What is the best leader out there that is best suited for squid and is there any particular leader designed just for squid?
Thanks in advanced for any help.

Cheers Joe :)

A clear flourocarbon leader will do the job.

Most good tackle jobs will have this gear.

Cheers

I use Egi leader by sunline , it's a fluorocarbon 100% and it's clear and 8lb.
tie a couple of feet on and tie on a jig and look out squid.
works fine for me.

I also use the sunline Egi Leader. I went to a squid information session last week run by Yamashit and they suggested the leader should be 2 meters in length and they use and "FG Leader Knott" Have a look on youtube its very hard but a thin strong knott.

Cheers,

Kim

I just use an albright knot to tie on the leader and a blood knot to the jig, never had it break yet but I have been bitten off by a big squid that grabbed the jig from the front...bastard...lol
