Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TRICKS -

A SHORT fluoro­car­bon leader at the ter­mi­nal end of your win­ter leger rig can make a big dif­fer­ence in cold and clear wa­ter when wise fish are the tar­get. Fluoro­car­bon is al­most in­vis­i­ble in wa­ter, and also very heavy, so it’s bound to lay hard on the bot­tom.

When fish move over your rig, they won’t bump into the usual line pro­trud­ing off the bot­tom and spook

out of the swim. A leader of just three or four feet of 0.30mm fluoro­car­bon will do the trick per­fectly. Sim­ply loop-to-loop con­nect the leader to the main­line, with your cho­sen leger or feeder rig tied on the fluoro­car­bon as nor­mal.

Three or four feet is right for a flu­oro leader.

Fluoro­car­bon – heavy and hard to see.
