I’m all set for the start of the whitebait season. Just 14 more sleeps to go!
I’ve made a “holding bottle” or whatever it is called to wear around my waist when fishing the Rakaia Scoop Net.
This is a quite a big plastic bottle. I think it is 4 litres. I’ve drilled plenty of small holes in it for the water to drain out and cut two slots to pass my webbing belt through. Finally I cut a hole in the bottom – which of course will be at the top when worn around my waist. I’ve left 10mm of the bottom in place and cut inside that for added strength.
Here is a new short video of mine on whitebaiting with a Pole Net:
