I've been pretty much out of the "other" tackle now for number of years, being interested only in flygear and trout fishing. As a good friend of mine says, you've gone over to the dark side, gone over to the sweet water. With getting the yak, its been a nice change actually, going back to the salt. Today, I made my first real purchase on the "other" side and I'm pretty chuffed. I also came clean to my significant other...she just rolled her eyes - the kids happened to lock the front door grill while I was out so I had to ring the bell and be let in.

Here it is - diawa heartland rod and tica 3000 reel. I was particularly impressed with the finish and action of the heartland.....ummm...bullen merri...cant wait

Philip,

I bought a 6' 1-3kg heartland recently. Matched it with a Stradic 1000. Simon's son caught the first legal fish on the outfit last week. It casts really well and has a nice feel. Hoping to load it up tomorrow

I have had a Heartland for about 3-4 years now and love it dearly. I have caught everything on it from little whiting to 2 ft shark and a nice size trevally in Mackay. It goes everywhere with me. I have my IM6 2-6lb teamed up with an Okuma Longbow 30 (actually a baitrunner) and 4lb Fireline. Great for the SP's and HB's even a little 10g raider.

Nice looking combo Philip. I just counted up the number of rods I now have. I can't say because Mrs Hoit has been known to read my posts :wink:

Just go in the closet and count the pairs of shoes and handbags she has.
Usually works pretty good. :wink:

Hi Les, despite Mrs Hoit claiming I had more rods she in fact has twice as many pairs of shoes. :p
