Re: Trout lures/flies discussion

The only area where I consider myself experienced when it comes to trout is small streams. Lately for lures I've been running the Daiwa DR minnow as my first choice and then vary the colour with conditions. However, a big part of the reason I did the lure challenge vid was to show that in small stre...

Re: Edge rods.

Been around for a little while now Jim. There's a great story to go with the company and how Gary Loomis got brought back into the rod making industry on a video along with an explanation of the spiral guides on the bait cast model. Haven't been fortunate enough to fish with one but everyone I know ...

Great fish mazman, are those bass or EP?
What lure is that on the bream? Slow roll retrieve?
Big one is a bass and the smaller one is an ep.

Bream are on an austackle shinku (imitation of tiemco stick minnow), no real retrieve on it just slack lining it in the right area.

Fish from last couple of weeks

Wasn't too sure where to chuck this but since it's mostly trout thought here would do. Been out fishing a reasonable amount the last couple of weeks, mainly trout fishing averaging over 20 a trip in the small streams but have got out for a few of my other favourites as well. Some of the pics below h...

Re: few photos and a few questions

For the reel in that budget I would be looking at the stradic ci4 in 2500 from shimano or spend a bit more and pick up a daiwa like a caldia lt, luvias or gekkabijin air. For braid I would be looking at J braid grand in 6lb or majorcraft dangan x8 pe 0.6 will need a fair bit of backing on the strad...

Re: Sanctuary Lakes breams 28/04/2019

Nice work to get out there and give it a run. For small surface lures I would be careful with how much you change, the smaller (45mm) gomoku walkers in particular have an action that is very sensitive and small changes can really mess it up. I find they run best with a mono leader and a small loop k...
