    Question about Tuna oil

    DMCK , i just want to be sure what im buying as tuna oil doesnt contain blood. As the way the legislation reads for this state any form of animal blood (and a fish being an animal) is not legal within 3 nautical miles of the state mainland.

    Question about Tuna oil

    Savage , from my understanding thats incorrect ... the actual SA legislation states any blood of an animal. And a fish , if researched on line is classed as an animal.

    Question about Tuna oil

    Hi guys , i have a question regarding tuna oil. By law , it is illegal to berley with blood (amongst other things) from our saltwater shores. I see that alot of tuna oils available in tackle stores are very dark and thick , some are very pink/clear in colour also . My questions are, does anyone know the process of how the make tuna oil ? is there blood in tuna oil ? Is it legal to use tuna oil from the shore to berley ? cheers,

  10. The Bream Reaper, thank you for you help with all my posts. much appreciated ! wooly buggers in dark colours for carp ?
  11. Ok, so plan to target some big carp this summer from a relatively narrow fast flowing section of river. iv got 2 reels, one loaded with rio 6wf line (iv been using this for redfin) iv got 6lb leader on this also flurocarbon. and the other reel is a slightly larger reel loaded with rio wf8f/i with a clear tip to the fly line. then i have a 15lb flurocarbon leader off of this.Plan to use this for salmon. Rods , i have 2 , both 4 pce, one is a 6wt the other is an 8wt. The rods go with there matched weight line (see above) so my question is , for the big carp what set up would be better ? do i risk spooking the carp with heavier lines etc ?

    Best fly line.

    For saltwater.....im interested in getting the distance.

    Best fly line.

    In a you tube video i watched it was suggesting the angler potentially would get more distance casting with the in touch, as there is no stretch, therefore not losing any transferred power in the cast.
