    IVAN MARKS my hero .



    Hello Jamie, I need some advice , when going for specimen carp at my local canal in Greenford , should I use a 2oz or 3oz lead?

    • Hi GW,
      To be honest both will be fine. I prefer to use a 3oz lead for 2 reasons.
      1. I want the hook to tighten to the lead as soon as possible during the take. A 3oz lead would have no problem in ensuring the hook point pricks the lip of the fish making it difficult for it to eject the bait. In addition, the Grand Union Canal will be subject to a lot of boat traffic. A 3oz lead will prevent your rig from being pulled off the spot as a barge comes through your swim.
      TOP TIP:
      Always use back leads on the canal, it allows the boats and barges to go over your lines without wiping them out. Also consider other canal uses. I have heard horror stories of damaged rods etc as cyclists race down the path. Keep you rods at an angle, tight to the waters edge and put a bait bucket etc a few yards up from where you are fishing. This allows others sufficient room to pass without breaking your gear and the bucket will hopefully act as early warning that you are present.
      Tight lines
