  1. Hi there everyone , i have about seven rods with missing tips and/or rod guides that i would like to repair but being old and of very little value i do not want to buy anything expensive to cover the threads with , my question is to those of you that have done this before can ordinary wood varnish do the job or do i have to get marine grade varnish , thank you for your reply .
  2. Hi everyone. looking to stock up on quality line (monofilament ), in 4 , 6, 8 , and 12 pound braking strain , i use 12 for rock and beach bait fishing using threadline reels and need a line that helps with distance casting , the 4, 6, and 8 pound i mainly use without any weight at all . i prefer a clear line thinking that it does not frighted fish , not interested in braid , any opinions are welcome , thank you all for reading this

    Snapper from rocks at North Maroubra

    great reel that , have you had yours for a while ? is there much difference in the casting distance you get with this one in comparison with any other long casting reel you have had in the past? (same line, rig , casting method ) reason im asking is because i want to buy one eventually . thanks .

    Brisbane Water this morning

    Hi there, you might want to reconsider using heavier mono, i have fished brisbane waters and i would not use anything heavier then 6lb for pan fish , its also part of the reason why you got so many bites, maybe you should pay more attention to your knots and your reel drag , also how long has it been snce you bought new line , most of us remove the line of our reels once a year or so , also next time you catch a large wirrah try steaming it with ginger and shallots ,

    mulloway madness

    Congrats on the fish, that bait should have attracted bream as well , were you getting any small bites using it ?
