  • DO NOT leave your rods unattended.
  • 15lb minimum main line.
  • No braided main line. (ok to use on spod and marker rods).
  • The use of lead core is banned.
  • No death rigs or bent hook patterns. Ensure you always use safe rig set-ups.

  • ALWAYS keep an unhooking mat or cradle under a fish for photos at all times.
