  1. Except in a river or stream Regarding the information about the wind i have come to realise Millenials dont have a sense of consequence, you see them on youtube falling foul of obvious pitfalls any 'normal' adult will predict so everything has to be explained and most likely every time it's published because when you live on a phone there is no need to remember anything, its a wonder some remember to breathe !

  2. I actually bought AT today, AM had sold out, miserly thin offering for £2.30, tempted by 'roach' on the front cover, well over a year since I last bought AT. I really don't know why I bothered.

On occasion I have even fished with my line coming directly upwards off the bait below my rod tip with no line laying on the surface at all (dapping). Keith

  5. Bob, we've had some ! Fishing the Top End in a tinny, we were free lining blueys into likely barra spots and slowly retrieviing them as we drifted uo a tidal creek. One spot seemed pretty good, several barras around the 10 lb mark. So we put the hook down. After a bit I got snagged - pulled for a break, and the "snag" went away across the bottom. then climbed up the creek bank and revealed itself as a 4 ft saltie.
