    AFC 2008 Monduran round - Leaders

    Gee ..... after just watching the Monduran round .... Unbelievable !

    What surprised me were the amount of fish that were lost to blown leaders

    Was it a case of nerves , panic , pressure & impatience - ???? for all the skill of these guys - I was surprised!!!

    Interested to hear your thoughts ..... on the footage , fighting tactics , drag pressure & leaders ........... no one used twisties - Why not ?

    Cheers

    Lots of it Steve
    Impatience was evident right through the barra rounds ....... & some of the net shots were shockers

    Sounds like you were surprised too

    Quite suprised Chris!!!(I missed Awoonga round). The most suprsising (and disappointing part, as of the culprits are quality barra anglers) was how hard they were going on them in open water!!

    Notice the free spooling to position the boat by the yank...perfectly done.

    I was suprised by how high some of the rod angles were. Mind you it may well have been full of nasties just under the water that they were trying to keep the fishout off. Cameras dont show the whole view that the anglers were seeing I guess. Some nice fish though.

    G'Day Craig, how things up your way? Is the Pinnicle pub shut today

    I agree, the rod angles were high, but they got lower as the comp went on!!! It made good jumping footage....when the fish stayed on!

    Obviously not staying in contact with ausfish Its been raised on several occasions recently.......... but yeh ... it stood out !

    Yeh the yank backed off while the locals went just as hard even when the felt contact with timber

    This is some of the best footage of what not to do .... that I've seen

    Chris

    PS ..... Mottys blown fish A running fish ( Kerrin with net in his hand) & the boat stationary ............. The fish got to the trees & bang ........ Far out

    Yeh it is easy to be critical (arm chair expert ) ........ & yes its easy to make errors in judgement - - - but this was something more......... & it happened a few times ....... & that stood out ( specially on the same boat) ........... I know I'd be saying WTF!!!!

    There was a lot to get out of it ....... some good rod work too

    The 120cm was a beaut. I thought the partner would have done a bit more boat positioning to assist the guy hooked up instead of saying 'stay on fish' or just watching - lack of teamwork. I am a beginner at barra, but thought the same as you guys.
