I picked up a tripod similar at Big W for $10 although quality is a bit iffy. My camera is a SLR style (not a real SLR) fuji so a bit heavier than standard and it wouldn't hold it straight, althought I think this might have to do with forcing the adjustment mechanism oopssmilie without unlocking it ...

Hi Mully, For artificial lighting would a halogen desk lamp be good. My camera is a fuji s5600 and I've been happy with the normal shots but struggled with the macro type shots. Tonight was handheld over the laundry bench, with the iso rating pushed up to 1600 to increase the shutter speed and hopef...

First go at uploading a picture so hope it works. http://lureandmore.com/userpix/203_2008_06180125small.jpg for size comparison top lure is VX 35 and bottom is the vx40. There is no weight on the packaging but feels similar to the 35. Apologies for the fuzzy picture, camera (maybe photograper) is ce...

Too much work, not enough time to do good things like fish and play with fishing tackle. Picked the Koolabung Lure up at Port Macquarie. I think the owner of Koolabung is based up here on the Mid North Coast. He has a website but the blades aren't on it. Website is http://www.koolabunglures.com/ I h...

I found an older blade on a snag a long while back and didn't think too much of it until the VX's started catching fish. When I went to look for it I'd taken the hooks and rings off it cause they must have been allrusted up. So I rehooked it and tried fishing it. Totally dead in the wate no action a...

Found today some vibration blades by koolabung lures but instead of a metal blade they have a clear poly carb or perspex blade with a blob of metal down the bottom similar to the Ecogear VX or the Swtichblade. They have a fishy style skeleton painted onto the clear bit. Similar to the glassy see thr...

I'm right handed and wind left handed. My uncle convinced me to change when started spinning for trout. Celtas hit bottom and snag fast in shallow water. Unco at first but got used to it fairly quickly. Now all spinnning reels are wound left handed, if I pick up someelse's righthand set feels really...
