Your home if you fish from anything that isn't floating.

Great work Andrew! I was super jealous when I saw the pic on Friday haha.

Should do a landbased fish soon!

Acsle, I think they listed it as about 5.4kg (12lb) in the day. I've got it upgraded with greased carbon fibre drags, running 8kg mono so only need about 2-3 kg of smooth drag. I like it just for it's hardiness, can take a beating in the sand, easy to pull down and service, built like a tank. If anyone has any of these old reels lying around I'd be happy to take them off their hands!

Cheers,
Andrew
