if you pull some line off a reel now, does it show severe memory?
I don't store my saltwater lines on the reel unless I'm in the tropics, so I can't tell you.

Re: Heating lines in hot water.

When I store my saltwater lines between trips I first put them in warm (not hot) water and give them a stretch. I hold the stretch as the line cools (I do this an arms length at a time - it cools very rapidly). I then treat the lines with a normal silicone based treatment before storing them in larg...

Re: Sea trout distance rods

At BFCC events I'll often use the same 9ft #10 rod for the #5, #7 and ST27 events. I do also have a 10ft rod for the ST27 depending on how I'm feeling on the day (my PB was set with the 10ft rod).

Cheers, James

Re: Running line for beginner

I don't think many would argue that mono is the best for distance, but I find it a bitch to fish with. As such, for fishing I use the running line from #5 floaters that I've ruined during casting practice. I just cut out the really bad bit and use the rest to graft onto the back of any shooting head...

Re: Wax or polish for a HT ?

I just use the pad that I use to apply line slick to my fly line to run over the rod and the rings. I do this with the rod fully assembled so I don't go near the male section of the joints. Be careful when you're pulling the rod apart as it's easy for your hands to slip and damage a ring.

Re: PUALD Challenge

It’s not my competition John, but I wouldn’t question your integrity :D Whoa there, you do know he's Australian right? I think we need to see the box and spool the line's from, the receipt from the tackle shop where it was bought, a bank statement showing the appropriate debit, a photo ID and some ...

Still looking for Pauls numbers :D

Cheers Lasse
I used to have the numbers but they were lost in the great computer crash of 2019 (fucking microsoft :glare: ) so I can't help either.
