    Mono hooklink with Mono hair

    this would also allow me to cast without the hindrance of a big bag I do have some PVA nuggets which I have never used, planned on using with my zig rigs but maybe I should use on the hair Thanks for the helpful advice

    Mono hooklink with Mono hair

    did you find the knotless knot an issue with IQ2 ? What BS did you use 12lb ? I have 12lb and 15lb, might have 20lb as well ?

    Mono hooklink with Mono hair

    PVA bags was my go to feed method at other venues but where I fish now there is a large stock of near record size roach, a lot of bream too so pellets etc is gone before the carp see it. I could stick boilies in the pva bag but now I tend to use stringers and fish over a bed of boilies put out via cat or stick. Its been nice not using the PVA bag as I can cast further but now finding that the bag was serving a good role of keeping tangles at bay as well as adding free bait. I could carry in with bags with boilies in but trying to avoid that

    Mono hooklink with Mono hair

    I think I have the reasons why I had some problems My hooks are ESP Long shank size 6, used these a while with blow back style hairs ( silicon or ring on hook ) The hooklink is Coretex from Fox coated and the hair and the first 1" behind the hook has the coating stripped off The tangles are not from wrapping around the lead so much but the hook tangling with hooklink itself if that makes sense Yes i could wrap in PVA nugget or stick in a bag, my venue doesn't lend itself to PVA bags so maybe the PVA nugget is the only solution apart from Mono or Fluro as an alternative. I like the simple approach so maybe 12lb mono including the hair is the way forward ?

    No issues of knotless knot strength ?

    Mono hooklink with Mono hair

    Had a few issues with braided hook links today, yet the Fluro hook links on my other rods with supple hairs never tangled Thinking of making up some mono 12lb hooklinks and using a mono hair would that work well do you think and would knotless knot in mono be strong enough ? I also have some IQ2 in 12lb and 15lb Fluro but that may be too stiff especially the hair Should I ditch the coated braid for mono or IQ2 ??

    Anti tangle

    yes I have those FOX I think, they also fit nicely in the FOX inlines However they don't fit the Korda clips very well nor do the other Qwik Clips I have. Its seems as suggested the Korda clips only suit a size 8 swivel and they then click and lock Can you guys recommend a good lead clip / qwik clip match maybe the Fox ones Bear in mind I want to slide anti tangle sleeve back over it when the hooklink is attached to avoid getting tangles

    Anti tangle

    Guys your suggestion of using a quick clip in the lead clip doesn't seem to work, the clip is designed to fit the swivel and click and hold the swivel, thus allowing the lead clip to work when trying to shed the lead Gave up and still stumped how to make a better job However I have ordered some longer anti tangle sleeve for the hooklinks to slide back over the swivel and clip, that might work ? What did I do wrong ??

    Anti tangle

    Its exactly like the pic, worried about too much hinging and risk of tangles any ideas ?

    Anti tangle

    Was planning a change of rig today, running to semi fixed set up However with all my bits and bobs I couldn't get an anti tangle proof hooklink to leadclip swivel connection Lead clip has swivel, to this I have quick clip but then too much metal and could tangle, do not want to rely on PVA The only option would be to tie my hooklinks every time to the lead clip swivel, that's seems crazy but would work What am I missing ? What I need is quick clip on hooklink or leadclip but a sleeve I can pull back to stop risk of tangles in flight etc any ideas ??

    Carp Porter mk2
  14. My current venue has a clay / sandy lake bottom, do you think having a contrasting colour is better than a colour that gets lost visually on the bed ? Talking about bottom baits not pop ups !

    Suffolk & Norfolk syndicates

    That is very true and the reason this is called a Forum, everybody can express an opinion right or wrong. The website for NS is a superb job, people can make their minds up if its the venue for them after they have looked etc, some people want different things from a venue which is good or we would all be trying to fish the same places I do think the website should show membership rules and prices to join, that way people could decide before sending in an application, just my opinion My membership comes to an end at NS soon but I am still not sure if I should renew at this stage as I have other memberships right to end of 2014. Sadly its all about money in many cases and the enjoyment you get back. Keep up the good work as I know alot of hard work has taken place and you have support from well known anglers in the region. Maybe I will look at NS in 2015 but by that time I am sure you will be very full and I wouldn't put my name down on anybodys waiting list regardless of the venue.
