Have been away for the past one week. I was in Sabah as a matter of fact practicing my bait casting. Well having said that it was not much practice either as It was a few blind casts in the middle of the night into the sea. All this of course happened in front of the Shangri-La Tanjung Aru.
Juggling quality holiday time with your burning passion can be quite a feat.
My constant practice with my bait-caster set up is slowly paying off. I have had not had a birds nest so far since yesterday. The gears on the side marked 1 -10 are actually meant for reel speed. Where ten being the highest point of resistance. This discovery helped a lot and my bait casting has significantly improved.
My deepest regret would be all that spools of wasted line that i scissored away in the jetty of the waterfront in Tanjung Aru. Not to worry though friends. I made sure i binned them all proper in the bin and not blindly toss them into the sea.
Being glad with my newfound technique i realised that i have for to five spools lying around the house all with a varying degree of usage. With very poor knotting methods i trawled the net to significantly improve.
I found the ultimate guide a fisherman will ever need to learn about tying a knot. Everyone should spend at least a few mins watching the tutorials and reading the content from this baby.
I learnt how to do the ALBRIGHT SPECIAL and I will never look back again!
Kudos to the great effort that has gone into this site.
