Fiji Donation

#1 Post by sharksaus » Wed Sep 16, 2015 9:19 am

Hi folks
After just having returned from Fiji and witnessing the standard of living of the locals I am going to make up a fishing pack to send over to a local Village from my unused gear.
One of these locals generously took me out fishing 3 times while I was there and let me use his gear(which was pretty ordinary let me tell you)
I asked him what his hourly rate of pay was and he said $3.00 an hour which also coincided with the guy who drove us the hour and a half to the airport who was on the hugely sum of $3.60 an hour.
What i am asking is if you have any spare lures, Mono Line or any thing fishing related that is sitting in the backs of your cupboards and probably will never get used if you wouldnt mind donating to the cause.
Im not asking for any thing expensive just what you think may never get used and you can spare rather than throw away in days to come
Cheers
AL :grin:

Al I have a decent bag of stuff I can donate. When do you need it by? I should be passing through the highlands at some point during the upcoming school holidays so can drop off then.

Have a mixed tackle box, some jigs and 2 reels. They are only low end stuff but in perfect working order, rarely used. They are just leftovers from cheap combos I bought a few years back. One Daiwa, one Shimano, both 2500's.

Troopy thats the sort of stuff im looking for.
This guy had one telescopic rod which you could have pulled a tuna in with as well as a 4500 reel which had seen better days
His tackle box consisted of 3 soft plastics and about a dozen rusty hooks

Thanks again

Matto I think they are River to Sea brand. They are a bit like a Cover Cicada I guess but probably don't swim as well. Just a cheapie that I bought a few years ago and have never used.
