I think you got my reason for using a quick
link rather than a tuna clip if you are attaching to the middle of the float line. If the fish gets loose and takes more line if you are using a tuna clip, it takes your gun down into the kelp. If you use a quick link, the line runs through the link until it hits the float on the end.
Admittedly I’m being anal. It’s probably fine clipping to the middle of the line about 99 percent of the time. And of course it only maters if you shoot fish and I don’t seem to do that much any more.
