TEST YOUR REEL LINES

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

AS a sim­ple test, try thread­ing dif­fer­ent main lines through your var­i­ous rods and tie them to some­thing static in the gar­den. Then ap­ply steady pres­sure to the rod un­til the line breaks. If you’ve never done this, I wouldn’t mind guess­ing that many read­ers will be sur­prised at just how much steady pres­sure can be ap­plied with­out line break­ages.

Try the ex­er­cise from a dis­tance in an open field or on the river­bank and you might be shocked at just how much you can get away with when the end of your line is at­tached to some­thing 30 yards away.
