Back then ,we all had 1 piece rods to handle the sinker weight the rod shaking and a great white or bronzie pulling you out your shoes Something to be able to cast 10 oz sinker.

Re: Antique fishing rod

Maybe drop this guy a line and see if he can give you any info: https://australianfishingmuseum.com/

Re: Slide Baiting for Bronzies

Good luck, I’ve been hoping to get a toothy over the summer but the winds around here haven’t been favourable - too much variation in wind direction throughout the day to make ballooning feasible.

Re: Anti reverse switch on reels.

I like reels without them, one less place for spray to get in, and one less spring and pawl to **** up and need replacing. These days it seems like a cheap 'feature' to add to entry level reels to impress entry level fishermen, like a bunch of cheap and useless bearings that are rougher than a decen...

Vyak is good if you’re looking to meet up with other kayak fishos. I know a few of them fish Altona pretty regularly

Re: King spinning

Doug would shore slow jigging work? Good way to target finnicky fish I hear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAd3JJ-KfsQ My understanding (although I am very much a novice when it comes to kings) is that they like a lot of noise to get them fired up so unless you’re slow jigging a cowbell it might n...

I don't think it's been cancelled, I thought they just got an extension to do more research before i...
