  • backleads

    Can anyone tell me what situation i might need to use backleads on a commercial fishery & how best to use them as i never have used them before?

    Unlikely you would need them,thier main use is to keep most of the line between the rod tip and the lead/feeder pinned to the bottom,this is often used by specimen anglers to stop fish spooking from the line,it can also help avoid line bites and is useful if fishing from a high bank and can help if boats or waterfowl might snag your line.
    Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

            I hate backleads with a passion and with a tight line and backlead your line will never be flush to the deck. If you look at a backlead there is usually a good inch or so from the actual back lead to where you connect your like there for your line and leader will be an inch off bottom, not even to mention about shelves that might be positioned out in the lake. Slack lines, all the way!!!
            The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but obtainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

                even slack lines will be off the deck, the only way of knowing if your line is flat to the deck from rod to bait is to get underwater and have a look. Back leads are a godsend when used correctly.

                  I use them all the time and swear by them and at some venues even use two to pin them down even more . Also helps you from getting a fish go through your other rods when being landed
                  Give it a rub and it might do something !!!!!

                    Easier with a flying backlead as opposed to two clip on backleads

                    Yes Scorpio you have a point especially with the obstacles in front of you from tip to lead.

                      i see where you're coming from about the backleads but with slack lines, if a fish comes towards you then you're gonna get little or even no indication that you've got a fish on as your line is already slack. All this crap about line following the contours of the lake bed is a load of crap. We all know it's just another way of getting cash out of the carp anglers. Personal preference i think. However when i do occasionally fish slack lines i still put a backlead on so i know that my line is as close to the deck as possible!

                      Tight lines!
