Can anyone please tell me, why when course fishing do anglers use a stronger main line than the hook length but on rivers the majority of anglers use a stronger hook length than the main line? Just dont get it.
I think that's what the bottle does just gives it a bit more pull.Never tried the bottle approach, but have freed a few snagged feeders on the even by feeding out a large bow as the current takes that downstream and pulls the feeder from a different angle than from where you are fishing.
I have some black plastic vanes; similar in shape; in amongst my Carp bits and pieces which are supposed to lift your lead off of a snaggy bottom on the retrieve if you speed up your retrieve; but I’ve never needed to use them. I bought them ‘just incase’ many years ago when I was fishing a lake which had lots of gravel bars.
