blooding the new gear

Recommended Posts

I finally bit the bullet and invested in some higher quality gear, the sienna started to pack it in so went for a stradic matched up with a 7"6 balistix rod.

Of course as soon as I get soem new gear it floods so had to wait for the river but finally the water cleared up enough.

The bream were on the chew for a change with lots of hits and misses but finally one stuck and the new rig up was blooded

shortly after working some rocky edge lure gets nailed again this time a nice black spot

almost required surgery to get the lure back but he was released unharmed

managed another reasonable bream from some very nasty shallow rocks

then after some bycatch of small flatties and pike it was off to the tree to try and find some more bream 

second cast and another bream

caught a couple more small bream they were really having a go in the tanin water 

working along the sunken timber the lure was smashed I really like the drag on the stradic being so smooth I can fish much heavier drag and not pull hooks, after a terrifying tussle around the timber out came a solid moses perch another 27cm specimen 20180403_160336.thumb.jpg.9dc0905b3dc45e72d723ae339bcc6923.jpg

they really pack a punch at this size 

that concluded the blooding  can't wait to get out for another go 

cheers for reading

A few nice fish there Dave, I think there's always a bit of extra pressure to catch something on new gear, helps justify the investment.

You'll be very happy with the Stradic, they do have a nice smooth drag.
