100lb shock tippet is in case those Barracuda show up and eat the Tarpon fly !!!

PS: Just to let you know I am from Saskatchewan, Canada. The nearest ocean is about 2600 km away !!!

Thank you for your help.
Make a traditional bimini and then using that single strand loop double it back on itself for the surgeons.
