Hi Thomas

If you can't use boilies try using
Luncheon meat
pepperami
Pellets
Bread
Or even sweetcorn

As for line its hard to say cos in my opinion it all depends upon the type of water, size of fish present & style of fishing.

I use 10 to 15lb BS mono & its only ever let me down once (love to know how big that fish was
)

Incase you don't know how to get fresh water mussels i'll tell you.

Go down the local cut (canal) & reach your arm into the water as far as you can, if you feel along the bankside you should be able to feel the mussels in the soft mud.

grab a few (not to many) if you're going fishing straight away make sure you clean your hands properly then use a pen knife to open the shells, slice the mussel up into odd shapes & put them on your hook

If you can't use boilies why not use uncooked boilies ie paste with the same ingredients as what you would use for the boilies.
The smell will be stronger 'cos when you boil them they lose so of their flavour.
Plus you can mould them to any size or shape you fancy.

Now then Thomas,
I use Fox soft steel mono it has less stretch than most monos also a good Knot strength.it is also ideally suited to a tapered shockleader if you are casting out a heavy weight
If you can't use boillies and nuts try and use Carp Pellets you cant use them on a hair rig or with a bait band. Enterprise Tackle now do a Pop Up Pellet so you can use them in many different ways.

Or if you want to go "international" for baiting, take a look at an article I wrote a few months ago. Click http://anglersnet.co.uk/authors/elton37.htm for it.

No way any of the ideas described there could be banned since almost no one in the UK ever heard of them. LOL

Any South African carpers will be on familiar ground though since US Pack Bait is almost identical to SA Mielie Bom.
