    Great second article, and this is building up to a very informative series.

    However....... in the first article we read:

    'Rods are the most important item' Dave says

    In this latest installment:

    'Hooks are the most important item'

    Now, I know b*gger all about carp fishing, but I reckon that in the next two articles we will read that:

    'Bait is the most important item'

    Followed by:

    'Fish are the most important item'

    But I am perplexed that line didn't get 'most important' mention.............!


    Still not sure what's going on

    you're sooo last week kevin, as a tackle trader you should know that line is soooo last week - no-one uses it anymore....


    I blame our esteemed editor for quoting me out of context - what i said was:

    "If you are going to invest any money in one piece of kit, then I think the rods are the most important item"

    I won a load of hooks a while ago so dont invest any money in them, ergo the rods were the item that had more invested in them........was that a good answer off the top of my head....??!! sorry, wont do it again.





    also noted i really should send Graham some more pics of me with fish....turning into the FM "Jules"!!!!

    Dave

    Sorry, I really must make more effort to keep up with these modern developments!

    And given that I live within (almost!) walking distance of a lake reputed to hold decent carp, I should perhaps make the effort to fish it this year

    Might as well blank whilst fishing for carp as anything else, and it means I can buy lots of new shiny tackle so I can sit behind it all and become a 'carp fisherman' - can't wait.....!

    thats the reason for not putting line on - you might actually CATCH one (god forbid) and get your mat wet.

    An excellent second part Dave.
    when useing snakebite as a combi rig, and let's say I am useing a 12" hooklength. Would it be feasable to strip the coating back by about 6" near the hook?

    I am thinking of using it on one of my rods for Breem at distance. So I thought a longer piece of stripped snakekin would be better. But would that tend to tangle?

    Iv'e failed to find unwaxed dental floss, all I can find is the waxed version. Is it still widely available?
    In the long distant past before we had such a large selection of braids and dacron was about the only braid like material comercialy available I used unwaxed dental floss successfuly as a hooklionk material.
    Nowadays I just want it to tie on my boilies.
