Hi all.

As we all know it is very essential and crucial to cast in the same spot when re baiting or recasting.
This is done to create a feeding spot with our groundfeed or "mieliebom" where the carp can be interested and then find our hook baits and then bobs your uncle! Now some of you out there may not be able to keep on casting in the same spot over and over again. now this is how its done: On your first cast, cast as normal and after the bait hits the water, reel up the slack as usual. You will then see on the reel there is a "reel clip" or "line clip". This is usually used to stop the line from coming of the spool.
Once you've reeled up the slack clip on your line onto the clip and when you ready for your next cast just reel your line up as usual and then cast.
The clip will allow you to cast again in the same spot.
P.S this is ulra important: when you get a bite and you are using the clip method, please ensure that you take the line off the clip because if the fish tries to pull the line it won't be able to and the line will snap

Most modern reels have a clip which looks like this...

Or run in to dam if you cant get the line un clipped in time.

We used this method for over 20 years with success in comp angling.

I personally think it will take a huge fish to snap the line. I've casted for some distance, forgetting about the clip, and the line did not snap. And this has happened to me on more than one occasion. I also think the slack that you reel in is more than enough to cater for a reel run, that is if you are close to you rods. Otherwise, just stand a little bit back from the edge of the water, cast, and reel in the slack and the distance you stood from the edge of the water.

Naruto, ek het jou verloor daar lol. ek gebruik 7lbs lyn, maar kan nie se dat ek meer afstand kry vandat ek oorgeskakel het van die 5lbs na die 7lbs.

Wat ek wel kan se daarvan is dat ek maar steeds breek maar minder as die 5lbs  as jy haak.

Cast aksie, Naruto lag ook maar vir my maar ek kan nie oor die kop gooi nie. Pendulum aksie oor die kant van die skouer (Amper soos Spiesgooi).

Ek gebruik nie die line-clips nie, ek het nog nooit geoefen hoe nie en die kere wat ek hulle wel probeer het, het die lyn gebreek as ek hasrd cast. Naby hengel briek ek hom bietjie as ek geclip het deur die stok se punt te lig.

What I can say is that I still get broken off but less than with 5lbs if you get stuck.

Cast Action, Naruto laughed at me too but I can not do the overhead cast. Pendulum action over the shoulder (Almost like Javelin).

I don't use the line-clips, asI've never practiced it, but the times I have tried them, the line broke when I cast hard. Fishing closeby and clipped in I stop the line with the rod raised and then dropping the tip.

not too sure if I am getting this "clip in" right, i clip in my line to stop it from running off the spool when I am putting my reels away for the day after fishing, my problem is that the clip always leave a mark on the line and I always cut this away as i believe the clip weakens the line, am I pulling it too tight into the clip? will this not also weaken the line when you cast and then clip in to cast the same distance for the next cast?

Well generally if your line is quite thick it will fit snugly in the clip..how many lb line are you using and also try not to clip in too tight

There has been lots of discussions on lines, and it is said the thicker your line, the less distance you will get.

It is also said that fish pick up the bait easier if you use thin line. The more competitive guys swear by using thin line.

Thicker line is used in places where there are more snags.

I replace my leaders after each session ;)

Well after you cast you should be reeling in your slack so that you can attach your fish bite alarm ir polisieman...that should be enough for a good reel run if the fish is pulling more than that then its a monster or your drag is way too loose
