Show us your Latest Fishing Purchases!

Recommended Posts

C'mon be honest we are all guilty of it! 

 

That's buying new gear! 

 

What are some of your latest fishing related purchases? 

 

As most of you know that I work in the Tackle industry so I am surrounded by it quiet a bit. While I am spoiled for choice unfortunately the pay cheque doesn't allow me to purchase all the things I really want.

 

The biggest advantage however is picking up all the clearance/clear out items before most other people which is a bonus.

 

I picked this Combo up and have been saving for it and i finally picked up the reel yesterday.

 

This will be my new Landbased Bream setup.

The setup is an Daiwa T.D Commander V1 Avenger with an T.D Daiwa Battler 2000. It feels so light and looks so sexy in the flesh. The reel will be spooled up with Unitika Silver Thread Fluorocarbon and will be using this as my hardbody setup.

 

Can't wait to use it! 

 

So what have you recently purchased? Rods? Reels? Lures?

My / our new addition

Expensive but nice new toy.

 

NO More spending for me after $120k that is enough imo that's a lot off fish you can buy. But it is about the journey, the challenge and you know how fresh the fish are. I love the challenge.

Hi Meppstas, those pencil sketches underneath the lures caught my eye in a couple of your images! Are they yours, by any chance?

No Alex, they're some pencil sketches that I googled and put together on  A4, printed it then laminated it, also have some framed as well in my fishing room..

This arrived today, have to clean up my disc brakes on the boat trailer and make sure I take it around the block in future to dry them out.  Had a couple of pads delaminate after getting stuck.  The latest one completely vacated the caliper and left the piston to wear down on the disc  :huh:

This was after getting a new actuator. new brake lines. new calipers only last year.   Always something to do

Cheers

Have not bought it but would like to, a Power Ray

 

1000x-1.jpg

 

1. Setup
The 8-pound drone can run for about four hours on a two-hour charge as far as 98 feet below the surface. It uses sonar to collect data from surrounding objects, which accompanying software analyzes in search of fish.
 
2. Use
The PowerRay relays images to an accompanying handheld controller or smartphone attached via a 150-foot cable. The drone can drop bait near a hook and shine its light to lure fish.

You guys have some good stuff :)

 

Mine are just basic lures, 2 reels and bag, but recent :)

The Fx reels are well priced but no matter what my friends do they cant seem to kill them when loaned out!

 

 

They just keep going Jimmy - got them for $20 each :)

As a part b'day present from my fiancé and a present to myself I went out and got a new toy on the weekend, it's a thing of beauty so I had to share :)

13 Fishing Envy Black 7'1" with 2500 Stradic Ci4+ running 8lb Daiwa TD Sensor braid. It's a pity I'm working this Sunday or I'd be trying it out down at Onkastompa! :angry:

Very nice HLS. I have being eyeing off one of those Stradics in a 1000 size. Would love to know how you find the reel once you have had it for a while and the honeymoon period is over.

I use a 1000 for all my fishing from chasing bream In the port, to Mullies down the Coorong to trout in the hill and even while wading the flats

ive had it for going on two years and it hasn’t missed a beat I absolutely love it

i also have the older fi version which I think is a bit stronger but the ci4+ is just so light

it does get a bit of flex when hooked to larger fish but nothing that has worried me

Exactly the feedback I was after mate - especially given you have had for a lengthy period of time and appear to have put it through some significant paces!
