  1. WOW, Sounds like a great session. Many more to come. Congrats.
  2. Nice work James. New rod is working very well. Good stuff.
  3. Very nice, haven't had fresh flathead in a while either. Selling for near $80 per kilo at my local.
  4. Hi Raiders, I found an add for this interesting old reel, just wondering if anyone has had any experience with one. I never imagined an electric reel in the style of a threadline.
  5. Hi Raiders, Went out a few times over the winter months without much success, so instead I've been doing some long walks exploring the greatest natural Harbour in the world. North head, Q Station, Middle Head, Georges Head to Bradley's. Really interesting with some spectacular views. The is from Dobroyd Head last weekend. This morning I had planned to fish the lower Harbour fro Blackfish, but plans changed when I woke up to the pouring rain. I had a good stash of weed I didn't want to go to waste so I decided to try a spot closer to home well into the runout tide. The wind was c
  6. Try Balmoral Baths, between the wharf and swimming enclosure.
  7. Hi Greg, Definately not a Slazenger, more likely and better Snyder Glas or Butterworth. Those vertical flecks, I'm leaning towards Snyder. Looks like it's had a hard life, but well worth restoring. If you want the name of a great rod builder on the Central Coast send me a PM. The JW Mundoo was the first rod I bought for myself in the early 80's for $16 at Norman Ross in Chatswood. It was their 'General Purpose' rod. Top section is solid glass, but I think the bottom was hollow.
  8. I could be wrong, but I thought the 475a had a sidecast function. If you take a few more pictures of the rod, like binding and pattern in the blank I might be able to tell you what it is. I'm thinking it maybe Slazenger.
  9. Nice work James. The move certainly paid off.

    Cheers Neil, all mid 70s First time Elsey was contested. He didn't win. He probably should have spent more on his advertising. Gordon, do you think that's a Charger on the Cahill by the double decker. Renaults were surprisingly popular.

    Good Ol' Days

    Hi Donna, I remember another pic of a labourer at the top of a Sydney highrise maybe AMP building. He's right at the edge, wearing Volleys, Stubbie shorts, no harness and just looking out over the Quay. Its a classic.
