    First Fish on Fly

    I use a 5wt for trout, and 8wt for salt. A 7 will be fine, you may find it hard to cast a heavy fly tho. Not sure if your using a tapered leader then tippet. - ( another leader) that might help with your casting. Snook is a good target to start off with. Abundant and agressive. Personally i would do a few lesson with an instructor. I have a number if you want it. Theres more to just casting. Line management etc. Il meet you for a trout session in the hills if your keen. Got comfortable waders ?

    Snapper/ small kings. Sick of getting busted off
  14. Trying to keep all my wires nice and tidy, looking for some kind of clip. Any ideas folks ? Someone has mentioned p clamps. Which will require drilling. Something sticky would be ideal. But i guess after a few wet wash's the sticky will fall off. What do you do ??

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Nice job, controlling the heat is very hard in such a small smoker. I personally highly recommend a wet brine over night as it holds moisture. But i also love it when its over done and has some jerky chew too it. Each to there own! Practice, practice..

    Keeping sounder wires tidy

    Nice all good options there. Like the sounds of flex conduit. But it will still need to be attached somehow.

    YFW fillets

    Just try a saucepan lid that will fit in your pan. Push it hard for 5 seconds. Then let it rest on top whilst cooking. Ive been tought to cook fish 90% skin down 10% flesh down, so your not loosing moisture. Depends how fussy and anal you are i guess, Fish is fish.

    YFW fillets

    Any decent seafood resturants use weights. Alot of fish will curl. When i cook any fish weather it be whitting or garfish il use a saucepan lid and push hard on the fish skin down. Creating contact with the skin and pan. Crispy skin. No curling.
