I use either Sufix 832 or Fireline ranging from 50lbs to 80lb. Like I told you the other night once you are hooked on catching gallies with braid you will never look back.
Hallo Streep - yes you and Dirk are the culprits that planted the braid "seed" that is threatening to germinate ! I'll send you a email with a few questions regarding the use of braid without a leader, as I do not want to sabotage the reel thread I started here and that topic has been discussed to some length recently - still leaves me with some unanswered questions though....

Cheers


Why without an leader CC?

New Wholesale on SL30 is over R1000 incl VAT so if you can find it cheap now, take it.

Leader yes....

Protects from rocks and kelp

We fish 0.60-0.80mm and invariably you break part of the leader off and not your mainline

Yes Dirk, you know how I drool about that Saltiga Surf 30 with the red spool of yours, but like the SL30SH,it is too wide for my taste on these short little rods with their thin grips and tiny triggerseats - too heavy on top of it as well. It will be the ultimate reel for that 13'6" HMG, but if I can't find a new one, I will have to choose between the Fathom 25N and Saltist BG35H narrow spool for that rod. I will surely take you and Strepie up on your offers to cast those reels after the harvest to see which I prefer on my rod ! Thanks and cheers !

I'm not crazy of the sound and feeling of the knot going through the tiny guides of the little rods I fish, but will give it a go with 0.55 Maxima if you and Streep teach me the slickest knots.

I fish 0.60mm to 0.80mm depending on what I fish for and where - I you do not hear the knot going through the eyes of the rod...

Yes I will gladly teach you...

Hi guys,

My little setup for Gallies and Steenies is n 12ft loomis 2 piece rod with a Fin-nor ofc 16h spooled with 20 lb Suffix 832.Using 2/0 or 3/0 circle hook and 3 oz sinker.

For Blombos it work like a charm.

My 2 cents worth

Not a bad combo at all. Sold my Finnors though due to their weight.

Ja Oom Dirk - before this last comment, you were on the shortlist to be invited for the gallie braai, but you leave me no other choice than to remove your name from the hat from which the drawing will take place this month and you will be on probation till further notice ! LOL :: ifishin:wfish

Well CC if you had invited me - that means my family as well. And seeing that my daughter have a big love for our national fish means you must braai all 3 of stock in the freezer. Thus meaning that I must bring my gallie and cobbie for the braai. But the call in the end is yours my friend...

How is the press going?

Hi Dirk - the harvest is going great but hectic after the heatwave of the weekend. Maybe if I can convince you to also stalk the gallies in the little hidden holes with a small rod and reel, (those holes that most guys cast right over the top of )we might get more of the 50cm plus models that will feed more than one gallie eater at a time ? Let's make a deal - you bring a small (size 20 Daiwa/Penn 15/Shimano 14)reel and 10 to 11ft rod and I will switch to braid on the same basis - how do you like that for a deal and everyone wins ? :wfish

My dedicated gallie rods are:
1 Pentagon Baby 12 foot - paired with a SL30SH with Fireline 30lbs.
2 Purglass 14.6 foot stroke 2 shortened to a 13.6 - paired with a SL30SH with Fireline 30LBS.
3 WAFT Spinning 12.6 paired with an Ultegra 5 500 with 50 lbs PowerPro - but this line is to heavy I just not getting the distance - but the kinks I will work out this Winter time...
4 Aerocast 10 foot paired with a Sustain 5 000 with 30 lbs powerpro

Sooooo there is enough little rods
