    I still dont tie a snell using the method Mr Pro does & certainly never slip on a protection sleeve. But he is the Pro & I'm not.....His method just looks at bit awkward but there are many ways to tie a snell. I do at least 8 wraps around the hook shank. Each to their own...

    Also looked into reel storage ideas as mine was a bit messy - the fancy photo From the Pen fishing page is taken on an angle to make it look more compact than it is.

    Decided to just stick with the mess😀

    Out till 3am not catching Jewies😉

    If you are looking for tools and are looking to do more diy -and dont want to spend a million bucks -  just bight the bullet and get a combo kit - much cheaper than buying piece by piece  - Ozito cordless arent up to scratch - they lack power across the range in my experience - but Ryobi one will take care of alot of DIY - and the 6 year guarantee is real - anything breaks - just take it back and get a new one on the spot (At Bunnings - not sure about other shops returns policy but Bunnings is very painless).

    Ryobi make 100's of tools that work with the same batteries and the tools are cheap and good. Not trade quality but great for diy home use. I mainly work with pine and Ply and they can chew through that

    Unfortunately this kit used to come with a jigsaw but no longer does. Even the tools I didnt think Id get much use out of become favourites after a while.

    If you are handy with tools etc, you can easily make one from timber. Otherwise, if you cant be bothered then just buy one like the one on Anaconda. Can always spray can paint if you dont like the colour.  For $30 bucks each you cant go wrong for portable units & a can of spray paint.

    I would never do it like that. Always snell both hooks along the shank of the hook both the same way & certainly not through the eye of the hook. Just my preferred method that has never failed me. I even snell Size 12 long shank hooks for Gar the same way (not that you need to for Gar).

    I adapted an old Ikea clothes rack. Using velcro cable ties up top. The attached picture is how I have mine set up.
    They have them from $25 for a double sided (for rods) and on rollers. So easy to move around and access both sides. https://www.ikea.com/au/en/p/rigga-clothes-rack-white-30231631/ 
    You may be able to modify to suit your customised needs.

    I haven’t had a snell fail yet 
    only possible issue is if you bind it the wrong direction around the hook eye  or your hook eye has particularly sharp edges 
     
    i just tie the simple version like Lee Rayner

    Just put them next to a decoy 1.5 - fat wire is strong wire - and for $5 you'd get around 200 clips instead of 13

    Also swapped the balls for barrels as I was worried about the balls getting in the way
     
    also switched to the hacksaw after someone mentioned health concerns with the grinder and lead fumes
     
    the smaller ones are 2 gram and the biggest is 10  - the middle are 7 gram

    Yeah anything that mimics a gar wouldnt be a bad place to start.

    But colour shouldnt be a huge deal - the lures we used to chuck for pinkies were a mix of pinks - browns, and pumkin colour and they had no problems hitting those.

    I have watched them shadow huge schools of 3 inch sliver bait while diving - I imagine with a mouth that big and cutting teeth that sharp - everything is on the menu.

    Plastics this summer from the boat has completely smashed any metal or hb I've tried ! Ya do loose a few to bite offs but your getting heaps more hits etc!!! A few plastics I use are the squidgy poddy mullet around 80mm size , drop bear think that's the name of it , white one with orange throat and a black spot! Anything in pilchard colour should work! Try get the stealth pro bream jig heads coz they have a longer bigger hook so less bite offs! You can change up your retrieve from a slow wind to normal twitches and pause, as most hits are on the pause as its sinking back down just watch your line like a hawk while doin this! Best time has been on the run in tide for me, and also in very shollow water anywhere from Marino to Hallet cove! Oh and ive been using 12 lb fluro carbon leader, sometimes still not thick enough for bite offs!Good luck!
