    Small Daiwa spin reels Vs Shimano?

    Well here's all my light weight trout reels that I use on my Daiwa Presso ULS 1-3kg rods 6' & 6'6'' & Okuma Celilo ULS 1-3kg 6'6'' & 6' rods. Well balanced set ups, reels all filled with a .18 4lb clear mono line.. Very happy with them.. Daiwa Ageas 2004H also have a MX2004H Gekkabijin reel which is much the same as the Ageas This little Crest reel is set up on a Daiwa presso 5'6'' rod for trout fishing small tight creeks & streams Daiwa Revros 1003 & I also have two 2004H ones. Okuma Ceymar C-10 (small reel) Okuma Helios SX20 cheers Adrian
  4. Thanks guys, always something good to look back on in later years when I can't fish the rivers any more I reckon... Hopefully that wont be for a few more years yet.. cheers Adrian
  5. This was a tough spin session chasing wild brown & rainbow trout in the Mersey River.. It was the fast water runs that held the trout today.. thankfully I did manage to catch a few in very humid conditions.. Don't forget to watch the slideshow at the end of the video.. cheers Adrian
  6. This is the video clip of the Leven River report just posted on the Forum (Interstate Section) Full written report & photos are there.. cheers Adrian

    P.b Trout

    Nice brown, well done on the PB too, pretty good session with 8 trout being caught.. Need to get yourself a landing net & a set of digital scales that way you can weigh the fish while it's in the net, then deduct the weight of the net from the total weight giving you the correct fish weight.. cheers Adrian
  8. I don't use their Braid but I do use their thin clear 4 lb Mono, Copolymer & Fluorokote lines for trout fishing.and have never had a problem with it at all,, I have all three of them.,, very thin & strong.. .

    The Port Adelaide River Monster..

    That's exactly what I thought too when I came across it.. never saw or heard anything like it back in all the years I fished the Port River either.. It's got to be a set up for sure..
  12. Is this for real or what, came across it on YouTube.. it's the first time I've heard of this & find it hard to believe.. cheers Adrian
  13. Here's parts 1 & 2 of the video taken when I had a good session in tannin waters.. it's from the article that I posted in the Interstate section on the forum..
  14. I'm sure there will be a large amount of fisho's that turn up for the comp.. all for a good cause too. good luck to all who enter the comp, may the fishing gods be with you.. cheers Adrian
