Attacking The Rocks...
  • 0
It has been a long interesting process but the stones are starting to become familar territory... Now do not get me wrong, there will be forever more to learn and nearly each trip provides more surprises for us but the results are getting more and more consistant. The fish can be surprisingly spooky as we are not talking about a distant renote location. This leads to us using the lightest gear we can get away with which while producing a lot more hook ups, certainly equals a lot more smokings! Although surface is great fun plastics are the most productive lures worked with 20-30lb braid and 30-40lb leader. As robust as this seems and although this lb class is bale to wrangle some decent fish, there are still some absolute freight trains to appear to have no idea they are hooked. Rods of choice have included the 20lb 7.8 Dynamic, 10-22lb Cheater and 30lb 9 foot Scout. It is out firm hope by the end of the year to have at least a 1m Kingy and 90cm GT to show for our first! Good ...

Hervey Bay Trip: Trevally Town!
  • 0
Did a road trip with dad yesterday and spent the day on Hervey Bay with Andrew Chorley from Hervey Bay Fly & Sportsfishing...  The original plan was to head out chasing Tuna which was not to be as easy as hoped for two key reasons...  1: A 20 knot SE made heading far out of the Islands protection tough to say the least.  2: 6 Tuna were actually hooked with each one becoming shark food within a minute or so.  We made the executive decision to save more tuna becoming shark food and look for something else.  This is what I love about Andrew's knowledge and mind set... If something if not working he always seems to find something else to do. Yesterday it turned out to me copious trevally! Dad was the first to hook up with a solid Golden on a Nordic Stage Scout. A first for him on several accounts being style of fishing, species of fish etc... Soon we found the brassy trevs and they started coming in thick and fast with my Nordic Stage Dynamic F1 doing the hard ...

Finesse Start To The Barra Season
  • 0
Since the barramundi season kicked off a few months ago we have been inundated with awesome pictures of some great barra of Nordic Stage rods. The largest majority of these have been pretty great fish caught on rather finesse gear. The angler's in question have been relying a patience and great skill to pull these beasts from most often quite skinny water. Vinnie Versfeld has been having cracking success using a variety of rods including Nordic Stage Favorites, Areals and Dynamics. Most fish have been getting caught on the surface provding that little extra rush and some very interesting bycatch (pictured below) has been included! Some more of the many Barra Vinnie has been tangling with... Robbie Wells from Sun 2 Sea has also been getting in on the action up in North Qld... Stalking the banks of some pretty rugged waters after the cyclone he managed a fair few heatlhy and dark coloured barra like this one on his Nordic Stage Dynamic... Cracking the code to where the Noosa River ...

Putting A Prize To Get Use
  • 0
"This great little write up was sent to me by young angler Bryce Francis. This lad nows hoe to wrangle big fish on light gear"! Last year in the Summer Classic, I was won the lucky draw prize of a fishing trip with Andrew Chorley from Hervey Bay Fly and Sport Fishing valued at $600. Unfortunately due to strong northerlies, our first booking in early December had to be rescheduled to the end of January. It was forecast 12 - 18 knots but South East this time, so we would be protected by Fraser Island. We met Andrew at the boat ramp and headed out in the bay. We fished a few spots with only a small cod, so we headed further North along the inside of Fraser. Andrew took us to a little reefy spot that had heaps of bait and big arches on the sounder. Casting a Zman 5" grub I landed a small mid-60s GT. The next drift over the bait school I hooked into something solid with my Nordic Stage Dynamic F1 6'7 and after about 10 minutes I pulled  in an 86cm Golden. Things went a bit quiet ...

Finesse Jigging For The Win
  • 0
A lot lighter than many would consider appropriate for deep water jigging... When I first started getting serious about fishing the terminology "Jigging" usually conjured images of huge kingfish, samson fish and other herculean denizens of the deep. Fish aside, gear expectations would have been nothing short of 10-20k reels, 100lb line and short powerful rods. In far more recent times however my eyes have been opened to a massively different understanding of jigging, specifically in a more finesse style. With several of the Nordic Stage Team actively engaging in this pursuit, I thought it was high time to ask some questions and present the answers to  the larger Nordic Stage fan base. A hefty bludger trevally jigged up on a Nordic Stage Favorite... Offshore deeper water has been the realm of heaver jigging for a long time now. However, for the patient angler finesse applications can be utilised in these conditions. A preference to go to a finesse approach can about either due to ...

