    I've had the odd one over the last week or two. However, today has seen an increase in frequency. I've also been getting "you are attempting to navigate away from this page" pop ups, with "Stay on page" or "leave page" radio buttons. Something is definitely not right.

    I rarely use my phone or tablet for FM. My issues have only occurred on a laptop. As I'm not getting any problems elsewhere, I'm pretty sure it's not down to my laptop or browser.

    I have put a new thread on the Admin forum so hopefully someone will adress the issue soon

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Would one of those water repellent sprays work? I have seen these used on windscreens and water just flies of them. I have a problem with line sticking to rings and rod when it rains. I imagine this would stop that or a line sprayed with one of these would float very well. There are several on the market at Amazon for about six quid.

    Some of the silicon sprays are made as a lubricant for plumbers . What you need is a dry silicon spray.
    I use Mr sheen furniture spray.

    I have yet to find a line that doesn’t float? In fact I wish there was a true sinking line for waggler or feeder fishing. Some say Maxima sinks but it doesn’t without help.
    I once tried a “sinking method line” and that floated too...
    Why one needs mucilin or other floatants is a mystery to me?

    It may be rather academic, but there's a difference between a line sitting in surface tension and being genuinely buoyant. Fluorocarbon is definitely more dense than water, it sinks. However, that doesn't mean that it will break through the surface tension of water without any assistance.

    If you want to prove whether a line genuinely floats, is neutrally buoyant, or sinks, take a small section and place it into a glass of water making sure it's sub-surface. A buoyant line will rise in the water column, neutral will sit where it was placed in the water column (provided there's no currents for it to waft about in) and the a sinker will descend in the water column.
