Re: Kayak fishing for trout in Rotorua

Have you got a sounder? I haven't fished Rotorua but have done a bit of trout fishing from the kayak. I usually look for smelt (usually show up as a faint row of dots in mid water) then try to lower my flies to around that depth and just jiggle them slightly every 30 seconds or so. I use a woolly bu...

Where to get plastic to repair OK prowler?

Hi, I have a small crack on my prowler 4.5 elite and I am after a bit of plastic to melt in there. Does anyone know what type of plastic it is, and where to get it?

Thanks

OK Prowler 4.5 elite hatch seal

Hi Does anyone know where to get the hatch seal material for the prowler 4.5 elite front hatch? Mine is pretty old and compressed, and the kayak tends to fill up with rain water. My old prowler 13 had the neoprene cover that stretched over the hatch, which was a pain in the ass to put on but did a v...

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

I like the idea of being able to pedal slowly to hold yourself on sign, and dropping jigs etc. Also being able to safely fish in close to cliff faces while casting softies.

And my elbow is munted from too much table tennis...

Re: A little story about Shimano - and why I will never buy them again.

Because I'm a cheapskate, I could never pay 200 bucks for a reel. What I tend to do is buy 20~30 dollar reels online and replace them once they fail. I've only ever had one reel fail inside a year. I also give them a quick little grease every year to the cogs. Yep that is another option, I know HLD...

Re: A little story about Shimano - and why I will never buy them again.

Tangent here, but speaking of buying offshore, I have 2 x Daiwa BG2500 reels arriving from SRMO in the states, got both of them for $232 landed in NZ. Best price I have seen here is $199 each. Makes it an easy decision! Will have to add GST too soon. Also, it's great UNTIL you need any support by D...
