Some of you will no doubt say "I knew that", but the rest of you will
be as amazed and grateful as we all were at the recent fish-in.

I confess that I don't know who brought the idea with them, but
whoever it was, YOU DA MAN! [:D]

It's so simple it's almost painful.

How to remove blobs of bream slime from your line:

1. Get the line under tension (hook held in something and pull taught)

2. With one finger, 'ping' the line like plucking a harp.

All gone! - It's quite miraculous!

Try it for yourself.

Just make sure you are wearing goggles of some description so it doesn't 'ping' you in the pork pie![:D]
Could also leave you looking like someone in the final scene of one of those undesirable movies that i understand are avaliable[:D]

The line actually pings itself out of the blobs which then drop
straight down. Summat to do with inertia I reckon.

Snot difficult to do muskie.[;)][:D]



I heard on the radio the other day that chemists sell something that you use on Babies called "Snot Suckers"......I wonder if they would work on Bream slime too LOL[:D]

So it doesn't 'ping' you in the lie? I think you mean eye Simon [^] [:p] [:D] [:eek:)]

But yep, the plucking does work, it's more annoying having to do it with eel slime though i might add! [xx(]

bream only flip about in the keep net if the are any other bream slime deposits from other fish so try to shake it off every fish this will aid less frantic hook removal

We were talking about de-snotting the hooklength NOT the FISH. LOL[:D]

A bit of each I think. Firstly, inertia keeps the blobs still while
the line pings out of them, then gravity takes over and they fall.
