    Fluro carbon.

    I use Seaguar Riverge Fluoro with any problems but agree it is expensive compared to mono. For French nymphing and using a dropper, i have found that using a tippet ring (2mm) to be the best method and using a clinch knot to secure all 3 pieces of Fluoro.

    How to fish flying c's

    I use single barbless hooks and have done so for the last 3 years as a result of my local river banning the use of trebles or doubles. The river keeper actually checks that you are using single barbless!

    How to fish flying c's

    What works for me is as follows:- 20lb braid mainline to a Sharpes bb swivel (never had any issues with them) then 18 inches of Maxima 15lb mono reduced to 12lb in summer, to a swivel-link.
