Adie........I only carry 6 leads, the rest I leave in the car. When fishing mobile I have a different ruck sack, with the minimum in it and I also leave the chair behind and sit on the unhooking mat.

The more gear you carry the less likely you are to move swims on a regular basis.

I know what you mean about carrying loads of gear Adam Very Happy

If i'm going to be moving about from peg to peg i take as little as i think i can get away with ( without putting the pike at risk that is Wink )

Nothing worse that lugging loads of tackle about that you probably wont even use lol Which is what most of us do most of the time Very Happy
I'm going to have to give the 4 & 6oz leads a go me thinks Very Happy
I'm always open to anything that might improve my piking skills ( or lack of them lol! lol! )

Nick........I don't think that leads up to that weight have any affect on the fight of a Pike.

Robh......When using lures there can be some leverage affect against the hooks. I don't think this happens with leads of any weight.

Rolling Eyes , you seem to be on a roll with your answers just now adam, is it the time of the month.

a large weight on line must have an effect while playing a fish.

a large weight on line must have an effect while playing a fish.

this effect could be good or bad, for fish or angler, depending how you look at it, and also dependent on outcome of tussle.

lets get some input from a few other anglers expeiences before we draw conclusion.

this coul turn out to be a good subject of debate Very Happy

lol i knew it would get you lot thinking.... in my experience i pull out of fewer fish when using light (1oz) leads than when i use 2oz plus. maybe its more than just when you're actually playing the fish... could it be that when you wind down after a run the greater weight dragging along the bottom as the line tightens somehow affects the way the hooks set?

think you are right "Rob" Wink , i have experienced fish to weight, in total wrong angles when stiking, more so on quick takes, that run like a carp.
ie:fish one way, lead at a different angle, makes you wonder what can happen if a run is left unchecked Embarassed

My own personal veiw is to use enough lead for perpouse, still waters 1 1/2oz, slow rivers 2 to 3oz lead, there,s not may fast rivers i fish,
but when i fish r.Trent for barbel (fast flow) i use 4 to 6oz.
it works for me, so i see no need to change(at present?) Cool

here we go....rob i think opposite,know opposite mate.from my fishing i have a better hook rate from a bigger lead,ie bolt rig.but then depends on where iam fishing?i allways fish the safe leads rigs[the ones where leads can release under presure on 95%of my rigs.in open water leave the rig as shop bought but say snaggy areas cut it down so it release better,semi snag areas dont cut /trim it down.find this suits my fishing an not telling people to suck eggs ect.but i think if a fish is towing a 4oz lead about it wil get tired sooner?or make it more madder?give us your views guys please confused confused
