Got myself a Korda cruzer and works fine apart from it puts hook length under water where it joins causing the whole hook length to then sink pulling bait next to it and about 3 foot of line under too. Is there any thing you can use to stop it sinking without resulting to buying owt fancy. Reason being going out again tonight but won't be able to get to buy anything fancy if that makes sense

cheers

In an emergency you can use the grease on the skin on the side of your nose[xx(]

Sounds disgusting but it works a treat.

Old trick from Chris Ball the carper and angling historian.

Mucilin and Vaseline are the traditional methods.

I've heard good things about that new Korda floater line, I usually tie my hooklinks up with the Fox Zig/Floater line which is very bouyant.

Just what I was going to say and it actually goes quite far, for so little.

I have a tiny tub of vaseline in the box too that I use for the tips of my pole floats which also comes in handy to grease the line up! Works great on a normal hook length too when fishing on the pole you can slow down your hook bait a little bit with that stuff...
