  1. RIP Gary. Hopefully his heirs/successors will be as considerate. As for 'cold' in Tassie... the creeks in the Adelaide hills are turning in to glaciers... Hence the new name for my suburb... 'Bridge-clacier 5155 "...
  2. Gee... you got some good stuff at the dump !!
  3. I'd be too stuffed from blowing it up to go fishing!!! I admire your stamina... can I please have some?
  4. SO... is this from the new blow-up girfriend..?????? KINKY !!!!
  5. We have all been deceived. We have been led to believe ''climate change' meant global warming......
  6. " It was a remote area, so our drinking water was still too important to waste on getting soap out of someones hair" reminds me of a Ronnie Barker tv skit. He was a Britsh Officer serving in India.. bemoning that they nearly died of thirst... " All the beer was gone, no gin left, whiskey finished weeks ago... we were down to our last 2 bottles of brandy" " Sir... didnt you have any water...?" "Of couse m'boy... but the situation was too serious to be concerned with cleanliness...."
  7. Rubbing them in your hair isnt going to clean it.........
  8. Go to a place that does outside awnings and get samples of the cloths they offer..Some look identical to carbonex. I got a sample of some 10 types and all could be used for drag washers. Dont get too hung up on thickness--- look at the construction of your reels - I doubt if thickness actually matters. Grease does!
  9. what is/was the dia of the wire? Ive just got some SS 'welding filler" to try, approx 1.2mm diam- Its pretty hard/stiff and may be too difficult to shape.. but I'll have a go and report.
  10. How/why? is there some deformity (ridge?) on the wire that makes a pressure point?
  11. Rusting problem with mine was I kept them in an ice-cream tub (no lid) and they got salt water (spray etc) in the tub... and I didnt empty.. Now the "new ones" are in sealed food containers and cant get wet.
  12. I use womens hair clips to push through the hole. Have to trim to length first (cut of knobs from ends) then fit and tap sinker with hammer. Cheap from supermarkets. THey do rust so keep them dry - when not in use.

    Snelled Ganged Hooks

    post a close up pic of your knots.... I suspect you are tying them incorrectly. Do you use a tool? such as flyfishermen use to tie flies?
  14. I'm RH... but I cast with my LH and wind with my RH. I've noticed some people hold the rod on their RHS and still wind RH. My LH holds the rod on my left hip. I think I'm normal so you must be ....................... ????
