  1. I'm a land based bait soaker, I called into the tackle shop near home a few weeks ago and had a look at the hundreds of lures on the walls. Some of the prices amazed me, I didn't pay that much for my car

    Mistake

    Hi everyone, an apology, I joined this forum a while ago under the username carpie1. Due to health issues I dropped off the forum, we also replaced our computer and lost a lot of info. I rejoined the forum and I'm glad I did, my new username is oldie. While looking through the newbie post I discover I'm already a member. If anyone can remove or delete the username carpie1 it would be great. Sorry for the mix up oldie

    Yes I have eaten Carp, Macedonian friends of my late father gave me some straight off the barby, not bad. The only problem is it takes about 3 days to prepare them for cooking.
  5. When my health started going down I sold and give away most of my coarse gear as well as a lot of good name brand rods and reels. I also sold my small collection of old solid glass rods, and reels. There was 3 old JW's among them 3 Alvey side casts a couple of Alpha center pin, Steelite side cast, Academy, a couple of old Daiwa egg beaters and a couple of very early Ryobi. My health has been stable for a while now. I have always loved my fishing, So back to the beginning I picked up a JW Black Queen, a JW Black Queen deluxe off Ebay "QLD" they were both new. The price including post was around $40, a few weeks ago my wife got me an Erskine Deluxe rod new only $18. The reels I have been using are Daiwa 1000 and a 1500 both would be well over 30 years old and still do the job. These days I mostly target the old mud marlin. Getting a decent carp on the light gear I use everything feels like a whale. Another oldie I still use when we go away is a Rex Hunt Shimano Out and Back Telescopic Combo with a Shimano IX 2000R Reel. This combo would have to be well over 30 years old. I have caught a few decent fish on it and never had a problem with the rod or reel. These days I go fishing to relax forget my problems and enjoy myself, if I catch a fish it's a bonus.
  6. There is a fishing reel museum on the net. But no rod museum, I have contacted Jarvis Walker a couple of times about old rods I had. I was told they no longer have records for there early manufactured rods
  7. Great video really enjoyed it

    Hi everyone I'm a newbie just signed up, my username is Oldie. That just about sums me up. These days due to health issues I can only fish easy accessible areas and mostly target the old mud marlin on light gear. K
