Hi all, thanks for not taking the pee out of my killing crocs thread :)
This is kinda a gear list but there is 1 made item and 1 changed so i'll put it here.
You can catch fish with this all day, imho its no more difficult than a rod setup.
Use a quick yank sideways on the line rather than move the hobo rod itself when you get a bite and remember to play the larger fish the same way as you would with a rod and reel.
I forget what the hobo rod tube came from but anything with a similiar length and thickness can be used.
I know a lot of you have prob used cans and the like but you can really get better castes with a bit more length and thinness.
Its also easier to wind back in. I use some 8lb line, the full 100m on here (about 95 now :) and a bit of velco to hold it in place when not in use.
I also poked a hole in the lid and tied some para cord into a loop just for more ease of use and for grabbing it in water.
I carry a selection of floats, all of which are self cockers so i dont need to carry any more weights.
My landing net has had all the frame removed, all i do is find a Y shaped stick before i fish, doesnt normally take to long to find someting suitable.
I've attached 4 lengths of para cord to each corner to attach them.
I also carry a couple of the smallest plummet stones (always good to know the depth),
lots of hooks in a small bag that hooks where brought in,
and a disgorger (even if your planning on eating the fish, its still good to be able to removed the hook if it gets swallowed.
The last thing i carry is a lightweight small but strong plastic bag for bait, a couple of handfulls of dirt or some stones keep it to the ground, it also stops any rattle when carrying it.
The lot fits easy into a small sea to summit drybag to stop any smell.
Not showing my hooks as they where hidden behind my line and i forgot.
