Reviews 3 years ago 5,056 views
Here is my tackle review for the Daiwa SL30SH/SL20SH multiplier reel. A very user friendly and robust reel that is perfect for inshore fishing or heavy rock fishing from the shore. I cover basic use, the many types of fishing I use this reel for and the pros and cons. I hope this helps. 😊👍🏻🎣😉 https://jimsreelshop.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/seafishingvideos/ #seafishinguk #rockfishing #Daiwa #Sl30sh #fishingtackle

Enjoying your recent short videos on Reels and Knots. I don,t get on with these reels due to overruns, but they are strong for pulling out of snags. Funny enough i moved the position of the handle too and guess what the screw rounded off.
Like your knot videos. I recently tried the Grinner Knot. Absolutely awesome knot. Learned this on Jeremy Wade. I normally use tucked blood knot but it can get caught round the eye when tying. Not any more as the Grinner is fantastic. Maybe you could show that for others.
Great channel John. My respect and best wishes to you pal.

I would also suggest a useful video would be how to replace a knackered rod eye with a new one and how to whip one on with basic gear. I always carry a couple of spare eyes and an end eye (different sizes for different rods) and a roll of electrician's tape and some super glue with me. I had a great day ruined a few years back with eyes breaking. I later replaced the cheap eyes with better quality ones and it gave both rods a new lease of life - and saved me a few quid. On the water you can cut off the broken eye and threads and stick the replacement in place with a couple dots of superglue and then a few wraps of electricians tape to smooth it off to save the day. Its a shame that many of these budget rod blanks are actually very good and will last for years but its the broken eyes and reel seat that get most of them thrown away. I've still got fly rods I made from blanks (acquired for free from the Daiwa rejects bin back in the 70's - and they made the best pea-shooters ever too!) when I was a youngster and had my dad show me how to whip the eyes on. Not pretty but they still catch trout and chub and have never let me down. I've still got a huge old wooden drum boat reel that my Great Uncle made himself back in the 1930's and used daily for decades. Everything was made by hand including all the brass fittings and brake mechanism. Its harder work reeling in as there are no gears (hence its drum diameter) but I still dig it out occasionally for a day's boat fishing for the nostalgia value. Good fun....
Tight lines, John, and thanks for the excellent videos.
If anyone got any tips I'd appreciate it?
I would love to one day go out deep for a proper day fishing but my worry is feeling rough and being stuck out for the day
If you do still want to buy a Slosh, remember to put the brake blocks in. They don't come attached. Easily done. Also a drop of 3in1 or gear oil on the bearings might help slow it down whilst you're getting used to it. Start with a 2-3mm gap to the lip of the spool. This will help you control the reel whilst you are getting used to it. Go for smoothness in your cast. distance will come in time.
A lot of factors come into play with distance. The Cast. don't get hung up that it has to be a pendulum cast. Off the ground will get you easily over 100yds if your casting technique is good. That comes with lots of practice. Then line diameter, Balanced gear, and streamlined rigs all come into play. Check out the many tutorials online for this. Videos can explain it much better than I can. The main thing is that you have fun and enjoy the whole fishing experience. Best of luck with it.
Not bothered before due to story's of over runs and birds nests. But going to give it a bash.
We been watching ya vids for awhile now. Top advice in a straight up way. Lovely part of the country you're in too. Well jell lol
