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:

Bloody nice. I have an older 3000 CI4 plus a new 1000 CI4+. Love them.

Just received some new Atomic Hardz shad 40 & 50 hard body lures that I ordered last week that I picked up for $11-95 ea (normally $17-95)..  haven't tried this design out on the trout yet so I'm hoping they'll suck in a trout or two.. I do have them in the Ghost gill brown (shad 40 & 50) & Muddy prawn (shad 40) models and they have worked okay.. so here's hoping these will too..

cheers

Adrian

Dunno whether this comes strictly under the heading of "Latest Fishing Purchases", but I'll go with a fairly tenuous connection anyway! Picked up one of these when I was down at Homewares Direct today:

http://www.homewaresdirect.com.au/swissmar-shucker-paddy-universal-oyster-knife.html

Will be interesting to compare it to what has always been my "Go-to" (i.e. Dexter-Russell Boston S120), but the dude who designed this one has "form", as you might say:

Bought a couple of commercial quality knives and an iki jime spike.  Victory 220mm and 250mm blades.  I found it hard to get this quality locally, MBSA doesn't have much stock to choose from and couldn't find any elsewhere of brands I would seeking.

The spike looks good, I had bought a hookem version but it's not straight and not really to my liking now I've tried it, this one is a chinese one but looks solid

Cheers

Hope this is not taking this topic too far off-thread, but as someone who appreciates a good knife (in particular what the Japanese craftsmen produce), I love seeing what these guys are doing:

https://www.chefsarmoury.com

Some works of art there...

Did you get them online?

G'day knackers

Yep online from https://www.marine-deals.com.au

The knives were 33 and 34 dollars and the spike 8.50, plus 10 bucks postage.  I ordered them on tuesday arvo, the knives must have been out of stock and the tracking showed them leaving from NZ (where their made), then to Melbourne and received them on friday morning.  Toll, outstanding

My choices were very much helped by this guy, his filleting demos and tutorials are outstanding.  Also what knives I already use.  I was unable to find any of the diogenes knives
