Heavy braid Steve, Andy prefers not to thread the stingers through the lure but I can't remember why


It's never a 'six', let's put it back

Latest odds for biggest Zed myself and Rusty 150/1 outsiders due to danger of being pushed in whilst landing fish ,Matthew 10/1 due to boat partner coaching Tigger same as Steve W and Rob could be the dark horses and a good punt at 20/1 prices from Bet Rusty.com....Do we need another trophy in case of Bream flukage??? .


We are not putting it back it is a lump now put that curry down and go and get the scales

have I told you abouit the cruise control on my Volvo ,,,,,,,bla bla bla Barder rod has it come yet?? and don`t even start me on Chris Lythe :bleh::icecream:

Some people don't like to thread stingers because they think it affects the action of the lure. Another reason is so the treble can come free from the lure when a fish is hooked, so it's less likely to use the lure as leverage and drop off.

 

I've always threaded them but Andy's much better at it than I am!

At those odds I'll have a tenner on me.

 

After the worst week I've had at work for many years I met this afternoon's deadline and now I've got all of next week off. As long as we can get out on the boats I don't care what the weather's going to do at Rutland, I'll brave the thunder & lightning if I have to (and swap JV44's St Croix for a 15' Harrison while he's not looking).

Actually just checked mine and although I thought he had threaded them he had not so same as Rusty except for the better colours on my lures

Define heavy braid

 

I was going to use 15lb Drennan knot-able wire but I have some 3olb braid that would definitely improve the action.

Surely Rusty has got to be nailed on for the Bream trophy Steve. Can't wait for the presentation ceremony!
