  • Fluoro line

    I have never used fluorocarbon line before and after listening to kieth arthur on saturday it got me thinking i am missing out on fish due to using mono has a hook length.

    What is the best fluoro line to use has a hook length for carp fishing bearing in mind the cost.

    Also i normaly make rigs that go straight through can this be done with fluoro line i.e. shot won't damage it.

    cheers steve

      i've tried it a few times, not totally convinced about it to be honest, seems stiff, kinks easily, had a few breaks that i might not have expected for the diameter of the line.
      Just my opinion though...

        Same as Tigra Rob, I have had a few breakages that I wouldn't have expected. The stuff I had wasn't stiff though, pretty soft for the diameter in fact.

          I now fish comercials normaly, which make of fluoro line would you recomend for this. Also in your opinion did the fluoro line get you bites when others struggled on mono.

          I also like to make rigs straight through without a hook length would you recommend this with fluoro line? Ive also heard that you can struggle to make knots due to its properties is this true?

          Last of all is it worth the expense or should i stick to silstar match (or clarkes has it is now known).

              Most commercials are coloured enough that it doesn't matter too much. I get enough line bites to convince me that the fish don't really worry too much about seeing the line when they want to feed. Perhaps when they aren't really having it then a flurocarbon might help.

              I haven't had any problems with knots personally. It was used in fly fishing initially and we all know that trout can fight well.
