  1. Our wind farm on the North West coast of Tassie will re-direct it to Victoria doobie.. well, that's my theory anyway.. cheers Adrian..
  2. Looks like the worst of it may have missed Adelaide at this stage.. https://www.weatherzone.com.au/radar/sa/adelaide/128km https://www.weatherzone.com.au/sa/adelaide/adelaide
  3. Certainly doesn't look all that good.. depends on how much rain comes with it for the rivers/streams etc, the wind is going to be the main problem.. massive high tides too.. stay safe guys.. cheers Adrian
  4. It's certainly changed along the upper reaches of the Torrens River with so much of it being off limits which is a shame.. I'm sure your mates would be happy to let you put some fingerlings in their dams.. cheers Adrian..
  5. It's definitely an impressive looking system on the Satellite. http://satview.bom.gov.au/
  6. Just came across this weather warning for SA an hour ago.. doesn't look all that good .. Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds and abnormally high tides for people in Adelaide, Mount Lofty Ranges, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Kangaroo Island and parts of West Coast and Murraylands districts. BoM: "A deep low pressure system centred south of the Bight will move eastwards to be near Kangaroo Island on Thursday morning and over western Victoria later in the evening. Strong to damaging northwest to westerly winds, a
  7. I've put a couple of size 1 anti-kinks and a few small spiral swivels & snaps in a envelope for you which I'll drop in the post tomorrow Steve.. cheers Adrian
  8. Anaconda & BCF stock them.. Nearest to you would be Modbury or Gepps cross for Anaconda & BCF. BCF stock them here instore too.. https://www.anacondastores.com/fishing/fishing-lures/inline-spinners https://www.bcf.com.au/fishing/all-lures/inline-spinners cheers Adrian
  9. Not that I know, sometimes called keels.. found this at BCF online.. Anaconda have them too.. The ones I but don't have the snap swivel on them.. not sure what sizes are available there either. https://www.bcf.com.au/p/wigston-anti-kink-keels-5-pack/218858.html https://www.anacondastores.com/fishing/fishing-lures/lure-accessories/tasmanian-devil-anti-kink-keel-5-pack/90077555?gclsrc=aw.ds&gclsrc=aw.ds&gclid=Cj0KCQjw5auGBhDEARIsAFyNm9FHpLPn44dqvx5MhBgHhbEaqqlOfnXjLo8NRUqeENyhfSo-77n8CU0aAv-FEALw_wcB Cheers Adrian
  10. Trout in locals dams, very nice & good on'ya... I gather they're rainbows too, very aggressive and they grow big in dams as well. I used to fish a couple here in Sheffield & Barrington, best rainbow I caught in that was 9 lb.. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun fishing them.. All good Steve, let me know how you get on with the anti-kinks.. cheers Adrian
  11. Thanks doobie, I don't get line twist when using the anti-kink, without them the line does get some minor twisting that eventually worsens the longer I fish without the anti-kinks. I'm interested to see how the small roller bearings will go when I test the new setup without the anti-kink, it would be great if this works. I'm not all that sure about the second anti-kink setup with the roller bearing, even though it's small the added weight may not be the way to go. Only time will tell I suppose.. cheers Adrian..
  12. Yes, very lucky having so many rivers/streams to choose from down here Steve, this little tannin stream is on private property & I'm lucky enough to have around 3-4 kms of it all to myself thanks to a very kind landowner. Blade spinners can create line twist quite easily on most brands of mono lines, some worse than others, even more so with fine line., As you know I use a ultra fine 4 lb Ultra High Tenacity clear mono with a 6 lb leader with the anti-kink and I never have any problems with line twist.. I picked the anti-kinks up from local tackle stores here in Devonport. The ones I have
  13. With the trout season closed until the 7th August I thought I'd put a few of my 2020/21 trout fishing videos on the site from time to time... Hope you enjoy it, feel free to hit the like button as well.. thanks.. cheers Adrian..
  14. Thanks doobie, it was cold alright, finger were burning, yes they're a little rough down here at times the way the y fillet them. Trout are best kept whole & put in a smoker in my books.. not that I keep them any more now days... cheers Adrian
  15. This video was from a trip before the season closed... a very cold morning it was too, that cold the water off the grass froze on my wading boots on the walk to the river.. cheers Adrian..
  16. Thanks Yorky, it is beautiful here in Tassie that's for sure, there's a lot of Sth Aussie in the heart though mate, It will ever go either.. cheers Adrian..
