5am start

On location, met with a force 6 South Easterly, water clarity very poor, bitterly cold, big surf…. we gave it 5 hours before calling it quits…you gotta love it 🙂

Well?

I heard that wind whistling around the house this am……except I was tucked up in the bed!! Fair play for giving it 5 hours…it must have been cool enough out there.
Nice meeting you and the crew the other day.

Morning,

Aye it was a cold one on the fingers at first light ! I took a nice wave over the bow which really made it plesant 😀

Did you get your new reel sorted out after?

Aye good to meet you too.

A good wetting like that is bound to wake you up!!!

Reel is ordered but could take up to 3 weeks 😦

I have also inquired about sending the old Technium across the water to be fixed…so hopefully I will have either one soon.

I heard you were stocking up on lures on Saturday morning….there are some nice ones in there arent there…and more on the way. Did you see any of the waterproof lure boxes there? I need a couple of them.

Will there ever be a point when we can say that we need no more gear?

Aye I was in with Angela there, could’nt resist…had to get a few… 🙂

I did’nt spot the lure boxes, il have a look the next time I am down there.

If your stuck for a reel I have a spare Exage here with 20lb braid on it you could use until your new one arrives.

Hi Danny,

Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately I am being dragged up the North for a shopping weekend by “She who must be obeyed”. Brownie points will be earned in an abundance though. Hopefully reel should be in by the following weekend but if its not I might take you up on your generous offer.

I am sending the old Technium to that Shimano place in England…from talking to the guy on the phone he maintains that he can repair it for around £25 including postage. Not too bad at all is it? Im sending it off tomorrow so between Angela getting the Twin Power in, the repaired Technium returned and your kind offer it looks like Im back on the water for Friday week!
I wish I lived down there full time….roll on Easter holidays!!!

Morning,

Aye you have to put the time to get the fishing tokens ! 🙂
Sure you might even come across a shop selling some fishing gear when your up there? 😀

Good to see the reel situation will be sorted soon.

Danny.
