Depends on what I want to fish that day:

Dobyns HP 741
Tatula LT SS 3000
8lb fluro

Dobyns HP 742C
Pixzilla
8lb fluro

If I’m using a tube, I’ll go with a Gamakatsu ds hook. I’ll use the roboworm hook for worms. And I rarely go heavier than a 1/4 oz weight.

From Southern California here where a lot of our lakes are deep clear water reservoirs.

Custom Phenix K2 682 extended to 6'10"
Vanquish 2500s
6lb tatsu
Gama Aaron Martens TGW DS hook size 1 or 2
4.5 or 6" Roboworm ST or Yamamoto Shad Shaped Worm

But I'm always changing tackle and everything. That's just my favorite at the moment.

What’s a micro swivel? Is that the size 0 they make?

Ha - if I had to fish with just one, I would go with the 852s. It just has a bit more sensitivity in my hands.
