Re: A little story about Shimano - with a happy ending.

Who knew Shimano NZ read these forums.... You'd be surprised who reads these forums! :D :D Seriously, I work for Composite Developments, we bring Okuma and Savage Gear into New Zealand, along with several other brands. I think in this case it's a pretty simple mix up, and Shimano have certainly don...

Re: Sullivan's Anzac Day

I caught 2carrots, 3 snappers between 33-40cm, and 2 fat kahawai which reused as bait.
A lot of small snappers caught and released.
Great dawn service. Lest we forget.

Re: Hi

Thanks guys. Anyone tried out the torpedo 7 PFD's? Was looking at the below as an option. https://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/T7LJJN6PA/title/torpedo7-adult-voyager-paddle-vest Suggest to buy it, keep the receipt and try it out at any nearby beach. If that doesn’t float you, return it back. No ques...

Re: General Fishing Line question

I guess its for you to see where is your line better. Best is to have line that change colour every 10m so you can control the depth of your hook

Re: KFNZ Gear Library - all welcome

This is a good initiative.

Can we setup a ground rules, what will happen if someone snagged and lost the lure? It's important to set this rule upfront so you know what to expect :)

Re: A cautionary tale - new skills deployed in anger

Well, came into Makara the other day and it looked an easy landing so hadn't even stowed rods etc. Suddenly got lifted by a good sized set very close to the beach and started going over - :swear: it wasn't going to be pretty (or cheap given 4 rods sticking up) - so implemented what I'd read about p...

There a guidelines and suggestions but nothing I've read thus far claims it is the law. Hmm seems things may have changed in 2014 with the release of "Navigation Safety Bylaw 2014...

Re: A Sobering Article on the State of the Hauraki Gulf

sad truth. I have a young boy, and how I wish he or his grandchild can enjoy the same favorite past time I privileged to have at this time.

Strange that Aussies or American with heck a lot more people able to manage their resources better than us here.

Re: A cautionary tale

very hairy situation there ... glad everything is all ok.

Makes me thinking to do some practice for surf landing as my usual go to beach are quite safe with almost no surf.

Any safe-ish beach in north shore or rodney where we can have a good practice for this?

Wonder if 2500 is strong enough or if the spool is big enough if you "accidentally" hook a kingi?
