  1. Klinchers here. All we have ever used for nearly 15 years - no cable weakening, fraying, etc. Have never lost anything due to Klincher or cable failure that wasn't an operator error. Like taking off full throttle with 13# ball and probe down 80 feet. :@:o

    As Tim said if you are running coated cable (we don't) I have heard you need to modify Klinchers or use something else.


  2. How many of you have entered this?

    Can someone explain how they are going to figure that a 14# Brown will be the "Big Fish" over a 25# Lake Trout?

    From the rules I understand that brown, steelhead, lake trout and salmon are all enterable fish??


  3. Andy,

    I tied some of these up by using a blood knot. We used to use this knot when fly fishing to taper down to smaller pound tippets for finicky trout. Never had one fail on the smaller stream fish. Pretty easy to tie as you are using the same pound/diameter line. Haven't run any for salmon yet. You know they say the knot is the weakest link in the system.
