    What fishing gear do you purchase?

    I'm quite happy to use cheaper reels for smaller fish but I generally use known 'brands'. For larger fish it has be a good quality reel --- usually known. ABU and Penn mostly. I do have a couple of unknowns that perform-- but I only got them coz they were bloody cheap and were worth the risk. I gave up buying home brand combos after a bad experience with 2 x 'snake brand' outfits. Similarly 'snake' hooks and swivels have a short 'in use' life..... but I still have a lot in reserve... I have a lot (yes... a lot!!) of ebay braid..... and have never had it let me down. I'm happy to buy cheaper 'un known' rods as long as I like the feel and they are VERY cheap. So far-- so good... but if a 'name' comes up at a good price I get it. A few years ago I bought a lot of used reels from a Qld deceased estate.... mostly game reels. I'll never use all these... but gee--- they look good when I hang them off the rod racks on the boat!!! THe 'finance officer' is always vigilant about the fishing gear she sees... so I have 3 lots.... 1 at the chalet-- a large collection coz " I have to cater for visitors without their own gear'..... and 2 places at home... " I need that in case I go out locally"... and " dont go in there... its full of rats and spiders ......"

    Frozen Salted Carp VS DIY Blender

    I made one years ago out of steel flat bar. It was so out of balance you couldnt hold it steady. I now use an electric mulcher and/or BIG mincer. If these fail my fishing buddy has a commercial plastics granulator modified to do fish..... nothing stops that!
