If your mainline is arguably the most important part of your fishing setup, what braid would you want to have on your reel if and when you hook that fish of a lifetime?
If you use a fluoro or mono leader for your lure fishing, what influences your choice of leader material, and does a more expensive line make much difference?
Can the thickness of your leader ever actually affect your catch results? (the endless joys of breaking strains and diameters!)
Sufix 131 G-Core braid review - £40+ for a 150m spool, £75+ for a 300m spool
Sufix X8 braid review - the replacement for Sufix Performance Pro 8, still well under £20 for a 150m spool
Van Staal VR50 review - not cheap, bought in the US, have now sold it, gutted……….
At 79cms long and in seriously good condition, I feel entirely confident that yesterday afternoon I landed my first 10lb+ bass from the shore
Do many of you here NOT use a fluoro or mono leader on the end of your braid?
I had a quick go with the new waterproof and sealed Van Staal VR50 spinning reel - how much sense does it make for our lure fishing?
So far these braid leaders are working really well
It wrecks my head when you give it a go this time of year, you lose a nice fish, then you’re left wondering and never knowing
I really like the look of these VMC treble and single hooks for lures, and there are also some barbless options (yippee!)
