ASSO Fishing Line

I had a nice surprise waiting at home for me, Richard from ASSO Fishing Line had kindly sent over some fishing line for me to have a play with.


First impressions

Bullet Proof



The texture of the line feels very soft and supple.  I quite like the colour, there is a feel to the line that makes it feel bullet proof.

Ultra Carp



This is a Fluorocarbon line and I just love Floro line.  I am looking forward to putting this through it’s paces.

Floro Casting


Now, this looks very interesting.  One of the draw backs with Fluorocarbon is its inability to cast it very far.  Now with the diameter of this line versus the breaking strain, this could be the perfect combination.  There will be no need for a leader/knot, which does reduce the casting ability of thick line.

High Stretch Fluorocarbon


Now this looks very interesting and I will be giving this a good test.

I will be testing the breaking strains of all these lines and their abrasive resistance, as I lot of my fishing is snag fishing.


About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
