  • Picking up is not really an option now I know where you are.
    It would cost more to come and get it and get back home than it would cost to buy a top of the line setup.
    I was looking at getting something to carry as a spare in case of a mishap with my main rig.
    Might look at building up a new rod and retiring my current one to a spare.
    Thanks for…[Read more]

  • Where abouts can they be picked up from?

  • I guess there will be more of this rubbish coming up soon.
    The latest member to join at 10.15 last night looks as if it could be another one.
    Hope I’m wrong.

  • HERE, HERE,
    Agree with you fully on this one Fishy Bishy.
    I also offered my services last year and they were declined.
    This forum has sunk to level that I don’t think the moderators are even logging on.
    It would only take a few minutes per day to remove offensive posts but these seem to stay on regardless.
    Probably do a world of good for all forum…[Read more]

    Looking at your spelling and grammar it is rather obvious you only go to school to eat your lunch.

    Even after fishing for 50 odd years nothing surprises me anymore.
    About 6 years ago my son and I set a net in the surf at low tide off a Buller beach. Next morning…[Read more]

  • Hi elmo,
    Wondered when you would be back. Brian M sent me the results and I see you and the good lady picked up a prize each.
    Watched the conditions closely through a couple of websites and a close by webcam, must have been hard work.
    Would loved to have been there but these things happen.

    Fishy Bishy!
    Firstly, please accept my most humble apologies for refering to you by an incorrect title. I can not explain how I managed that. :oops:
    Fishy Billy sounds like something a child would keep cockabullies in.

    Going by your age I would suspect you entered the trade around 9 years after me and while your name seems familiar I can not for the…[Read more]

    Ive been fishing for a day or three now and well remember names like Alvey, Dam, Luxor, Mitchell, ABU, Penn, all quality reels of the 1950s and 60s and made in Europe, Scandinavia or America. Cheaper reels like Intrepid and Argus were available, then along came a large range of reels made in Japan. Japan was industrialising after the war and this…[Read more]

  • Thats not too bad Al, it’s more in 2 days than you caught in 10 days over Xmas. :wink:
    I didnt catch any fish last weekend, but then I didnt go out fishing either, so its not surprising. :roll:
    Too busy fixing the Landie so I can get away trout fishing over the long weekend. Heading for the upper Hurunui for the 3 days.
