Well done, look forward to the book


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.

Some serious fish there. Makes my Tailor look a bit ordinary LOL. We fished S-Bend last weekend. I can recall 3 strikes which left us with no terminal tackle.

 Hi Lennox, i've been using a shimano beastmaster 7 piece travel beachcaster...i can't remember the model off hand. It seems to be able to deal with most beasties even tho its seven piece and when packed is easy for me to carry on the bicycle. reel is a saragosa 18000 loaded with 80lb power pro and then a 4 metre 80-100lb mono leader and a 100-150lb wire trace..hope this helps,


All the best, Scott
