I have an idea for shock leaders I dont see talked about here or, published in the library. I've done a lot of limb, and bank lining, and I've had a lot of lines broke, or the hooks straightened out. I started using rubber strips cut from car inner tubes, or cut lengths of bicycle inner tubes for shock leaders. usually 8-10 inches long. It seems to help with hook-ups, and I've experienced fewer broken lines, or bent hooks. i just tie a 2 foot length of braided line to one end of the rolled up strip, for the tie-off. and the other to the drop. you guys can develop your own patterns, or tweak it to your liking. just thought i'd drop the idea out there for anyone that might like to try it. seems to work for me.
