Check out the Pakula website and read the 'between the lines' book that is free to read on there.

All sorts of info.

When asked by a non-fisherman 'how many fishing rods do you really need?' the correct answer is either:

n+1 (where n is the number of fishing rods you currently own); or

n-1 (where n is the number of fishing rods which would cause your significant other to dump you.

No pro here, but here is a starter shopping list for ya:

Richter Lures: Soft Grassy
Richter Lures: Soft Oscar

Mark also has a good range of quality windons, teasers and GOOD CLIPS

The pick of the colours seems to be 46-46, 502-506, 93-lumo, 17-3. A few fish turning up on the newer 515-UV too.

Knots? Practise up a good double (bimini twist) and a catspaw for the windon, but to tie the lure or clip on, you're looking at uni or better still a crimp.

Im about to do a few trips to dampier chasing billies. More than happy if you want to tag along. 24 blacks and 2 sails recorded for the fenacle comp so far this morning so they are going well.
Got some spare windons here if you want them too.

CCC Pakula website has heaps of info. Another option to the bimini is the Aussie Plait.  I found  Nathan at Campbells to be  a great help.
