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:

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...

Re: Weather This Week

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...

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...

Re: Help struggling getting the Kayak to the water

So the tyres for Wheeleez, are the tubes. Has any person had a problem with them going flat or otherwise.

$139.99-$169 Per tyre, one would not want too many problems arising from their use.
