So I bought some floro line today to make some leaders to use with my powerpro line for finese bass fishing (for context, I don't walleye fish) My thought was to use a barrel swivel and about 20 inches of floro carbon 14-20 pound test. Then just tie the floro direct to my lure of choice. Is this a good plan? Any suggested modifications?

Make sure you wet your line because the friction will weaken your know.
Pull slowly. I had a problem a couple years ago because I pulled to tight in checking the test and weaken the knot. There is a lot of good info on the web about knots. Flo really works well in clear water
Keep it tight,

Sorry about the spelling sent b4 I checked.
I also wanted to add I would suggest using about 3 foot of leader. You can also use a heavier test leader because the fish cannot see the leader. Now you have to be careful because a heavy test leader may cause the lure action to be different.
