Insane double hookup !
ly didn’t want to carry two rods; I’m clumsy enough in daytime and two rods in the dark was asking for trouble. Two bits of kit I should have had? A second empty Omnispool because I just didn’t have the energy when back in camp to remember to put the line back on its spool. Mono. I had taken Fluro with me but, for a variety of reasons, they prefer to use Mono. Two bits if kit not to leave behind? A spare head torch 112
as you are at a significant disadvantage if you lose yours or if it breaks. Clear safety glasses. Not what you would normally think to pack but eye protection shouldn’t stop when daylight fades … One thing I wasn’t comfortable with? Casting in the dark. My iffy back means that I can’t turn to watch my line as many do (too many heavy backpacks), so I have to cast purely by feel. Turns out that was an advantage in SPORTFISHING ADVENTURES | Q4 2019
Camp, once reached, was far beyond what I had imagined.
