    Looks like the situation is even worse than we thought. Cheers, Lyall.

    I purchased this on impulse from BCF a couple weeks ago.

    Unlike some other books I have purchased, this one I commenced reading immediately. It is not bad. Of course there is a lot of content that I already know...and content that has been helpful that has got me thinking. I don't agree with it all but then there will always be differences between individuals. But what can I say, Steve Starling likely won't agree with everything I say and I think it is obvious who is the better fisho!:(

    These lures I picked up from the local tackle store for $5 each!!!!!:) Do I need them...no! But at that price I couldn't resist. The Daiwa lures (2) were marked at $21. They swim well as I tried one a few weeks ago that I also got on special. The Yo-zuri was marked at $27!
    cheers

    20% off at BCF last night so I got some braid which will likely end up on my Daiwa TD Sol baitcaster.

    Also got some larger circle hooks as well to try on the local natives.

    I have used smaller KL hooks on carp and they have worked well. One of the benefits of circle hooks is for when you practice catch and release. That is irrelevant when I fish for carp but I do find circle hooks useful as they hook in the corner of the mouth and it makes for easy unhooking and dispatching...then one can get the line back into the water and get another carp out!:cool: Now it is time to see how the larger ones go on cod.

    Hi, Jim. Are you able to claim BCF as a dependant? Cheers, Lyall.

    My main problem with circles is, I keep trying to hook the fish instead of letting it hook it's self. But I'm learning.

    Walked into the local bcf today to get a couple of gas bottles filled and the girl behind the counter just shook her head and said "sorry, we've run out". So, not being one to be stuffed around, I bought a new rod instead - Shimano Sahara Top End spin 6'8", 5-10kg.

    That'll teach 'em to stuff me around by running out of gas - hmmf!!!

    A force to be reckoned with.
