just heard today that every time you go fishing you have to make new rig i.e line from swievel down and hooks except sinker. reason is catching far less fish due to blant point, bit rust, or odeur of previous caught fish.  anyone can confirm this or it just funny talk??

Can confirm that. Whenever we go bottom fishing we always change the rig. Even the line if you had caught a couple of nice fish you are risking that then you loose the fish

I'm guessing this is for bottom fishing or live bait fishing right?

Same for me but only if I caught something that could have ruined the line like for example I caught a nice bream[xilpa] of 750grams on a pole and the line was all bitten by the fish and if I didn't change it I would have lost the other fish I caught afterwords because a 1kg mullet took the bait after it.If you don't catch any nice fish and you have a good line you don't need to change it in my opinion.

I do the same when ever we catch a fish on rods, electric reels and even on long lines we always change the hook and nylon to a new one.

Mark,

I can guarantee you that with my luck If i leave the same line I will catch a very nice fish and will lose it before I can see it's colours.

Nowadays I spend a little more on high quality lines. However then I don't change them. I found Carbotex to be an excellent line, and berkley is also very good. Last year I caught over 100 Lampuki + 100 Tumbrell on the same lines.

that is impressive ciappinu. Do they come in small diameter say 0.30mm? I'm asking because am interested to try them out. By the way what diameter were you using for lampuki if you don't mind asking you?
