Old nylon

Rate this topic

16 posts in this topic

Hello.

 

Today, sorting through my too many boxes of fishing materials.

I rediscovered several spools of nylon.

However, these are more than 10 years old, for the younger ones.

I found three new spools dating from the early 1980s, for the oldest...

I keep the oldest spools to use them in the vegetable garden.

But is it possible to use 10 years old nylon in the sea?
 

thanks.

I assume you are talking about Monofilament (just to be clear) Some may say yes, stored properly it may be fine, but I would not, not worth the risk of failure when it is relatively cheap... I would uncoil a yard or two give it a stretch test and a knot test and if it still seems good I would give it to some kid that could use it, if not, keep it for the garden...

Yes, monofilament.

 

Excuse me, but I use common words.

I realize that some English words from the fishing world do not mean the same thing in French.

That's great, I have to find homonymous expressions.

Might be looking towards a new profession. Times are tough

I'd toss it.  Use it for something else.  Unless I could not get more.  Then I would make do.  

 

What part of France?  Lived in Burgundy for a few months long time ago.  Really enjoyed it.

The Stripernut1 gave you some solid advice. Toss it

Hello.

 

Damn, wrong word... again.

 

In fresh water, we fish mainly for carnivores, pike, perch, pike-perch, Danube catfish, trout, eel, chub, salmon and coregone in the mountains.

In short, almost no fish present in America...

 

Black bass can be found in the south of France.

 

In the sea, mainly fishes present in the North Atlantic and those present in the Mediterranean.

 

I live in the east of the Somme department. I live less than 2km from the river Somme and 6km from a beautiful lake. On the other hand, I am 150km from the sea.

 

Speaking of the sea, I have a nice place, not far from the supervised beach, not far from the wilder beach not supervised by the semaphore.

 

On this beach during World War II, the Germans were practicing shooting from two bunkers on a wreck of a bulk carrier.

 

Even today, it is easy to find warheads and cartridge cases in the sand. (7, 15, 20 mm machine guns and cannons)

 

Today the liner is 80m under water and the two bunker are uncovered at low tide. And covered by 20 meters of water at high tide. And they represent a very good spot to fish in the waves.

 

The beach is mostly composed of fine sand and pebbles.

The water is turbid because of the chalk cliffs nearby, the river Somme flows into the sea several kilometers away.

 

On average, the tides have a coefficient ranging from 40 to 90, 110 to 130 for the high tides.

Hello Frenchy

 

We have a couple fish left here in the United States of America

 

Okay as Stripernut1 said if your line was properly stored you may be able to respool with it. My definition of that is, a cool, dark spot, with no exposure to light. He also said give a few yards a pull test and see if it breaks under load, and I have to agree with new line being one of the least expensive items of your tackle. You may get busted off on a great fish, from your weakest

link...:eek:

 

Good luck and tight lines

Damn Frenchy

 

I had to look it up, but I would buy some new line. You have some big cats on your side of the pond

What kind of Pike are in your waters; are we talking 40 - 50 pounders...

Bonjour Frenchy

 

Il nous reste quelques poissons ici aux États-Unis d'Amérique

 

D'accord, comme l'a dit Stripernut1, si votre ligne a été correctement stockée, vous pourrez peut-être la repooler avec elle. Ma définition de cela est une tache fraîche et sombre, sans exposition à la lumière. Il a également dit de donner à quelques mètres un test de traction et de voir s'il se brise sous charge, et je dois être d'accord avec le fait que la nouvelle ligne soit l'un des articles les moins chers de votre plaquage. Vous pouvez vous faire casser sur un grand poisson, de votre plus faible

lien...:eek:

 

Bonne chance et lignes serrées

Hello.

I was telling you that we don't have the same species of fish.

For the old monofilament, they were stored in large black plastic boxes, themselves stored in my attic.

I tested some lines with a dynamometer. All of them resist more or less to the given weight.


 

To catch a Danube catfish like the ones in the picture, you have to fish in some big rivers like the Seine, the Rhine, the Rhône, the Garonne and the Saône.

Where I live we have them, but smaller ones, I caught this little guy last year.

As for the pikes.

We have some very big ones, but mostly in the big alpine lakes, like the lake leman and the big rivers.

The common man catches one or two in his fishing life.

The rest is mostly caught by pro anglers in magazines and by youtubers.

Here is my biggest catch in the last few months. It is a good 90 cm for a few kilos.
