Down here in Australia at present a closed trout season and closed bass season has the casting arm twitching for some action. The local waterways are still recovering from the worst devastating floods in history, leaving coffee coloured rivers and lakes. I have recently found myself finding solitude catching juvenile ox eye herring off the local weir using size 12 kebari, a Daiwa 53M with size 4.5 level line. Good fun - record 4 in a session.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
