  1. In Australia, braid is definitely the most popular line, either in fresh, or sea water. My preference is high viz braid, as I usually start a session about 20 minutes before the sun comes up. My saltwater target fish are the mackerel family, spaniards and queensland macks and golden snapper (lutjanus johnii). When a big spano makes a 100 to 150 metre run, it's nice to know that the finer diameter makes for more line on the reel. In the dams and rivers, I target barramundi and braid is by far the best line for these bruisers; its 'no stretch' ability and a thumb clamped on the reel, is perfect for stopping big fish from charging into mangroves, or drowned trees in dams. Oh, the joy of a burnt thumb!!
  2. Was it true about the archers at Agincourt who waved their bowstring fingers and yelled out to the froggies, "We can still pluck yew"
  3. Sea fishing, I look at an hour either side of high and low tide. In estuaries, more or less the same in the neaps, as most northern Australian estuaries carry large tides between 5 and 11 metres and there is NO fishing on big tides.

    What's left of a 54 cm 'doggy' mackerel. I took off the fillets and let the big cod have the frame for brekkie!

    I do believe that the Western Australian Govt. ordered that a couple of blokes were assigned there to shoot any starlings and sparrows. I know that when I lived in WA, a few spoggies that had hitched lifts on ships, were shot in Fremantle. Apologies for swinging away from the subject matter.
  7. Oh, I dunno, you seem to have been quite good at it, judging from your many, many rants...
