    I've just got back from an early morning few hours after Carp and I'm rustier than i thought, (useless actualy). It's been a while since i picked up the Carp rods and i lost a good fish due to bad knots.

    I was using flourocarbon hook links for the first time (vanish) and the link broke at the knot due to strangulation i think as you could see where the line had flatened out. I use a kind of blood knot most of the time but it seems that this material is going to need something else, i am thinking Palomer but if somebody has already been through all this and come up with a good knot i would be interested to know!!!!!

    Murray - a common thread this one. There have been a few recently about fluro's so do a search on past threads and you will see all the debate so it may save you time ??

    Murray,

    Throw the line in the bin. I bought several spools of 'Vanish' when it came out and it's not fit to hang pictures on.

    I couldn't even get as far as tying a hook on the line - no matter how carefull I was it snapped.

    ***** stuff - get rid mate !

    I knew the fluro debate would tempt them back Murray.

    By the way I subscribe to Barney's point, I didn't notice you mentioned Vanish. I went one further. Nearly every hooklink I tied it broke at the knot or swivel (I tend to give it hard pull first).....so I went and got my money back!
