  1. i look forward to seeing the results.
  2. Thanks for the feedback on the video, its much appreciated. Just putting bait in to try and create a feeding area, I tend to either use Tigernuts or BNV boilies, the whole idea of the boilies is to build a feeding response and then due to the boilies makeup attract fish by supplying a good balanced foodsource so that they start searching out the bait. The beauty of having kids and wife who come fishing with you is that they can offer the chance of extra rods Catch and release is perfectly legal in NSW, and thankfully a growing number of anglers Australia wide are starting to see the
  3. I am honestly gobsmacked Steve, catapults are banned, yet I was looking at a compound bow the other day that can fire an arrow at over 300 feet per second that I (and my 12 year old daughter) could buy on the spot with no licence or even handing over ID. It's also bizarre as I am sure that if you look at importing them the import rules are that you can't import one with a wrist brace, but if it doesn't have a wrist brace it's ok, with no mention of individual states. And yes Australia is harder on guns than the UK or US/Canada. For instance, you have to apply for a gun licence, w
  4. If I'm honest, I don't know how many of the "aussies" that post on here are "aussies" Technically I'm an Australian, But of the 40 plus "carp anglers" I know of in Australia, only a handful (like less than five) are Australians, the rest are ex somewhere UK, Poland, South African, French. If someone hasn't experienced the widespread "australian" fishing mentality, it's hard to explain. Most that you meet, honestly can't understand why on earth would you want to go fishing for a trash fish that you can't eat if you manage to catch one? whats the point??? (I've toned that language down fro
  5. Mate, come to Australia and watch some of the angling programs, or try and tell someone that you are a carp fisherman who practices catch and release (which is perfectly legal in NSW where I am) and you will soon see that it is more than "some" that need educating. The attitude towards fish in general, fish care and the environment is largely appalling and the attitude towards Carp is best summed up as hatred (which is still putting it mildly) If pointing that out upsets some, sorry, but it needs saying. I know what you mean about some places in the UK mate, I lived there for 30 years, b
  6. Are you sure slingshots are illegal in VIC? Slingshots with an arm brace are illegal and can't be imported, but i've got about 20 normal fishing catapults at home that have been cleared by customs. Maybe it's different in VIC????
  7. As the person that both made the video and the comments, my point is that every time I go fishing there is a fresh load of crap in the swim and a couple of aussie banksticks (snappped off twigs pushed in to the ground) and to clarify, when I say crap I mean literally, I walked in to the swim once with my wife and there was literally a massive turd laying in the middle of the area with a pile of toilet paper on top of it. Keep in mind that the place is surrounded by bush and hence if someone was caught short, it would only have been a 10 metre walk to put it in an area that nobody would have ev
  8. Yep got hooks, I'll pm you my number, give me a call
  9. If you are looking for tackle resources, I would recommend either Johnson Ross (great bunch of guys and happy to help when you want to put together some gear and want to be informed of what works with what, also happy to do a deal on larger purchases Tacklebox.co.uk great website when you know what you want, very quick rarely takes more than a week to get here (downside is the price as it is always RRP and freight is not cheap, upside though is speed, i've had gear here in my had in four days before) Ted Carter great for bulky items as they offer freight free (YES FREIGHT FREE!!!!!!!) t
  10. I used to hold Korda gear (and still have a fair bit left over) problem was trying to keep everything that everybody wanted when I had to buy in bulk and everyone wanted to buy one packet. There was also a strange phenomenon where people seemed to feel that if it was local (so you had already paid freight etc etc to have it in the country) that it should somehow be cheaper? than in the shops in the UK????? I still sell Free Spirit rods though, have limited Korda gear still available and also sell boilies.
  11. Hi mate, thanks for the kind words. In regard to the aussie fishermen, some fish for carp (some with the intention of killing them, and some that just like fishing and I don't think actually kill the carp, preferring to just put them back) it's all about education, as all of the tackle shops over here will tell you that it is "illegal" to return a carp and that there is a huge fine. Fact of the matter is that for anyone that has a basic understanding of english grammar would be able to work out that the DPI requests that you don't return them alive, and there is a $150,000 fine for reloc
