  1. Fish farm

    Fish Farm?
  2. Attaching a SP or HB

    Not disagreeing with your method but not sure how you can have a 2 metre leader and not run it through the guides (maybe im missing something here) also surely an albright knot is the most KISS friendly (one knot instead of 2)
  3. Attaching a SP or HB

    Re leader length, i do similar to above but not quite as long. i like to make it so the albright knot is just off of the reel when about to cast so depending how much line you want hanging out the end of rod to cast comfortably will dictate the length of leader. i dont change lures too much and if i do i try and waste as little line as possible.
  4. Boat Street Parking in Sydney

    Good idea mate 👍 one of my customers “rents” a spot on her lawn for a neighbours vehicle in exchange for some weeding in her gardens.

    They look good, ive only eaten mullet raw, well cooked in lemon juice in a dish thats very popular with pacific islanders, coconut cream, chilli, onion, raw mullet and lemon juice, im sure theres other ingredients too but ive never made it myself so not sure what. its delicious and the mullets great like that. dont even remember what they call the dish but its goooood.

  12. Boat Street Parking in Sydney

    Same here, must you live in an apartment? so restrictive, i would rather move out west and deal with traffic or public transport than live in the big smoke in apartments. my brother lives in apartment and ive had his second vehicle on my lawn for 5 years 🙁 each to their own i guess but its not for me, a man needs a boat, 4x4, car, and trailer lol.
  13. Crikey!

    Yeah i live not too far from chippo and have heard stories about the horses from warwick farm and the dogs too, i knew they were there but seeing it really makes it real lol. ive heard if the conditions are ok they will travel 100s if not 1000s klm upstream so yeah the only thing stopping them going further is the weirs so yes im sure they get upto audley too Yowie. top predators!

  22. juno point flatty!

    Gday mate, what a catch! so close to the magic metre mark lol. well done letting her go too, the hawks needs all the help it can get, one tip mate, try not to hold them up by the mouth like that, get your hand under her belly to support her weight. i know they van be scary at that size but if your gentle they will be quite calm. also if you can, try using a glove instead of the bogas, try like in pic for photograph too (looks awesome lol)

    Lol andrew “the billboard” ettinghausen cant stand to listen to that guy lol.

    Hearing ya mate, i havent read the new regs but your making good points. Should just ban people leaving their homes as its such a dangerous state nsw.
  25. Blackfish Floats

    Very nice and i like the idea of weighting them too. 👍
