So far it's all down to elastic choice so it seems, but l believe some of the problem is down to anglers striking and waiting to see how big the fish is which in my mind is totally wrong.
I fish for big tench along the margins and l use slik set pingy . When l strike it's a 3 metre quick pull round not upwards and if a smaller fish is hooked it usually gets a flying lesson.
I catch good sized tench and many carp in this fashion and lose very little tackle or fish to reeds or rushes.
