    Anyone know

    Savage Gear Gravity Minnow?
  2. no, same size limits Have you got a picture? Were these Black Bream Acanthopagrus butcheri ?
  3. How did you go? I haven't fished the Torrens for a few years, but I used to fish near the zoo and the uni. Some years there are heaps but not always. Heaps of carp everywhere in the Murray river at the moment. I usually go to Goolwa or Murray Bridge as they are close to Adelaide. Fresh is better. Stinky bait will work but not necessarily better and avoiding smell keeps the family happy as well as those fishing around you.

  5. Several Hundred to over $1000+ depending on condition. Is yours working? There is one on facebook asking for $1000 at the moment.
  6. SHIMANO STELLA SW. THESE STELLA REELS ARE NOT THE SAME AS THE STELLAS PRICED OVER $1000.00 THEY ARE A LOWER MODEL TO SUIT THOSE WITH A LOWER BUDGET. - Easy Fishing Tackle Same $35 reel sold from a WA store for $226
  7. You can get anything printed on a reel in China These are the same as almost all the other silver sub $50 reels and likely from the same OEM factories with just minor cosmetic changes. One of the clues is the Daiwa air rotor style design.

    Reel servicing is getting expensive. Daiwa is currently $40 a service for standard reels and $70 for high end. They usually drop in new bearings at the first sign of wear at $10+ a bearing. I've paid over $100 a service each reel for my fancy reels. Recently I've been dabbling in the cheaper end of the market, especially for wading and kayak fishing. I've got 5+ years out of a pair of Kast King Sharky reels. They are not as smooth as Shimano or Daiwa but they have survived the saltwater and are still reasonably smooth. Ali Express also has some bargains and I'm sure the s

    BCF stock them. I've only had a play instore and a look online. Similar to the low end Daiwa and Shimano. Solidly built but heavy. As entry level gear it will be fine. For high end ultralight lure fishing they might be abit heavy

    Savage Gear reels?
  11. I don't have the bag anymore as the material eventually broke down. The zip still held up with a freshwater rinse after each trip and some inox spray I got the zip from spotlight from memory and used a large sewing needle and pliers. It looked really ugly but did the job
  12. I've previously used a large zip and stitched it on with some light mono. Did the job ok.

    You'll love the Snowies. I used to fish Lake Eucumbene a bit. Favourite spot was Old Adaminaby. Had some great sessions with upto a dozen trout a trip all around the 50cm mark.

    Welcome David Trout in Adelaide is very niche as the populations are so small and the waterways are tiny. I don't think there are any fly fishing guides locally. There are a few small streams that hold populations of trout, some private dams that are stocked with trout and a rivers up North (several hours by car) that will hold trout. If you are interested in Freshwater natives and redfin then there are alot more options. The trout fishing in SA is nothing compared to the Alpine streams and lakes of NSW or NZ or Victoria. A few questions How long are you in A
