Just a basic 'newbie' question here. The wife & I are coming to Alaska again next July. When we were there earlier this year we fished with a guide for sockeyes for the first time. Want to do it again, but by ourselves this time. I know that the hook used can not be bare- must have a piece of yarn, tinsil, etc.
My question: Is there a maximum (or minimum) length of line from the weight to the hook (legally speaking)?
If not, what has been the best length been in your experience?
