Mark has been raving to me for ages about how screws for ice-racing motorcycles can be used for studs in wading boots. Shaun has taken the plunge and bought some, his review is here – many thanks mate.
Especially if you go to another supplier, Mark tells me that the coarse or self tapping thread is the one you want. The fine thread has to be screwed into a nut or threaded hole.
“These are the ones I use (image from here). A couple of tips:
- Shoe must have a VERY hard sole. Soft sole and they will fall out after a while.
- When screwing them in put some glue (aqua seal or shoe goo) on the thread.
Shaun has provided a quick review of his success replacing his normal tie laces with those curly ‘lock’ laces. Just like reverting back to kindergarten days but they work.
Leon continues his search for carp on fly experimenting with interesting rigs. Here he discusses using Skagit heads in innovative ways including on single handed rods. We apologise but the yellow mono running line is a bit hard to see in the photo above,.
JM has been experimenting with home repairs of his precious sandals and hiking boots. He thinks he’s found the best so far.
JM got one of these TV special lures for Christmas and he’s provided this review – doesn’t seem totally positive about their utility
This is more of a description of the system I’ve assembled in my 4WD to carry my setup rods.
JM has out done himself. Not only has he offered this gear review on a Berkeley Nomad pack baitcaster rod, it turns out that the report encompasses a trip report on snapper fishing in the Bay of Plenty New Zealand. Thanks muchly Jason and keep up the contributions.
Our ever energetic President has produced a review of his latest new SPOT Connect and compares it with his older Messenger locator beacons.
Most of us are aware of the Personal Locator Beacon revolution that has been going on. Many of us own one in case of emergency when angling in the back country. The SPOT system is slightly different and uses the Globalstar communication satellite system to be able to send pre-determined messages rather than declare an all-out emergency.
