 Carl Sharp says:
“After a successful year of hauling carp from your local ponds your rods may go into hibernation for a few weeks / months when the weather turns our lakes to ice. As you get the gear back out of ‘hibernation’ and before you head out on the bank again, I would advise that you change your main line, which will no doubt be carrying signs of wear and tear from last year’s use. The last thing you want to do after hooking your target fish is for your main line to let you down.
“Even if you inspect your line carefully and can’t see any signs of damage, I would still advise that you strip off the first 25 to 30 feet of line from each spool, as this is the section that is most likely to have received most ‘punishment’.”
