it. Well, naming no names (unusual for
me), when I examined some of the
coatings used on some of the leads
now sold, some of them are rougher
that the grainiest grade of sand paper,
which surely could cause some damage. Ok it’s nice to have a lead that is
nicely camouflaged, but if the coating
is very abrasive to the touch, is it right
for us to be using them? What do the
rest of you think about this?
Going back to the weedy water
thing; I don’t really think I can add
any more to what the others have
said, especially Laney. I do think a bit
of the responsibility should fall on the
people that control the fishing on the
fishery. Obviously it’s not their fault
that it’s weedy as that’s down to an
act of nature, but I do think that they
should make a boat, or boats available
to help with landing weeded fish.
At the end of the day it’s not only
for the benefit of the angler to get his
trophy shot, more importantly it’s for
the protection of the fish. I remember
back to when I fished Conningbrook.
Although I was lucky enough not to
have ever needed one, there were
always two or three boats available

him land it.
should they be needed, which they
were fairly regularly in the summer
and autumn, including landing
Britain’s biggest ever carp on a few
occasions.
Finally, the only thing I will add is
that I personally nearly always use a
lead clip setup in weedy conditions,
and rather than use your run-of-themill two or three ounce lead, I normally try to use something quite a bit
heavier than this so that it ejects on
the bite, hope this helps, see you all
next time. n
