    Knot help please

    I too practiced the Yucatan knot & am fairly confidant that I pulled the knot down really tight so will give it a test in the next couple of days. Anaconda had some cheap metals so I won't be loosing too many $ if the knot fails I tied a few atrocious Kaneit knots so more practice is required. Thanks to everyone for your help.

    I had a look at this one & thought it may be a good option. Which loop knot do you use to get the double in the braid? If it actually rains tomorrow I may have to stay home & practice

    I don't think I am doing this but will check. I've never had a knot unravel on lighter line though. How do you put enough tension on the knots when you pull them tight?

    Yes, its line to line knots. I use a swivel on the rare occasions I bait fish. Salmon mostly, hope to head west for the Elliston comp but anything that lives in the surf. I'll throw a mix of metals & big plastics

    Knot help please

    G'day all, I normally fish with fairly lightweight line & leader, 6 to 10lb but have recently bought an 11' beach/surf rod with a 5500 reel which has 30lb braid, Daiwa bulk & 40 lb leader, Daiwa J thread. My problem is that the knots I had previously been using, Albright or Alberto keep unravelling when casting,. I tried a double uni knot for the same result, looked horrible though, I may have mis-tied it. I don't really want to learn how to tie a FG not so I am after suggestions on what I may be doing wrong or other knots I could possibly try. I will say that the k
  6. Maybe a Rec fishing "permit" could help with that
  7. I like both the Ned rig & the worm hook ideas. I'd probably cut the plastic so that the hook point is closer to the head, that way the YFW or Flattie doesn't need to suck in as much of the bait & should result in more hook ups. Theory only Interested to hear how you go
  8. Maybe, the headlockz one kept rolling over, which it mightn't do with line attached. I haven't had much success with the Crawz as yet but it is early days. Had more luck with the creaturez & crusteaz
  9. Where did you get the last 2, I haven't seen them before? They look the business
  10. Dear science, where the F*** is my hoverboard (apologies to older readers ) Hopefully the pics are clear enough. LHS Nedrig 1/6 oz, RHS Headlockz 1/8 oz
  11. It wasn't a KG but it shows that the Turtleback on a Nedrig works. Now for something bigger
  12. A couple of years ago i got a feed from Henley South , They were all on the float. I used my fishing net to grab em but a crab rake would have been easier, less water resistance. I was wading around the flat near the Torrens outlet flicking plastics so I guess it was run out then run in tides, probably with a large variation between high & low. I've seen people with BBQ tongs in the gutter that runs or ran pretty much from the Torrens to Tennyson. Good luck & let us know if you get any.
  13. Nice office. Can't wait for some warmer weather to get back into it
  14. The packaging suggests 140 yards but the spool isn't full anymore. Whatever it was certainly steamed off
  15. just read dogtooths report, eerily similar
