4 weeks to go guys. With a big early bird entry I hope the weather plays ball. Watch out for mad mike specials which will be posted soon. Remember Orton Events will supply a feed at prize giving ( The famous pork and apple sauce buns cooked by the crew from bradley smokers ) and also for those guys who are staying at nearby camp grounds or houses there will be a courtesy van that will pick you up and drop you off for a small cost of $4 a head just in case you want to have a few beers.

Please support our sponsors. Listed Below.

Yup, Team Obsolete's in.

Nick (NJ) arrives back in NZ from England in 3 weeks, straight into the comp. I wonder if he still knows how to fish.

With the diawa sealine reels I hear some people upgrade the drags to carbon washers, how much does this cost and what are the benefits?

Cheers,

you get a very smooth drag for sure most my reels run them with around 2-3kg extra drag when upgraded depending thou, MM will be able to give you a better insight into the carbon tex drag washers as he can do this upgrade with experience :y:...

TBH with the Fathom now on the market you are better off buying the Fathom if you want the carbon drags. There generally a better reel and cast as well if not better, the price of doing the carbons is about $40 fitted and I can do you a fathom reel alone for $250

Also Orton Events NZ has a new ticket system which has a bar code. This bar code is unique to each individual entry. So when you weigh in your species of fish, your ticket will be scanned and all your information will show up on screen for you to see. It will also give you a receipt for each day's weigh in. So don't loose your tickets.

NJay is now back in NZ, and did some training for the Cove to Cape this morning. (He's been inland in England - Cambridge - for the past year, aching to do some NZ kayak fishing.)

An 18.5kg kingie from down the coast, now with the Russell Smokehouse for treatment.

And apparently there was a pack of them...

He's out at Cape Brett today (a loooong paddle for someone who had reconstructive surgery on his left shoulder only 2 months ago, so just as well he and his mate went out on the Stabi), and already landed an est. 22kg kingie; just phoned me to arrange weighing at the Swordfish Club.

[Edit] The boys are back in now; weighed in and filleting. Nick's one went 21.55kg, Tom's 16:
