    I'v done well on long hairs over the years, even on pop ups, one of my best sessions came while using a 2inch gap between hook and bait with the hook 3inches of the deck, all were hooked solid and bang dead centre , and one had the bait cut off.....this I guessed was because the bait had been taken back into the teeth.............now a bit of a ramble as its hard to write what I think, but, the mass (?) of the bait is affected far greater when blown out then the mass of the hook ( or is it drag?? something anyway), so when the bait goes in further with the hook, the hook stays in longer(milliseconds) until the bait is ejected which I believe gives a better chance for the hook to turn and take a hold.
     
    One thing that I know for sure is that while using long hairs I hardly ever have hook pulls.

    beanz reacted to liamclose in Boredom   
    If you fish hard big fish waters on regular basis there are times of boredom anybody who says otherwise is kidding themselvs. Majority of anglers have some sort of entertainment weather it be a radio a fone, tablet what ever if like some people try to imply that when there fishing there at one with nature and dont get bored then they wouldn't need a radio, tablet or what ever it's human nature if there nothing happening sitting in silence at one with nature as great but you will suffer from boredom at some point. Majority of anglers may do 4 nites a month on slightly easier lake fair enough boredom might not set in. if your fishing hard on regular basis on hard venues boredom is part of it sometimes. If that wasnt the case big hard low stock lakes would be full of anglers. I read an interview with terry hearn and they asked him how he gets threw long periods of inactivity and he said I bore it out. that doesnt mean he doesn't love fishing and what it's all about but big fish angling on low stock lakes with out doubt involves periods of boredom.

    will probably work out cheaper to buy a roll of roofing lead mate .... a 25lb roll should cover it .

    Thinking about it........I was an instant carper, although I'd fished for other species before even thinking about carp, the day I did go off to target them...........I caught a 16lb common within 20 minutes   I was actually going to bait up( as I read carp were hard to catch) glad I took a telescopic rod.

    Can I bring a mate he's never fished before and he's got about £5000 to spend on a set up he's watched a few youtube clips so he knows what to do .
     
    P.s  he needs me to tie his main line to his rig according to him thats the hardest part this knot tying thing , he says he'll be fine with everything else.

    Apparently it's never been caught before and word is it was stocked a week before at 74 .
     
    This is going to ruin the records, and go the way of the wells catfish and make the records unclassified
