    Thought id go for a fly in hills this morning, first fish, a new personal best. 45cm and over a kilo easy. Pushing 1.5kg. 8 fish in total. Home by 1pm. All on a ruff wooly i tied with some blue flash tinsel. Happy new years
  4. Thats the way, they had 20% off today so i feel as tho its a fair price. Time will tell.
  5. Purchased some large yeti bricks today, sick of d.i.y milk cartons breaking. has anyone put them to use ?
  6. I did a brisket yesterday in it. Smoked for 4 hours to get a crust and then wrapped it up and smoked for 6 hours. Came out amazing. Just put chunks of red gum stumps. No chips. Any tips using the hark Del ?? Cheers
  7. Thats cool ive never seen one. Looks like cross between snook/mullet. Baracoota eyes. Awesome
  8. Thats it everyone has there own method its about finding whats right for you
  9. U need to play around with the smoker and see how much heat it needs. Basically u want the smoke to be raging, but you dont want too much heat otherwise you will cook the tommies with heat before enough smoke has penetrated. Also they need to be brined between 12-24 hrs for flavour and to keep moisture. Once mine have finished i use a pastry brush and brush the flesh with dashi shoyu. A Japanese sauce. U could also moist your chips a little. Or add a big tray of ice cubes under you fish so your keeping them cold agian preventing them from cooking. Its one of those things you need to play around with. Maybe try one fish first and then go from there on how to take it. Basic brine recipe 1ltr water 100 g salt 50 g sugar. Just double or triple recipe etc if need more. I do my brine in the esky outside and throw icebricks in to keep cold over night. Good luck.
  10. Good luck tomorrow Dave, im hoping for a feed of garfish tomorrow morning.
  11. Hey mike, pitty no fish where landed, are you based around the st kilda area ? Probly take the boat out there in couple weeks. Have no idea of the area.
  12. Nice work territory, cant beat fresh YFW
  13. Winds are going to be blowing a southerly tue/wed for myself, should be protected enough at pt hughes to get out. Fingers crossed

    Yes i normally have the same sort of luck and spook the fish but the water was little dirty and some good flow and managed to get behind him and present a decent cast. Thats just a simple wooly bugger ive tied with some blue flash. Probly the hottest session ive had in this location actually. And i only did half my normal run as some rain come through. Defently a bonus at this time of year with some water height. Come summer time and im on my hands and knees trying to get in range of the fish.

    The Hills

    Decided to dust off the sage x this morning (no dust on it), and wet some flies, as the wheathers not appropriate for the boat. Probly 12 or so fish landed, alot of smaller fish that where all fun. All in great condition with fat bellys. And this 38cm horse, spotted from a high bank. Nothing better when it all goes too plan.
