Cheers

My rig:
30lb to 50 lb braid (overkill, mainly use it for when the xos cobes turn up) to a swivel (collar and capstan knot) to 60lb mono to swivel to 58lb single strand with haywire twist to a pillie rig.

Nice fish Chris - if anybody deserves it it's you, considering the hours you put in!
Careful Dave, don't jinx me as well - if i get a good one i'll rub it in big-time ;-)
If you woke up this morning - you have another chance....

Collar & capstan? Haven't heard of that one before. Doesn't seem like an easy knot to do on the fly in the kayak from the directions I saw.

Have you used palomar knots? I always do two wraps of the loop before putting it around the swivel. Never had one slip or bust, but I haven't fought a 1+ metre mackerel yet... I've only snagged the bottom & broke other parts of the rig. Never the braided knot.

Hey Kris the collar and capstain gets easier and is much stronger than the palomar when tied to a swivel.

Nice Chris,

I have to make all my rigs again after the awesome Monday session. Ended up with 2 big fellas in the box, and got dusted 3 times. The last one chewed straight through the wire after he took 100m of line.

Hopefully see you guys out there when the weather and work gods align again. Bill.
