You could keep your feeder rig on a pole winder using normal mono line.
Tie a loop in the line on your feeder rig.Then simply tie the braid mainline to the rig loop.

Remember not to pull the loop through your tip eye when casting though as it could hinder the cast.[;)]

a good tip i learn from sea fishing was to attatch a snap link to the end of the braid, in helps save your expensive braid when chopping and changing rigs and its alot quicker than tying knots!

I would use 6 to 8lb mono to a high tech low diameter hooklink in .16 to .18.
Use a running ledger by having a swivel snap link free running on the line above the hooklength swivel.
