Wind Ons

Update - 30 Jan 2014

Been a while since I posted some info up here so thought i better get organised and get some info onto my site.

I can now offer any of my leaders with a snap clip.  My stock lines will be the 45 and 55 lb mono leaders with clip but any of the leaders can be fitted with clips on demand.  Im fitting 80 lb Shogun coast lock snap clips to my leaders.  These clips are light enough to allow even the lightest of lures both hard bodies and rubbers to swim correctly, however they are tough enough to take the treatment that a big barra will hand out.

Jigging Leaders

Jason Stammer contacted me and had us manufacture some special 80 lb x 12 metre leaders for him to use for jigging.  the leaders worked really well as evidenced by the great pics that Jason sent in - Jason writes -

"I have included a photo of a sounder reading which shows the typical ground we were fishing on. As you can see the reef rises and falls 10 metres, hence this is why I wanted the extra length of 12 metres on the mono leader  to keep the braid off the reef.

 
The guys I fished with were using 6 metre leaders and I am sure they will source extra long ones from you when we go back same time next year.

20 Lb leaders slay the Toga

Headed out to trial the new 20 lb leaders at Cooroboree today - bit windy on the salt water so a quick change of plans and into the fresh I went.  Plenty of sign of fish around with tarpon busting up everywhere.
Fished with 20 lb mono leaders today and nothing else.  Following some inside info from Colin from Reidys lures the techniques was simple - cast lures into the stems of the lillies and hang on - first to hit the deck was a nice fat 60 odd cm barra followed by plenty of saratoga - heaps of weed but thats the nature of the beast - at times I had to drag the fish out and got the salad as well as the fish but the 20 lb leaders worked a treat.

New Products on the way

Well its been a while - been at the PMs pleasure - not in Goal but away doing my job - was a good experience and allowed me to do some serious R&D on the leaders.
Am happy to be able to offer 8 & 10 lb flouro carbon leaders for chasing those elusive bream. Manufactured using 30 lb dacron and a new manufacturing process that allows me to insert fine leader into the dacron these should be a big hit.  Will get around to geting them up on the sales page but for now feel free to email me at shandoevy@hotmail.

Bluwater Leader Feedback

Hi Shane
 
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to compliment you on your wind on leaders. I have been using your 110lb leaders in Dampier while targetting marlin and sailfish. They have never let me down and I find that using a wind on makes it much easier to control and tag fish at the boat. I recently landed 3 marlin and a wahoo on the one leader all in the same day and the join looked like it was still brand new. They are an excellent product.
 
Thanks

Micks Metre barra

Townsville fisho Mick reports catching a 112cm barra using a 30 lb Shane Doevy Wind - awesome Mick - send in the pics for a discount on the next purchase mate

Out of left Field

I was recently contacted by Charles Armstrong enquiring about my leaders and a non fishing use.  Charles races model yachts and was looking for a product to restore his yachts.  After some correspodence I sent some samples to Charles and he was over the moon.
Like I said a bit out of left field and not a fishng post but another happy customer.

Cheers

Shane
