    A good mono to mono knot please.

    If using mono line no real need for a leader. I use 3lb straight through fluorocarbon and love it for flicking plastics and hardbodies. If you feel like you need a leader i use the albright knot. Its simple to tie and nice and strong. I prefer this knot as its easy to tie with my chunky fingers...

    Rapala R type reel

    At my time working in the tackle shop i sold countless Daiwa BGs for guys wanting them for a range of species and had all positive feedback from them customers. Only issue i saw was the drag clicker broke but that was replaced. Have seen plenty of Snapper Tuna Kingfish even Sharks caught on them. Even Alan Hawk gives them a great reel! Only downside for me was i love power ball handle knobs. The Daiwa BGs handle knob is riveted. There are ways to get around it but other than that they are a great reel!

    Value for Money you can't beat the Daiwa BG. Being non mag sealed you can service yourself. And being Daiwas Flagship reel parts will be readily available for the next 6 years which is piece of mind. Parts are fairly cheap aswell. They also come with carbon drag washers.

    Where to live

    If I had a choice it would Ardrossan, Moont, Wallaroo, Pt hughes in no particular order. They all have what you need in life and the lifestyle is pretty laid back.

    Nice mate Such cool looking fish! Have seen good fish pulled from quite a few streams around SA well over 50cm... I'm still yet to break the 50cm mark for wild fish. One day when I get more time up my sleeve hopefully! What sort of Gear you running?

    Who's been catching salmon this season?

    Been getting a couple here and there when I'm over Moonta/Wallaroo way.... All on plastics and Hardbodies... Ranging from troutie size to a couple over the 1kg mark.

    Cheers all. Well One week done and dusted. I have learnt alot in the week and am enjoying the experience so far. Only downside is driving into leaving town but its something i'll get use to.

    What would your best all round combo be?

    If you could only pack one setup to do you everything from light bread and butter species right up to large salmon, flatties, mullies etc. Bearing in mind you might be fishing from a range of terrains and situations using both bait or lures. Do you have a setup that you could use for most of these situations? If so what is it??? Interested in hearing if you make it possible or you take a couple rods etc.... Only asking as i usually take to much gear then regret taking it as i never use it all....

    Thanks mate..... There was purely two reasons why I wanted to be apart of the Fishing industry.... To help others with the knowledge i have obtained over the years and giving customers other techniques or ideas when things weren't working out for them. Nothing more satisfying then helping a customer with achieving there personal fishing goals and having them achieving them an hour or 2 later and being grateful for taking time to help them out the best way you can. The second is learning from customers that come in store. Fishing is a wonderful sport where you learn new things everytime and i have learnt alot from customers and i am grateful for that. I was never in it for sponsorship or competition or to big note myself as I loved my job day in and out but it isnt a job that is for someone that hasnt set themselves up. Casual hours and minimum wage doesn't help me purchase a house and setup my future. Who knows what might happen later on in life but definitely see myself back in the industry in the future in some form.... Thanks for your kind words mate...

    So as some of you know I worked at Fishing Wholesalers for the last 2 and a bit years. However my last day was on Saturday. I know there are alot of members on here that i have put onto this site that i wasn't able to let know of my resignation as it happened so quick. So i thank you for being great customers to me. I am no longer in the fishing industry anymore. I might return to it in a few years time if things go right However you will now find me in the electrical industry as a storeman in town. Now to enjoy fishing like i use to without the pressures of the industry Expect more reports me in the near future! The bug is back!
