So once again, it was a cold morning start at one of the urban canals somewhere in the East Midlands (England). Despite the low temperatures, conditions were actually quite decent, in fact good. To start with, surface pressure had remained reasonably high throughout the morning till afternoon. Surprising, for such cold start and frost the night before, the water wasn't really cold. With the temperature warming up slightly towards the afternoon, that could only mean one thing... Spinnerbaiting!!!

Serenity of the morning before the Sunday morning city 'chaos'.

Although the conditions were fairly good, the fishing was otherwise. In fact, I've fished that canal before and it's just one of those places where bites are hard to come by (I wonder why...). Couple that with the generally clear water, you'd want keep your line out of sight of the fish as best as possible. Although theories suggest that line visibility isn't really an issue if you're fishing reaction baits, but in pressured waters (such as the one), things can be different. As for me, in conditions as such, fluorocarbon lines remains my 'go to' line. As for that occasion, it was the Sunline Siglon 100% Fluorocarbon line.

Product on test: The Sunline Siglon 100% Fluorocarbon line. It's actually one of Sunline's most well know product the world over.

As with most fluorocarbon lines from Sunline, on the water performance is first class. Line management's a bliss and so too was casting and pitching. Now, this is an area where fluorocarbon lines excel if you're fishing at depths because it sinks and actually helps get your lure to go down where you want it to be.

So, in cold conditions when you have to fish deep for those active fish, make sure have the right gear with you, importantly fish with the right line because you either catch that one fish or you don't. Make that switch and switch to fluorocarbon.
