Throw a Skipjack Tuna on a big J-hook and toss it out in that Australian water. Come back and show us what eats it! Watch your fingers and toes....and arms and legs.Bloke wrote: ↑Mon Oct 28, 2019 10:42 pmReally cool off beat stuff here fellas.
I used to build all my own fishing rods in my younger days. This one has survived incredible well. It’s a Land Based Game stick I put together about twenty five odd years ago. The blank (bought in ‘83) is an old school Ugly Stick 6’-6” 30lb Game stick. It’s a stump puller coupled with a Penn Inter’ 30W reel. Dusting it off and thinking about doing some land based shark fishing brings back some happy memories.
I butted it up with Aftco reel seat and gimble fitting and either Japanese or America quality (can’t remember) Duralon grips which I formed.
“A” Grade threads under and over binding with Fuji SiC insert, titanium framed guides.
Aftco Roller Tip.
That's really beautiful Shane! Is it copper and silver?
That would be the way to go Lance, for sure. Bonito go pretty good and our big Sea Mullet make good dead bait.
Thank you! They are copper and nickel, all made from quarters and the smaller one is from dimes. I'm still struggling with with cold shuts, where the material will not fuse together properly. I'm using a small two brick forge and a hammer to make them, I think I would have better luck using a press. I'd like to get a nice billet to make some swiss army knife scales or a ring, but I still need to keep practicing to get a billet without the cold shuts.The Meat man wrote: ↑Sat Nov 02, 2019 6:10 pmThat's really beautiful Shane!
