    Tell me when you find out where. I could do the same.

    Whoops sorted found one on ebay, was using 6wt instead of wf6f as a search term $40 saved for diesel, and the humiliation of handing over hard-earned $ to the H&fleecin franchise avoided.........

    Geez $82 just to catch a trout. I know a spot where you could get heaps with just a sharp stick. Although I don't know why you would want to.

    I catch a reasonable amount of fish. Trout done raw in coconut cream or pan fried is as good or better than snapper. Fresh caught maiden trout is definitely a household favourite. I also like to saltwater fly fish early morning in the estuary.

    I would probably get a scientific angler line for a few dollars more.

    I was expecting an answer more like "I'll slap some handcuffs on you" GA.
    Salt water fly fishing does have a bit more appeal for me although I have never done it. What species do you target? I have always wondered if you could catch mullet on a fly.
    I enjoy fishing back country rivers, mainly for the environment, not so much the catching fish.
    (I don't really poke trout with a sharp stick)

    what about cheap places to get tungsten beads? they are getting pretty pricey too and it's easy enough to loose a few $ worth over the course of a day
