Re: Best flurocarbon to mono knot?

I go by the X number too, Paul! I think i am going to stop using it. I have had fluorocarbon break at some weird random points in the line, and this was tightening up knots, testing knots at home with a gauge, and when fighting a particularly large salmon. The knots didn't slip and they were fine, n...

Re: Lanyard segmented neck foam

Thank you all for your help! I have actually found out what they were from, which was a relief. I was going slightly mad trying to find it! For anyone else who is interested in making one, it's from a 'floating glasses strap' and this is the one i have found. Now, i just need to find the foam on it'...

Lanyard segmented neck foam

Hi all, I am currently building some fishing lanyards, and i have everything i need except for the segmented neck foam! Do any of you know what it is called, and even better, where i could get this from? I do think it is superior over a single piece of rigid tubing, as it is more flexible. Thank you...

A vibrator makes a good priest too.
Hahaha! :D is that from experience, Paul?

Thank you all, I went with the scientific anglers stuff and it has worked quite well (as expected) I still favour my SA ED line though!

All the best

Re: Best flurocarbon to mono knot?

Thank you all for the excellent comments. I did actually know that Lars, it's funny as I'm usually the person correcting other people on jargon :pirate: I cannot believe I put that! Must be a brainwashing thing after hearing the term used every time I go fishing. Thank you for this. The slim beauty ...

Best flurocarbon to mono knot?

Hello everyone, Somebody asked me about leader construction last week, and i was wondering what knot other people use to connect flurocarbon to mono? I used to use a 3 turn water knot, then I went to a double uni knot, and now I loop to loop my tippet to my tapered leader for general trout fishing (...

Re: Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

Thank you, both. That is very helpful. I was taken by surprise when i had a quick chuck with it (without the dressing) but now i have put it on, it is quite a nice line. The head is a lot shorter than what i'm used to, i do love the SA EDC lines, and any line with a long head really. Most of my rods...

Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

Hello all, I recently bought a snowbee prestige XS orange line for teaching. I spooled it on my reel, and had a quick throw with it yesterday. My first thoughts were "wow, this line is awful!" It was dry as a bone and started screeching on the rings, it didn't shoot properly at all. This line was bo...
