  • Which elastic should I go for next?

    Hi
    Fished a pool today with a few big lumps in it, I managed to get out 1 of the five I hooked, as soon as they felt the hook they headed staright for the reeds, & then I had no chance of pulling them out, although I was fishing with a Preston 15 hydro elastic, I was powerless to get em out, any advice what elastic I should step up to next would be much appreciated.

      Cut it in half tie half a length of Dacron or lead core to it attach to a bead on puller kit
      Set it soft and it will bottom and stop the fish far quicker !!!

        Solid elastic! The worse the snags, the tighter you want it! 18 inch of 25 should stop em!

                      walk around the lake before the match starts and feed some dog biscuits

                      "no feeding BEFORE a match starts"

                      I only score 1 point, "Mr Last" consistency is the key success and my team mates love me for it!
