HOW can I fix Stotz on to thick line? They keep pinging off when I try.
Lewis Manning, Castleford
SEEK out styl pincers, a handy little tool for fixing tiny styl weights on to fine lines.
They work just as well for larger Stotz and thicker carp lines, allowing you to apply even pressure along the whole length of the weight and pin the line against the very back of the split in the weight.
Don’t use your teeth – this will damage the line, your teeth, and not give you a firm hold.
