  1. When i got my 56cm i spent more time trying to get it in the net then actually fighting it.
  2. Nice work.. some great condition fish there! They don't have a whole lot of fight but I've really taken to chasing the Golden's lately. I'm having withdraws already now they have shut the Warren Reservoir
  3. Nice work Allroy! got a 3 good Callop out of there when it first opened to Kayaks. Unfortunately it's been getting hit pretty hard.
  4. I use the Mustad Fastach clip for my Fresh water fishing using bigger lures chasing Cod and Callop and reckon they are fantastic. (Size 3 75lb/41kg) Never considered using them in a smaller size for chasing Bream etc. I like the Decoy 00 for light work they are thin and light weight, i've never had issues with them opening up. Caught most of my PB's using them.
  5. Going to follow on from this as Kelvin is someone in the know and i'm listening to what he preaches! So how is everyone going with it all? Do you still have a job? how is your health? how is your family going now? Did you need to line up for hours at Centerlink? Let it off your chest, it's better in out then in!
  6. I think i'll stick to the FG for now, seems i only just mastered that one.
  7. Geeze i was well off. Still looks awesome. Surprised the Cruiser made it that far
  8. Thinking Almonta or Golden Island?
  9. Shame the LandCruiser had to ruin the pics. [emoji6][emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  10. It's amazing how many slightly different ways people have come up with to accomplish the same knot! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  11. When I was up the river on the weekend I got one of the guys tie a FG on one of my rods while I watched. Being able to see it first hand makes a difference. Just tried it myself and it actually bloody worked first go. Probably not perfect but I'll see how it goes! 15lb braid I think to 20lb mono. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  12. That looks like a fairly easy way to do it... With some of the fish that tank cranks in it must hold up alright.
  13. Cheers for the video dude might give that way a go. Little bit different to what i've been watching. The knot in the braid for holding it in your mouth is a good trick.
  14. Just had a go but seems my teeth ain't good enough to hold the braid for long periods, so will have to scrap that idea. Not going to waste money on a tool, I'll just stick with what i know and inspect the knot from time to time and retie if needed.
  15. Might have a go at the FG Knot after. It is mainly to use on my bait caster set up for Callop/cod if i ever get one. I found my current knot takes a bit of a beating due to the weight/size of the lures/spinners i throw. I actually had one undo last weekend after a million casts and of course i had a spinner bait on so it sunk, if it was a lure i would have floated and i could have got it back. It's not so bad on my Bream set up as they gear i throw is much lighter.
