Can anyone recomend a uptodate book on game fishing for beginners (from small baots) I thought I had a good general knowledge but the more I read in this section, the more I realise that I know nuffin. Hopefully an up-to-date NZ book will help.

Hi Barrie,

Save your dollars for a few weeks because we have Peter Pakula coming out from  over the ditch and it looks like he will be able to do a series of seminars. Also he will be promoting his new CD which in my humble opinion will become a bible for guys like yourself wanting to learn winning ways of gamefishing. I have been previewing this product and I think that the finished product will be worth every cent that Pete will be asking for it. On second thoughts it will probably be worth a lot more, so I guess that we should be thanking him that he will be sharing his knowledge at a reasonable price. I would say that it shows his love for the sport.

Cheers

odin

Hi ya Bazza,

You will be able to syphon a hell of a lot of up-to-date and effective information from our seminar on the 28th, but nothing and I mean nothing will get you catching big angry gamefish like time on the water...lets face it no one has ever landed a marlin while sitting on their couch reading a book, sitting infront of a computer, watching a video or attending a seminar!...talk to some guys from the club at the next meeting and get your name on their "crew" lists...I know plenty that are always looking for dependable, friendly crew members that don't forget their wallets (gas, food, bait etc)..let me know and I will introduce you to some of these fine gents!

Looking forward to it Kerren, I sit here every evening and morning with the TLD50 set up waiting for the niebours cat to pounce. I am useing a feathered lure with brown/red and white ,but alas, he still wont take it. Am I trolling too slow or have I just totally lost it?
PS..my children are becoming concerned and want me to go to the docter about it, I feel that they are being unreasonable. do you agree?
pps..I got the trailor back finally totally rebuilt with new springs and hubs. May be able to forget about the cat soon.

Try a Pakula Mouse in Secret Saurie with a slow but jerky retrieve. Better to use  SWF using a deer-hair mouse, works every time!

Barrie, try going down in line weight class and try 4.5 kg line. Your lure sounds right, just the presentation is not natural enough. Pls let me know which therapist you consult as I might need one for tackle-shopism too.

Roy, out of curiosity, what's your signature about ? I am sure I am not the only one mystified by the encryption.
