  1. Have tried the Pro Cure with limited success. Most successful scent for me had been Stimulate Ultrabite Glow Green slow release spray ... but it is not made anymore. Was a sad day for me when it became unavailable. Have one can left but too scared to use it as once its gone its gone. Regards, HBt.
  2. Apologies. Senior moment. Just checked and it was a Sienna ... but a great little reel all the same. Regards, HBt.
  3. First bream reel purchased over 10 years ago was a 2500 Symetre. I have since moved on but its still working well for the grandchildren catching squid. Great little reel. Regards, HBt.
  4. Hi Micky. Depending on what you want to spend I have been very happy with my Rapala Sling bag. Another option to look at. Last time I was in Tackleworld on Port Road they had a few in 2 dfferent sizes. Regards, HBt.
  5. Hi Micky. They certainly have it in their online store. You may be able to get it 'click and collect'. Regards, HBt.
  6. Hi Micky. Check out the Shimano Sling tackle bag at BCF. Might be what you want. Regards, HBt.
  7. Nice to see TL. An Easter family get-together maybe. Must indicate a 'healthyness' for bream in the system. Regards, HBt.
  8. Can think of 2 words: 'Shimano Bling'. Regards, HBt.
  9. 1. Intrigue as to what a reel of this size could manage casting hbs for bream 2: Compatability with my rod > enhancing casting comfort. My first was an older 1000 Fuego that I purchased secondhand so there was no great financial outlay. What I found was this size matched my rod for my style of fishing very nicely, it was comfortable to use for extended amounts of time and it could deal with any fish that I came across. When the opportunity came to upgrade to a better 1000, this time a Shimano which was slightly smaller again I jumped at it and would not hesitate to do it again.
  10. As anorher helper (^^^ like TL) my favourite combo includes a Shimano 1000. Some will say you will have casting issues with a small spool but personally have not had any ... YET. A great size reel to use and should generally be enough for the bream and generally the bycatch too. Regards HBt.
  11. My(its actually our)purchasing philosophy at home is: 'something out before something in' ... so get rid of something and get the Vanford. Good luck. Regards, HBt.
  12. I used to have a 1000 and 1500 Fuego which were the American equivilant of our legendary 'Bluvias'. Great reels and very light. Only mentioned once here and a 'big' call but if the newer Fuego is even 1/2 as good as the older models I would be getting the Fuego. Unfortunately they dont come with a spare spool like the older models did. Good luck with your choice. Regards, HBt.
  13. How did you get on with Tackleworld? Interestingly I thought they might have checked it over before you took it. Regards, HBt. As an aside have a new 2-4kg rod on its way. Will be a new challenge as it is 9'6" in length so looking forward to what it might do. The hope is that I will be able to reach certain areas at low water that have previously been out of reach. Time and my casting ability will tell.
  14. Everything including rods kept in a single wadrobe with internal drawers. Lures kept in tackle trays/Sistema boxes/1 drawer. Reels kept in the other drawers. Just take out what I need depending on where I will be fishing. It all goes in a Rapala sling bag on the day. Some might say anal or obsessive compulsive but I LOVE neat and tidy: a place for everthing and everything in its place. Regards, HBt.
  15. Hi Adrian. Nicely done with great lures sTB. I noted the snap/swivel setup that you use. I use the same snap but remove the swivel. Have you found any bonus to leaving the swivel attached? Might need to alter my practice. Regards, HBt.
