Right bit of a tricky on this , Guess it depends on what ur fishing for , If ur looking for perch , silvers etc I would say yes as the 6lbs is just ur main line , I would then use say a size 16 animal hook that comes with a 3bls line on it and all I would to is tie a loop on the end of your main line and do a loop to loop with the hook link , Length of hook link well if doing this its predetermined for u ,ie lengths and all u do is use a plum weights to find dead bottom and move ur float up the line till it's showing its tip , and fish from there , shortening the float up till u find the fish ,? Now if ur talking carp ( small that isn't say 12lbs max till u know what ur doing then still ok , The rule is if using a mid weight line looking for larger fish , have ur drag set light and don't try bulling a fish in , I've had carp to 18lbs on 3lbs line , on a center pin , So the question is what are I targeting and or what's in the water u will be fishing ?

Ho as for bread crust u can do both , on a river I just hook a lump of crust to a hook and let the current take it down stream On a still water I found if ur fishing on the top I use a controller float with crust works best if fishing for carp
