Hook­length or not?

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

WHEN would you not use a hook­length and in­stead fish straight through?

An­drew Wilkin­son, Bridling­ton

US­ING a hook­link of a finer di­am­e­ter line will al­ways get you more bites but cre­ates a weak link, which is haz­ardous when fish­ing for big carp, tench and chub. Fish­ing one strength of line all the way through will give you the max­i­mum chance of land­ing these spec­i­mens.

Match an­glers fish­ing mar­gins on com­mer­cials of­ten fish what’s called ‘straight through’ to elim­i­nate this weak link.
