I’ve been given a new spool of braid, I’ve been wanting to try braid on my spare carp reel spool, but this line is bright yellow , will the colour make any difference?

If it’s for mainline, probably not. I regularly use orange mainline and I still catch fish.

if you want to use it (local rules provided) for hooklinks then I’d be tempted to run a darker felt tip over it. But even that is probably more about confidence. Come to think if it I caught a bream the other day on a very lurid green hooklink.

It’s for mainline, I don’t use a leader so will be straight to bead and hook length
