  1. See the youtube link below from Yamashita regarding Squid jig rattle. The video is in Japanese but has subtitles. Most of my jigs are Yamashita's as I like the quality & the technology that goes into the build. I mainly use the rattle jigs when I first get to a spot for a short period then switch over to a non rattle jig unless the water is dirty then I will use the rattle jig pretty much for the session, I'm also a fan of their warm jacket technology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvOVuu_-nZ4 Yorky
  2. Give the man a cigar . We hear a lot of comments from people in the shop regarding the best scents be it gels or sprays & which one is best. We don't have one in the shop that someone doesn't buy because according to someone they all work. People have their favourites and a lot of these people are buying it to fish the same areas for the same species but one will tell you a certain scent doesn't work and the next person will tell you that that scent is the only one that works. From what I hear from a lot of different people is that they all work just not for everyone. The o
  3. @Meppstas, Love your photo's and your reports, you are definitely fishing in some beautiful county Cheers Yorky
  4. Hoarders can keep their damn Toilet paper, I’ve got the ASSblaster 3000
  5. I have found that when tying Fluoro the knot needs to be well & truley lubricated (spit) before pulling it up tight to increase the knot strength. If you tie a knot without/with little lube & pull it tight watch what happens to the fluoro at the base of the knot just as it gets tight & you can watch the damage happen. Since I've started really slobbering on my fluoro knots if had next to no failures Yorky
  6. Always enjoy watching your video's, Thanks for sharing Yorky
  7. it's a pity I can't put more than one like on that comment, BIG thumbs up from me
  8. Not necessarily the cowards way, maybe the smart way. I don't do a lot of jetty fishing because I don't have the patience, and I don't meant patience for fishing, I mean patience for some of the morons that you see up there. If you are going to approach these thieving bastards in an effort to educate just be careful, I have heard stories from quite a few that have spoken to people doing the wrong thing and they have copped abuse, been threatened (one was told they will go looking for his family), knife pulled, full blown arguments. If you approach them and are told to F*** off you
  9. It was clear, I was pretty much just backing what you said. I always correct people when they come in the shop blaming one particular race
  10. @vogon I do not know the answer, but it frustrates the hell out of me. I do know that there are those that do not know the rules & are surprised when told that what they are doing is illegal. There are those that do not know the rules but don't care to know them. and There are those that know the rules but don't care to follow them. In the shop we are constantly talking to people about fish bag & size limits as well as safety equipment rules laws and it is very disheartening when you get replies like "they've got to catch you" or "I don't do it very often" or "that'
  11. 100% agree with what Projoe said, also when tying knots in Fluro make sure you get the knot good & wet/lubed before pulling it up tight & make sure the knot is pulled up properly/tight as I have found if it's not both of the above you will get burn off with your knot Yorky
  12. The link below is how I learnt to tie the FG & is how I am still tying it now, be it in the shed, standing in the water or in a rocking boat. only need to tighten it down after every set of wraps http://youtube.com/watch?v=yk7uWUa4z6Y Cheers Yorky
  13. FG knot, I’m pretty much 100% braid & use a leader on everything from 6lb to 150lb. I find the FG to be the smallest knot & you don’t hear it clicking through your guides which means it’s not catching on them & risking damage to them or impacting on your casts especially on very light gear. It simply gives you a smooth flowing cast Cheers Yorky
  14. @nicksfishin666 Squidgy flick baits are only available in the Bio-tough range unless someone is holding stock of the old model, they have been discontinued in the other ranges so a lot of favourites are now gone Cheers Yorky
  15. These are the fastach clips I use, they are available with or without swivel I use the ones without a swivel to lessen the added weight even when I have removed the split ring. Notice they are rounded where the lure attaches which allows the lure to move freely. They are available in 5 sizes from 15 - 100lb, I use all sizes depending what lure I'm using for what species, I have used the 100lb when trolling for Tuna with no loss of action to the lure
