  • cliping up.

    Hi all.
    when fishing the method clipped up, when you hit a big one and the clutch is screaming off and you cannot release the clip and you get snapped.
    question is , how is this avoidable.
    thanks.
    all the best steve.

    Firstly I set the drag as tight as it will go so that don't happen! Normally you can hit and hold, especially against an island. If you really are struggling, just release the line from the clip, easy to do if you have the clip in the right place and I will have already counted my turns so can quickly get back to the same distance. Just make sure you have strong tackle on.

      Hi
      cheers Nathan, i have heard about putting a stop knot on the line out of light elastic.
      the theory being, it should pull free from the clip, or is this just rubbish.
      tried to pull the line off the clip but, snap hooklink gone.
      thanks.
      all the best steve.

        when we used to go to messingham sands on the island pond you had to clip up cause if you werent on the slope of the island you didnt get a bite.when we got a bite we used to put the rod from side to side several times and this used to confuse the carp and you could get a few turns on these fish and these fish run mental needed proper carp gear on 10lb line straight through

          Hi Breamgod.
          i did get a few turns on the reel, thought i had it beat, but then it made a mad run, clutch on reel went like a good un.
          tried to unclip but to late hooklink gone.
          the lake had carp from 6oz to 30lb +.
          i must have hit one of the big un's.
          i had 8lb main line and 0.17mm hooklink, how can i prevent this happening again.
          all the best steve.

              When you have found the range,tie a small stop knot a couple of inches from the reel.(i use powergum but some use pole elastic) clipped up make your cast to the island,put you rod in the rests and unclip,if you want to recast(not having had a fish)clip up reel in, rebait and cast back to the spot,set the rod and unclip,if you catch a fish you will then need to make a false cast,the stop knot will show you where you need to clip up,reel in,rebait and cast to the spot,set the rod and unclip,it souns complicated but its not and it involves a false cast after every fish,but it means you can hit the spot and if a big fish arrives you can give as much line as you need.
              Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

                I never clip up in open water, especially when big fish are present. What I do to ensure accuracy is once I've found the distance I'm fishing at I tie a sliding knot between reel and 1st ring. When you cast out you will hear the knot going through the rings. Then immediately put your finger on spool stopping the line coming off. Within a couple of throws doing this you'll be surprised how accurate it is. I stop it usually about 2/3rds the way up the rod rings, the knot being very easy to spot.
                Any fast running fish can now do what they want with the clutch set right. Make sure you leave at least 3cm lengths of line on both tag ends of the knot. That way it goes through the rings smoothly.

                    Step up to 0.22 on the method, maybe stronger for snaggy swims but you won't be lettingh fish run then asnyway! As for releasing the clip, point the rod at the fish annd release it, that gives you more time and tighten up that drag, they are a pain in the bottom!

                      You are not a big fan of drag by the sounds of it nathan,do you ever use the drag or do you always backwind,i myself like to use the drag.

                      Do you not loose a lot of fish backwinding more so when the fish goes on a run i find the drag compansates for that were i would have thought you get more hook pulls on backwinding

                          cut a strip of bike inner tube to just less than the depth of your reel spool,cast to where you want to fish,then place the inner tube over the remaining line on your spool,reel back in and cast to your spot.the inner tube then acts as a brake.if a big fish hits you,it should take line from under the tube.worth a try?
