Don't think those CMNLSG guides are Fuji's.

What knot do you use to join the Fireline to the mono?

Me and a couple of others used to go casting down the Brisbane River opposite Milton on Saturday mornings. I may start going again in the new year. Are you interested?

Cyberfish Bait clips are supposed to move as you cast to stop the hook being pulled out of the clip due to the stretch in the body part of the trace so you should have a degree of adjustment anyway. The bit of slack thus generated in the snood helps the hook release from the clip when the lead hits ...

Kenmare The only advantage of a pulley rig is your point number 2 - That's what the rig was designed for. As to point 1 if you want to (theoretically) offer less resistance to a biting fish the fishfinder rig is better although, once you cast a reasonable way, a fixed paternoster is probably just as...

Guys There’s a book called Adventure Fishing by Henry Gilbey from UK which has a chapter on fishing for bronze whalers off the beach in Namibia. They use 14’ SA rods (Purglas?) with Daiwa Sealine 40 reels mounted in the low position, 40 lb line and standard UK style rigs with wire traces, impact shi...

John Softly claims that he has promoted leader casting in Australia but this is immediately attacked by you Leigh, Scott (90 gm) and now Ian Cameron. Seems a bit unfair to me. What have you three ever done to promote leader casting to the average general fisherman in Australia? True you may be some ...

Can't agree more. I have some of those Zirconium Carbide guides from UK (like Sic guides) on my 3500 and I don't reckon they are as smooth as the BSVLG's that I usually use on my other rods. Fuji Alconites are good although expensive. If you want a really cheap smooth guide try the BNOG which is a l...

Guys The big advantage of long casting with the bigger leads is that, if there is a strong head wind or side wind, you can still easily get a pilchard sized bait out 90m (if that is where the fish are of course) with a fishing pendulum and a 6 oz lead while a size 6 ball and a pilchard will be lucky...

Could it be that if you throw the lead too high the wind acts on the line belly between you and the lead and makes an S curve rather than an arc and actually pulls the lead back? Just a thought!

Don't know whether this works or not but here is a link to Neil Mackellow's board which shows a suitable knot.

I must go and buy some braid and try it on my 6500CT in the surf!

We are certainly not good enough to enter on a competitive basis casting competitions in Britain and no one up here has ev...

Leigh The Shimano site that you end up at is the standard European site. I got the impression from the rods I saw in Spain that they are really fishing rods rather than tournament rods.

I don't know that I agree as the cost of braid could put a lot af potential casters off and mono is a lot cheaper isn't it.

Anyway to the second part of my post why did you guys abandon the old Australian Casting Association rules?

Hey Leigh

What does three times heavier mean? Was it thicker or stronger or what?
