    Old days

    Hi gents, how things have changed but stayed the same. Overseas and came across some guys fishing rocks near a heap of surfers on beach. They had portable shelters set up. Looked like a shanty town with rods and stuff everywhere!! ....Walked out to the point and their gear was pretty average. Wasn't expecting much.. No Stella's or tiagras etc..have a chat and...... So they have a 25kg and 30kg GT in an esky.....they were using old looking rods and pen senators that wouldn't get a mention in Aus in the same sentence as GT. So they had anchor rods where they cast a heavy sinker close to drop off (15ft to 100ft)and snag it. Then slide livies on fighting rods with a simple release line...

    Port Stephens reds.

    For sure. Best thing was the day before my mate got one at 86cm and gave it to us all night until I knocked this one on the head! Got to love Coffs...

    Port Stephens reds.

    My biggest snap at 87cm was hooked just under a school of baitfish up north. Expected a tuna or sonmething because it was so high up....

    Good deals on a fly reel?

    Mate, For bream and bass you don't need anything expensive. You will fight them with your palm./fingers./hand. Seriously don't go over board as most of the time you won't even get to backing for those species. Fly lines you are going to get stung though....summer time was a floating for bass and for bream an intermediate...

    A Tough few days on Lake Jindabyne.

    Ok, with 4 on board we would run 8 lines. Generally our lead lines or downriggers lines when they came along more often had flashers as they were deeper. But these were a tad larger than a Celtic blade. Two flat lines off boat then the rest off planer boards. Pretty much tassie Devils with flouro beads and mono straight through as no braid then!! Shit I am old!! RApalas painted to spotted dog worked well at certain times of year. I can't remember what we use to troll that we used a plastic keel in front to stop line spin. Have to ask old man.....

    A Tough few days on Lake Jindabyne.

    Hi, Back in the day we would tie a fly of choice to the tassie devil hook which was often hit. Also used mini cowbell set ups at the front...spinner blades on a wire to attract fish. Not sure if any of this is being used these days.. Cheers, brent
