  1. Always enjoy watching your video's, Thanks for sharing Yorky
  2. it's a pity I can't put more than one like on that comment, BIG thumbs up from me
  3. 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 are better off walking away unless you are prepared for the possibility of the above consequences. Some of these people know what they are doing is wrong and don't want to be told about it. I'm not saying don't say anything, just be careful Cheers Yorky
  4. 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
  5. @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's not right" We had an older gent one day tell us that he often gets his 30 Whiting, "fishing by himself", when we told him that it's not allowed he said "the boat limit says 30" we explained that the personal bag limit applies up till 3 people then the boat limit applies, we even showed him where it says that in the size & bag limit flyer from PIRSA but he still wouldn't have it. He's either very ignorant or is planning to use the old "I didn't know" as his defence when he gets busted. Maybe the answer is more compliance, bigger fines, hit them where it hurts (back pocket). If they've got something to be scared of they might comply more. And it's not just any one race, it is across the board and you thought your's was long winded
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. @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
  10. 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
  11. @Territory Lad I haven’t noticed any decline in strikes or hookups for the species I fish for but I don’t fish for Bream so can’t answer regarding them Yorky
  12. I remove the split ring and either tie straight to the lure or more often than not I will use a small Mustad fastach clip that way I can change lures fast without having to re-tie. I've found that removing the split ring & adding a clip hasn't affected lure action even in small light lures i.e. Yellowfin 3-5g lures, I like the Mustad fastach clips because they are rounded & allow the lure to move freely. I mainly use the Mustad fastach clips in 25lb this may seem way overkill but the smaller ones in 15lb are to small for my eyes & fingers so I only use that size when I have to. the 25lb ones are still small and light & I know their strong cause I also use them with my salmon lures Yorky
  13. Fishing , the outcome of the game will be publicised, watching it won't change the outcome. Fishing is like sex, every time you miss out on it you never catch it up Cheers Yorky
  14. I actually upgraded from the "SS" to the "S" last year but this wasn't due to hook failure it was because I was dropping a few fish, I have found the "S" size better Cheers Yorky
  15. @Territory Lad I've been using them for a couple of years now and am pretty happy with them with no failures except having a hook bitten off by a toadie that grabbed my sinking stickbait Cheers Yorky
