    Yep and very thin.
    Chuck a glove on or a towel if you need to tighten a knot hard.

    Braid knots pull up fine without a ton of pressure, just tie one and try and undo the fecker!! If you are testing a knot then yeah use a glove or something.
    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    I forgot to mention Mackerel. Plenty of that in the shops for human consumption here these days. Guess it must be the positive influence of having so many discerning palletes in NZ now.

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    Good tip with braid knots @madjon is to do more wraps in the knot than you would with mono. If for example tying a uni knot, if you were using 20lb mono and did 5 turns, do at least 8 in braid as it pulls up really easy. I sometimes double it too because it is so thin but am not convinced this makes any difference apart from giving you a larger diameter to work with. I also tend to used quite heavy braid (15lb for trout, 30lb for bottom fishing) so very rarely have the braid bust before the leader unless it gets damaged. I also cut off the first 10m regularly to try and stop that happening.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    I quite like mackerel and other tasty/oily fish.

    I've probably caught more fish on pipi than anything else.

    I don't like wrestling meter wide stingers in a net in a dingy in the dark.

    Waitira river bar,
    Thursday afternoons efforts, in the wind and rain, kinda slow, but just about to pack up, and a nice snapper, give it 30 min and another, best was 50cm, and two small sent back to the sea, few KY, and a massive eel, 500m of the Waitira river bar in 9m water.
    Spent a couple hours, surf casting down the beach for an evening fish, Nice to Be back in Nz after 7 months in the Canadian north.

    Fantastic photos of a great day! Like Dundee I would like to know about the eel! Do you think it was a fresh water variety? We caught one recently way out in open water (30metres deep) that I would have sworn was a sliver belly!
