    light line on an emblem?

    I am thinking of finally getting into beach fishing. I have found a very nice place up here to give it a go.

    I want to fish as light as 8 to 10lb braid for maximum casting distance and the species I am going to be targetting won't be too massive, I hope...

    The retrieve rate isn't that important to me, I just want distance.

    Is the Daiwa Emblem the go for distance chucking baits off the beach with braid this light?

    As a complete beach novice I am also interested in a rod to match it with. For distance I suppose 10 foot or so will be the go. Do they make live fibres this long for beach work?

    Cheers

    I suppose I will be targetting tailor while the mackerel are a bit quiet up here as I don't have the boat to go out far enough to target snapper.

    God knows what else will turn up though. The spot I want to fish has a good supply of hardyheads I will try and keep live through the night so a jewie is a possibility. If I get dusted on the light stuff so be it. I just hate going for tailor on 20lb+ line.

    10lb braid should handle the tailor. As for the rod you may want something a little longer but you'll get live fibres up to 13'6 or more.
