  1. Adrian, I have confidence that 13,000 will pass and 14,000 will be achieved. You ARE a 'trout whisperer'.... apart from the fishing, your photos are superlative.. Now a 'big islang Q'.... do you have E-Carp polluting your rivers?

    Seamartin wooden reel

    Shame to show it off on a 'modern' rod.... I have my old reels mounted on cane and split-cane rods...... dont have a Seamartin, regretfully...
  3. I'd eat the small brobzies, Dust in fish seasoning and dry bake in a webber kettle. If to dry a flesh to cook nicely, spraylightly with canola oil... I'm salivating... just typing about it...
  4. 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 "...
  5. Gee... you got some good stuff at the dump !!
  6. I'd be too stuffed from blowing it up to go fishing!!! I admire your stamina... can I please have some?
  7. SO... is this from the new blow-up girfriend..?????? KINKY !!!!
  8. We have all been deceived. We have been led to believe ''climate change' meant global warming......
  9. " 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...."
  10. Rubbing them in your hair isnt going to clean it.........
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. How/why? is there some deformity (ridge?) on the wire that makes a pressure point?
  14. 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.
