Have been absent from Indian Angler for a long while, now have come back to find stupendous greyhound mahseer gracing its pages. Congrats!!!
(Say, is that Bob Roberts in your team?).
Just my ten rupees worth:
- The 30-lb Fluorocarbon leader seems undergunned. Fluorocarbon flakes easily under abrasion. For Malaysian mahseer, I normally use 40-lb even though it's a mite heavy for the lure. But my personal favourite is Daiwa Crystal Clear, 30-lb. It's almost as 'invisible' as fluorocarbon, it's tougher, and cheaper!
- The issue is the treble. Single hooks of the same gauge are better, obviously lighter and will not bend double or straighten. Gamakatsu and Decoy are good.
- If you insist on trebles for your smaller lures, the only ones I know are VMC 5X, down to size 6.
