  3. Manufacturers set the eye of their hooks at a particular angle to aid with hook penetration when tied with a standard through the eye knot - changing the angle of pull can assist penetration with certain rigs or make it less effective. If your hook is designed to have best penetration at a certain angle of pull - you need to understand the angles before changing them and have a good reason to do so.
  4. I’ve been busted off at northern sand flats on low tide. Tore my swivel off. maybe I didn’t tie my swivel on well enough or just a large fish.

    I still dont tie a snell using the method Mr Pro does & certainly never slip on a protection sleeve. But he is the Pro & I'm not.....His method just looks at bit awkward but there are many ways to tie a snell. I do at least 8 wraps around the hook shank. Each to their own...
  11. Heres a vid that explains why running the leader back through the hook eye can be advantageous - especially with circle hooks

    I will have to play around to try and do that. Mine look like @yellow door 1 photo. The trace goes through the eye.
  13. Closure time: 14 May 2022 to 13 May 2023 Closure location: Spencer Gulf from the Mean High Water Springs closest to 33°55’39.942”S 136°34’20.131”E (near Arno Bay) to the Mean High Water Springs closest to 33°55’39.942”S 137°37’14.527”E (Wallaroo Jetty). https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/fishing/closures_and_aquatic_reserves/fishing_closures#toc5
  14. This was my 1st thought. Has happened to me more than a few times when snelling up KGW rigs on lighter FC (<20lb). I imagine it's not so much an issue with thicker FC, but the lighter stuff doesn't take much, especially under tension. @Des Hope you manage to figure it out.
  15. PS - if you need any tips on how to make your first work bench - just ask
  16. Also looked into reel storage ideas as mine was a bit messy - the fancy photo From the Pen fishing page is taken on an angle to make it look more compact than it is. Decided to just stick with the mess
  17. What ? The photo? That's mine in the garage.
  18. Theres plenty of stuff lying around the house that can be converted too
  19. Saw that one on Pinrest this morning.. wouldn't take much to knock up.
  20. Out till 3am not catching Jewies If you are looking for tools and are looking to do more diy -and dont want to spend a million bucks - just bight the bullet and get a combo kit - much cheaper than buying piece by piece - Ozito cordless arent up to scratch - they lack power across the range in my experience - but Ryobi one will take care of alot of DIY - and the 6 year guarantee is real - anything breaks - just take it back and get a new one on the spot (At Bunnings - not sure about other shops returns policy but Bunnings is very painless). Ryobi make 100's of tools that work with
  21. Bit late to the party... Been down the tip raiding supplies? I like that 3 peice one you made. Maybe later down the track when i have the tools and maybe even a work bench. Still need to sort that out since moving in.

    Not really that interesting but I will take a photo. Just the way I was originally shown.
  23. Have you got a photo of the way you do it- sounds interesting
  24. A $4 can of Fiddly bits Matt black from Bunnings can work Miracles
  25. That style you bought is also easy to attach to the side of a storage tower
