Hi guys...

Started preparing the weapons of mass destruction and was wondering what would be the best way to rig up....?! Ok Im running 80lg braid to my 6m-1mm lead line.

Should I attach a power clip that would attach directly to the popper...or should i have a 1m fluorocarbon tied to the popper (which knot?) and then to a power swivel (fig 8knot) and then attach that to the power clip on the main leader...?!

If i am using piano wire for fish with teath how would i set that up...?!

Many thanks...

Hoods

Hoods - Sorry bro, Tkei is right.. I'm in shytehole London, only back on the 30th... not much time so will have to get back to ya perhaps over the weekend....

But I would look at going Leader to Solid ring, and then to Split ring onto the nose of the poppers.... same deal with Jigs....

I use a Uniknot connection with to turns through the ring, and using protective tubing helps a little too...

I'll grab some links over the weekend and post them up for ya...

Cheers from the North
Nepps

Cheers

Poppers... attach straight to the leader. Or you can attach the leader to a Quality Power swivel (they cost upwards of R15 each and are rated 250lb++), which is then attached to a quality Split Ring, which enables quick change without knots...

You don't need Fluorocarbon for the poppers because with poppers, the leader is out the water most of the time, so it doesn't make any diffs....

Attach the leader to the Swivel with the standard Fig 8 knot that we use in R&S. The leader is attached to the mainline braid with a PR knot, or use a twisted leader or a wind-on leader.... You shouldn't use wire with poppers, it decreases the strike rate dramatically.
 
Maybe if there is still time, we can meet up at Leeuwkop one Sat arvie and we can go through a few things....

I got the Monster Mesh popping and jigging rods... had a cast with the Popping rod and just hate the sound of a PR knot going through the stupid little tip eye.... why is it that they make such high end rods with such pathetic guides on the end!!?? :swear Shees it makes me :headb. Upgraded all the rods I'm taking with to s16 Fugi's... will at least have peace of mind and confidence to rip a cast when I need to.

Nice Twisty's Reefer, looking good buddy... you must be getting amped mate!

He let me know about that 8000 spool bro, you're welcome to take it mate, dead serious, for your 6000.

And let me know what you need Jig wise, I got you covered.

Nepps thanks for the offer boet... I'll be finalizing my tackle this coming weekend... will let you know if I need that spool.

B8fish- we can get them at MIAS here in JHB... Only problem is that they're over R2000 each....:?

did you see that the guy from the Hook, Line and Jeep show (Richard Eides) fishes with multipliers and nylon.... no braid....!? That Huge Dogtooth we talked about was caught and landed with flippin' nylon and a TN 50! All the theory straight out the window!:?

Was that doggie not on a TN50, with 100lb Suffix braid and a jigging stick. Just check it for me.
About that 8000 spool, I'll get back to you about a price from one of my "connections".

You may be right about the Doggie?

But on another thread INSIDE!! (Richard) talks of his standard setup as being a multiplier and nylon...!

I'm also looking for a 20000 spare spool... it fits the Stella 10000... so let me know bud. Also very interested...
