Well today was the first time I have actually caught a fish using the small pocket sled kite!
One snapper 40cm and a gurnard similar size, must have set at least 10 times with just 2traces on and got them both on the first set and then nothing else. But still learning the correct weights etc for the area and tide. Was at the bluff north of dargaville.

 So what in the hang is a pocket sled kite?
OK so I google  pocket sled kite

And by coincidence, yesterday our eldest grandson asked me to tie his new kite onto the reels..as they where heading out to Kariotahi beach for the day at the same time showing him a Uni knot
 Now Im wondering what he was/ is using the kite for....???

I just have from memory when I bought it a 24kg rollertip rod with a Penn gti2 with 22kg braid and can get 350-400mtrs off the reel so actual distance would depend on rips and weights used.
