could try fishing with out a shockleader but uprating your mainline. Then when the weed collects around the knot to your rig just cut the line pull the weed off and re-tie the rig back on. But i have found that weed is normally only a problem on certain stages of the tide. Can only remember once whe...

This also has a tiny sea fishing section which gets as much use as my drop net! So sure there must be one for your...

Would imagine that fibre optic strands would be a no, as the tip is going to be flexing alot. This would snap the strands, also the light of a fibre optic strand is only visible at the end on the cut cross section. A high intensity LED with a reflector shield would be your best chance i imagine? pus...

1. This would weaken the leader. 2. It will still be the same diameter, Just not round but now flat! Also i imagine that a normal knot would be more bulky and less strong. As when tieing straping as oppsed to rope you have to use different knots to achieve the same knot strength and to have a lower ...
