bet he loved using that rod for the dabs. he will have felt every tug through it while reeling in. much better than those stiff winter rods.Hi Bill, havnt heard anything but fished the Heugh Tuesday night from 6pm and the water was like Gin. Couldnt believe how quickly it had cleared. There were 2 lads on the LH corner down on the block spinning but wernt getting anything. We were really there cos Robbie my mate had got a Tip Tornado Lite and wanted to try it out. Just a few Dabs but nice to be out.

Bob C was it you and your mate Robbie i saw on the Banjo pier that time and one of you said you were thinking of getting a T/T Lite and had a hold of mine? It was about five weeks back and it was blowing a hooly. How does he find the rod as it is my favourite rod for summer fishing, although i use it in winter for whties and dab if the weather is good enough. The T/T Lite and the Shakey Odessa Bass is about all i use for beachcasting in the summer months. Beautifully slim blank and thin tip, yet it will OTG cast 5oz with ease and has enough power through the blank to apply when a decent fish is hooked. If you don't have one i bet you want one now!
I was on the pier Mon 23/04/07. Took my new spinning rod and reel and gave it a whirl.
No luck spinning off the end corner.
Put the float on and got a couple of small coalies on rag.
The water was clear as crystal as the tide came in. I could not see any sprats. But the way the sea is looking i bet its only a matter of weeks if not days something turns up.

Bob was that you there on Monday. With a young lad trying out new rod and reel. I thought it was a mag but it was,nt. The other guy (if it was you)had a green abu 6500 .
