Re: Need Another Tub

Also a great little yak. My wife first had one when we paddled from Kiteriteri to Tonga Island Marine reserve, she was always comfortable even when the sea built a bit. Admitting also, she likes the Pro 400 Lite bit more room to wriggle. Enjoy as I am sure you shall. :y:

Re: Speed bumps are fighting back

You're on your own out there. There are no sea police, Maritime NZ only have a retrospective interest in incidents, the Coastguard is a voluntary rescue organisation and has no power and the harbour masters are only interested in harbour activities, and I have seen no evidence of them actually doin...

Re: Wheeleez Carts on sale

No need to cross your fingers they are beaut. You shall love your cart. May take you a few times loading your kayak to figure out how to stop it running away or bouncing out from under a heavy Yak whilst loading, but when you do and it can be done you shall never regret purchase. :y:

Re: Is this salt suitable for curing and brining?

What do guys think? I usually like buying in bulk to reduce costs in the long run. Is this suitable for curing meats and fish. Cheers :y: Schecter best to use 'plain sea salt'. Too many other things in that one . You can buy 25kilos of coarse sea salt for beggar all. This is what I use to make baco...

Re: Chinese reels - Opinions? Experiences?

Bought a Daiwa 4000 TD Sol from Australia. Thought what I had done was a good deal as I have two 3ooo TD Sols of the older variety. Never had a problem, both 6years old, still going strong and smooth as. Well, when the 4000 arrived from Australia one crank of the handle told me all was not well. Rou...

All of what Mike said about the Espri :y: Plus you have the OK Tetra, another one suitable , sounds like the Phoenix may also be worth a look. Genuine paddlers / fishermen would endorse these three for your needs.. :y:

Last two years, my used zman have been put into container with gulp juice without a problem :y: . It appears it is only if you mix Gulp and zman or others together you end up with one big mess ;( .

Re: Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

I borrowed this article from the Reef Kayak Fishing FB page.... Have a read and have a bit of a think ! Why did you start kayak fishing ?.... why do kayak fish ? Are we heading down the same path, or have we already got there ? Can we bring "it" back ? http://riverratzkayakfishing.com/kayak-brother...

Good call Andrew. Apart from cost, the visual quality is beyond belief. Pack and save in Thames has 'one' of the worst 'smelling' wet fish displays i have ever experienced. The smell waffles around the cabinet and beyond; Yet humans that would complain at the very least thing do not seem to complain...

Meet Kerry, a few years back, at a Rob Fort, meet up. Kerry had just walked back to PapaAroha from Coromandel town, he had been on the piss, lol. Kerry was camped with a chap Muntid. Now Muntid 's name came about through having been a shearer so I believe, had to laugh, as it is a game that would gi...
