    I made a few 35 years ago. All were extended 6" with a cut off from another rod. I was still using 3 up until a year or so ago. My daughter broke 2 , and my son the other in car doors. I cried !!!! Just replaced them with ugg sticks, Nowhere near as good. but just used for bait fishing . I have 3 superbarra, one was a christmas present to my girlfriend, now wife, 36 years ago. I still have them. 2 spin 1 BC. I now have a garage full of carbon rods !!

    Port Macquarie land based fishing options

    When are you coming up ? You can cross back creek at settlement point, which will give you access to yabbies for bait if you wish, then a couple a km of sandflat all the way back to the town centre on the ocean side of the island.

    How is everyone storing their soft plastics?

    I used to take everything with me. A HUGE tackle box. Have been trying to take only what I need for the outing with me . Plus a few packets of SP's in their packets .
