Thanks for all your posts. Alot of these things are a mystery to me - i've never used leadcore or these float stops, or putty. Have I been missing something over the years. The rigs I use are ones when I first fished for carp fifteen years ago.
Also, the post re slack lines - I have only ever used slack lines for margin fishing. Is this not the case or can you use it anytime.
I have the coated hooklength stuff - which is the best way to use that with silt and these sorts of rigs. I know you can strip a bit here and a bit there but have never really thought of why you would do this or have ever tried it really. Thanks
