I am not a Kahawhai catching champion, although I admit to catching my share. I have held a UK record and hold several medals for meritorious catches, but alas no world records. I bow to your superior prowess and envy the glory you are entitled to bathe in.
When fishing LeQuense Road this morning, I could see three torpedoes in action, although I don't know of any catches. All the anglers were happy in their work with no upsets or people crossing lines. The surfcasters, myself among them, were too busy catching fish to worry about the catches or methods of others.
Hangler, and others in his company, were happy in their little slice of heaven, I am sure you will understand being as one with nature, and to hell with others.
Sorry, I missed one of your questions. You asked where I purchased my torpedo set up. I shopped at FCO in Hastings, I like to support local tackle retailers, especially as in return they offer sponsorship to local clubs. I believe Pania have benefited quite recently but on that I may be wrong. The torpedo I purchased was a GT unit and those are not held by TT, they handle two other brands. However, don't fear, all is not lost. I purchase much of my terminal tackle and line from TT and in the past I have purchased fly-tying equipment.
Whilst I may not be a huge customer, I have done my bit and will continue to do so.
Someone asked about my gurnard hole? This is situated on the local map and marked as spot 'X'. Should I share this information with you in precise fashion, I fear I would need to kill you. My family hold gurnard as the number one table fish and I regret the location is sacrosanct. I am a little concerned at your question because at present we have landed gurnard in all the local spots we have fished, including this morning. I have also mentioned we are using a bait very popular thirty years ago but now fallen from favour. Well would you believe the gurnard this morning fell victim ... he should have kept his mouth shut as I am about spot 'X'.
