New site moderator - Colin Hay

Hi Guys n Gals,

With the recent huge influx of content and comments and suggestions from a few members that we need more moderators we have decided to add Colin Hay to the moderator team.  Colin has always welcomed and helped people with great advice and I think he will be a great asset to all us in keeping this the best fishing site that actually talks about FISHING!! Surprised

 

Good to have you onboard mate,

Adam

I hope this wont lead to bitter infighting and division in the Prestigious Colin Club.

Colin is always online so he's a good choice IMO.

and everyone for your support. I love this site and I really appreciate the great fishing information that the members are always willing to share.

Lol No worries. Could do with a new hat - I lost my Fishwrecked cap about five minutes into the first leg of the N v S day.
Remember, you can't catch a fish if your hook isn't in the water.

Still got to get out for that fishing trip with you. Have you had much joy with your big baitrunner. I still haven't had that big fish I am hoping will make that drag sing come along.

A 5.5 kg salmon Nice one. Way better than the few tailor and skippy that have unwittingly managed to grab the end of the line my BB was attached to.
Interestingly, when I went out with P Green1 in the N v S, he uses a baitrunner as a trolling reel. Works like a dream.

Hi mate

Wed, 2008-05-21 21:11

Send me a PM for fishwrecked gear.

 

Shorty -> 3rd option down at the top -> My Account -> Edit -> Half way down is signature box -> Sumbit. 

 

Just a reminder that with PM's, you can extend the length of the PM box by dragging the three little lines at the bottom of the text box down with the mouse.

Cheers,

Adam
