I'm pretty sure my other purchase would have a good crack at pulling up that decking! :lol:

We were looking for a water dog but don’t have acres of space so we stumbled across the Toller breed, a bit smaller than a retriever fully grown and fond of a swim so hopefully it will be a good fit.

Yeah I’m itching to get it out. It won’t arrive for another couple of weeks, Richard will be doing a run over to Perth to deliver some skis for the Doctor ORS race happening over there and then is going to bring the Pinny back with him.

After signing up for NSC2018 I started looking around for a reasonably priced heavy spin rod & reel. I didn't want to spend too much given it's something I wont use that often and came up with the following.

Bargain 1 - MELALUKA PINNACLE 6'6" 8-12kg rod.
I bought this one on ebay for $0.99 (+ $17 shipping) so didn't really have high expectations. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised as it looks like a reasonable rod. Time will tell but for $17.99 I figure I don't have a lot to loose.

Bargain 2 - Bozos 10" Kingi Kruncha Soft Plastics
Some of the guys on here had been recommending these. They didn't have the plain white I was looking for but at $10 for 2 packets posted I thought these looked like a decent option for Kingies if they're around.

Bargain 3 - Pfluegar Salt 60
A mate of mine has had one of these for a while and is happy with it. Anaconda are clearing them for $100 at the moment and the local BCF was happy to price match (Anaconda were out of the size 60 I wanted). They've had some decent reviews and for $100 feel nice and smooth in the hand.

Just need to spool it up with some brickies string and I'm ready to go :up:
