    Accept it, it will happen to other around you as well. Most likely because a lot of F1s are hooked just outside the mouth.

                    never had a bite shallow only got 5 f1s out lost about 15 all the other fish were ide swing them in on a top5 they dont need to go shallow from 16 up its only 3-4ft deep they would have had more but they all tried getting them shallow and ended feeding too much for deck fishing its so un even that pond unless p10 in nobody can compete with p12 when a decent angler who can chuck a tip in the same spot is on it

                      i read that hook in the loop is supposed to be good for f1's but i aint got a clue how to tie em and i know some that reckon its a bit of a gimmick too!

                          dont have much confidence with a knot close to the hook i dont know if light elastics are the way gives them too much time to shed the hook while pulling them up from the deeps

                            rob was losing a fair few the other week when we drew next to each other matey,,
                            he commented on how sound my set up looked afterwards
                            i hardly lost any to be honest ,0.11 to 0.09 powerline with preston 9h and a middy 63-13
                            seemed like a pretty sound set up for the day!!!
