Don't worry Fishos! My gear was all match gear or fly gear so not really suited to Oz. I've kept the proceeds to one side and first priority when we arrive is to go to the local tackle shop in Christies Beach and spend spend spend! I've already bought some gear over here, reels, braid, soft plastics etc.
Hope the mrs doesn't read this, if you do my love I mean I'm gonna find a job first - honest:) Then go fishing!
oh yeah...i agree with cornish..although its not bad price overhere....but my oh made sure its the first to be packed!
Have you ever tried fly fishing off the beach, tried it off a boat once in the Tamar river ,bloddy good laugh with a 7lb bass on the end of it.
