Nice job I like the christening of the yak. I just got back from 3 days in Napier and did the gannets trip. Scored some really cheap gulp and zman softbaits at the Warehouse. Obviously not popular in Napier !

yeah, nice ,Blair , lets hope for some good weather now so you can get blood & guts all over it ! I'm itching to get out there too! It' still very much winter fishing . The Pania boys are getting some smooth hounds of the beach & someone landed a 28 kg Tope last weekend!
The guy in the Hamills store in Ahuriri told me the Clive river is fishing really well for whitebait this week, since all the rain! Should be some KY chasing them in !

Nice work guys, but I would add the friction stays to the rear holders mate, they make a huge difference, give a little more height and adjustment...
