  1. Hi all, Well I have been out of Oz for over 10 years now but will be returning shortly (thank god). I was busy packing my fishing gear (which hasn't been used in all the time I've been gone) and I decided to look up some current replacements for my gear. I've a Snyder Glass MT 7144 and an MT 8144 that have been my favorites for years. So I looked up Snyder Glass and couldn't find a website for them. It also appears that nobody seems to stock them where I'm from (not that I could find anyway) .. have they gone bust? What's the latest and greatest 12-13 foot rods around now? I need to match to a Penn 850 and/or Mitchell 499 (yes ancient I know but still in perfect working order).
  2. Hi everyone, hubby and I are heading to New Caledonia just after Christmas, and he has requested travel fishing gear to fish the lagoons while I'm at the spa. So I am needing help and advice in purchasing a travel rod, reel - and whatever lures etc. I need to purchase. Wanting something that he'll be happy with, price is not a factor, although spending thousands is not my goal. Can anyone help?

  4. Broke my Nordic Stage areal gunslinger today while under minimal pressure. Was fighting a mid 30's bass on 6lb with light drag. Snapped right at the bottom of the connection between the top and bottom half. Curious to why if snapped, any information would be appreciated Cheers, Ramsey
  5. Good morning members, Well after much consideration myself and Henry are ending our time as Australian distributors of Nordic Stage. Without going into to much detail we essentially are struggling to get the newer ranges into Australia as the European market has already accounted for the manufacturing capacity. In short, if we cannot get supply to meet demand, we are left with little choice. It has been a fun journey and we have done many things we would not have otherwise done so it is not really with any regret, just a necessity. We do find ourselves with considerable stock left to and will be holding a final sale on the weekend 11th and 12th of November. Rods will be heavily discounted ranging from $60 to $250 depending on the rod. Even at the top end of $250 you are looking at rods that would have retailed for $450. Deals will also available for multiple purchases. Models available: Nordic Stage Favorite (various models) Nordic Stage Areal Pro (6.0 and 7.3) Nordic Stage Scout (various) Nordic Stage Cheater (various) Nordic Stage Limited Edition Sharpshooter (never formally released to stores) Samples: A few random sample never imported in bulk. A range of blanks will also be available (scout, joker, cheater). Details Date: 11th & 12th November Time: 9:00am - 3:00pm Location: 59 Miskin St Toowong Corner of Woodstock and Miskin RSVP: Please do let me know if you plan to attend as I will grab a few beers. Also if response is low it may affect going ahead. Thanks and I hope to see a few of you there for a chat and a deal! Angus
  6. Hi guys, First time poster, just sussing what are the rods out there koz i'll be going on a trip dunno where yet (up north) and looking to do popping and stickbaiting (off rocks/ don't have a boat) I'm getting a Daiwa Expo 5500 w/ 50lbs tasline so just trying to see what's out there for the rods. Only thought of the 792XH Demon Blood V2 as its 20% off at Motackle atm (Open to any brands). Looking to use approximately 100-150g Stickbaits/Poppers. Suggestions would be much appreciated. Cheers
  7. Hey guys, I am sort of new to snapper fishing. I have been looking at a few forums and websites, and have come up with some ideas on a good rod an reel to catch some snapper. First idea: On the shimano website I saw they were recommending a set up similar to this. Second idea: and The shimano website recommended that the most, although that reel was slightly different to what they had listed but apparently the raider is the best rod. I am open to most ideas guys and gals as I said I am still fairley new and I would preferably like to stick under the 250$ range. Cheers.
  8. Hi all, I'd like to get into fishing and I am wondering what rod and reel I should get? I'm keen to fish on our family camping trips, which are usually coastal but sometimes inland close to a river bank. Preferably looking to cast off of the rocks or off a dock, but sometimes I will need to settle for casting straight off of the beach. Is there any one rod and reel that would cover this (incl fresh and salt water)? What about lures v.s. bait? I'm happy to spend a bit of money if need be (for a decent rod that I can hold onto for a good time). Not looking to catch anything in particular, just looking for a good trustee all-rounder. Leigh P.s. I am seriously a newbie. Any good tips or guides for first timers would be great. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi there, I'm new to fishing and need some help setting up a tackle box. I know the basics: Hooks, Sinkers, Swivels, Bobbers. What other stuff should i have and what size of everything should i keep for all round fishing. I would also like to know what some good lures are for fishing around Moreton Island in Brisbane. I don't care what i catch. Anything will do :). Thanks in advance.
