Kai Iwi Lakes Trout fishing Competition

Congratulations to Melanie Haycock, who was the winner of the Overall Heaviest Trout for the Northland Fish and Game annual competition. The Offshore Custom Sportfishing rod that she won as part of her prize was a Micro Series, 4-6kg, 10-50g, 6'3, Spin rod.  Designed with” Microwave Line Control System” guides by American Tackle Company. This guide system allows for free running of the line through the guides creating less drag and friction enabling longer more efficient casting control, also converting, ‘pushing line energy’ through a guide ring to ‘pulling line energy” preventing the line from travelling beyond the larger stripper guide and thus avoiding wind knot tangles.  Finished with Fuji GRC19 rounded rubber gimbal knock, longer butt length 15” slimline eva and Alps Graphite Reel Seat. The colour of the bindings is Gunmetal Grey and Silver highlighted with purple in the Basketweave. Tight Lines Melanie.
