    Cupping some water over the spool to ensure the braid is well wetted before you cast should stop those wind knots completely..

    I'm a braid user, but mostly for Barbel on the tidal Trent. That said I always use a leader. What I have found though for distance braid isn't the answer. It's a mistake if you think braid is thinner. When you measure it the micrometer flattens in giving a false reading etc. Most good braid is now 8 strands and after use the braid is caught by the wind when casting and slows the lead down. Far better using a good mono with a leader it casts an he'll of a lot further.

    Cheers mate.
    Dave I'm 95% sure it was Wychwood Pike braid, it's like a 2 tone green colour, quite an open weave. I found 5 spools in a bargain bin somewhere and grabbed them all! Boxes are long gone now as I filled all my spools with it a good couple of years ago.
    You won't snap the 25lb stuff I have with a rod!
