Really nice fish!

as an aside, you blokes in the know with all this new line types might be able to clear this up for me, am I right in assuming a \"6lb\" braid or fireline means it is the same diameter as a normal 6lb mono line, but would be actually be a much higher breaking strain?

6lb fireline is the same dia. as 2lb mono... they measure the firelines breaking strain at the knot (if using a palomar knot)... so if you buy 6lb fireline it's actually 6lb and isnt reduced by the knot like normal mono would... thus meaning that if there was no knots in your line the 6lb fireline would be around 8-10lb... i hope everyone understands :P

yeh its one of the most simplest knots around... and its pretty strong... u just make a loop through the hook eye then line a granny knot with the line doubled over and bak over the hook... heres a link which will help alot...
