Hi there, thanks for your reply, do you have a cathedrel hulled boat? Do you think cathedrel hulls can take a bashing from the weather, good for offshore?
Thanks

My shakesphere IN2 reel has broke, any repair?

Hi there, I have a reel and the little metal loop that is used to flip over when you cast has come off at one side, and when I try to put back in it falls out again, Should I try hard bonding glue?
Thanks

Mackerel Feathers

Hi there, I went down the tackle shop & bought some feathers, ( Hok Eye ones) however I have noticed when I had opened them, where the feather is and is connected to main line, it is real short compared to my other feathers that have a rather long feather line connection. Is there anything wrong her...