Inshore fun with the F1
  • 0
    I love my mangrove jack fishing but due to the recent cold snaps I’ve found myself venturing out to the inshore reefs of Noosa to satisfy my piscatorial desires. The main species I have been catching are some thumping Grassies, the odd snapper and freakishly late for the season I have been enjoying crazy sessions on school and Spanish Mackerel. I am starting to gather quite an arsenal of Nordic stage rods however lately the F1 has been my goto weapon for the inshore waters. I have been using it to spin, flick plastics and also for sinking a few baits back down into a burley trail. I have found the slowish taper of the F1 to be a great asset suitable for all these styles. I know it’s almost a sin to use a rod this good for bait fishing but when it’s loaded up you really appreciate the value of using a rod of this calibre. When fishing the burley trail with circle hooks the advantages of the rod came clear. F1 gave a little time for the fish to pull and firmly mouth ...

Nordic Stage Dominates Noosa Fishing Competition
  • 0
Craig Morley, Tim Milat and Cooper Lau rocking the Nordic green! Each month the staff at Davo's Tackle World Noosa host an exciting fishing competition aimed appealing to the whole community. Proceeds go to charity and although the prizes are not sheep stations, this event draws some of Noosa's finest anglers. Categories vary in these events from overall length of combined species to induvidual species and versatility of fishing (due to both species and time of year) usually produces the winners. Craig with his winning trevally... Last weekends event was divided into four species fairly common throughout the Noosa system during winter, these being Trevally, Tailor, Bream and Flathead. Tailor were conspicuously absent from the weigh in this year but the winners for the other 3 categories had one something in common... They all caught their fish on Nordic Stage rods! Cooper with his 1st place winning Flathead... Using a variety of Nordic Stage rods including Areals, Areal Pros ...

Testing the waters
  • 0
It's been a long time between drinks for me and I was quick to say yes when Chris offered to take me out in the bay. The crisp morning and beautiful sunrise of oranges, pinks and blues quickly reminded me of why I love get up a stupid o'clock and do everything I can to get out and fish.                     On board with us today I brought with me a few of the newer rods in our stables so I could continue to learn the details of some that I had already fished with and then to learn the new details in ones that I had yet to fish with. The Areal Pro 7 and Artist 7"6 were the rods I was already familiar with. Both similar on paper but boy are they different in the hand. I'd paired these with an Exist 1003 and Luvito 206 respectively. The Scout 9" 30lb and Dynamic 6"2 14lb were the 2 that I had yet to really play with and I was hoping to really hook up on those to see what they can do under pressure. ...

Jungle Time: Short Rods Reign
  • 0
              Australia and even more specifically South East Queensland is a funny place in regards to perceptions on rod lengths relative to applications. By far and way the most popular lengths for lighter more finesse rods are your typical 7 foot models in a 1-3 or 2-4kg range. This of course makes perfect sense for those anglers casting lures over flats all day as longer casts by percetage equate to more ground covered. However, there are so many other forms of fishing regularly undetaken that really suit a shorter rod for several reasons. This fact was no more apparent than a recent trip I had to Townsville to visit Nordic Stage Field Staffer Vinnie Versfeld to fish with him on his home territory.                                                                  ...

Noosa River Barra: A Growing Viability
  • 0
Due to the Nordic Stage ranges success on QLD’s Sunshine Coast I often feel obliged to head up and visit the team at Davo’s Tackle World (the Sunshine Coasts exclusive dealer of the range) for a chat and of course a fish! One thing that has been of huge interest to me over the past few years has been the undeniable increase in the number of Australia’s iconic barramundi turning up in the system. For over 25 years I have been visiting the Davo’s store and there have always been the odd rumour, and even an even rarer photograph of one of these amazing fish being caught within the Noosa River, often as large flatty or jack by catch. However in recent times, a small handful of dedicated anglers have proved that barramundi have moved from being a species merely whispered about in passing, to a viable target species. A collection of fish caught in our 2012 mission testing the then brand new Nordic Stage Favorites... Despite many recent captures being made in the lower reaches, ...

Dynamic F1 In Action
  • 0
  When the Dynamic F1 12 lb first hit the Australian market I was into my local store (Davo's Tackle World Noosaville) to check them out. The first thing I noticed was the lightness of the rod, yet they are a powerful and stong for a finesse style of fishing. I grabbed one straight away. My first thought was this rod is perfect for the all powerful and dirty fight mangrove jack. Loaded with 15 lb and Shimano Sustain 2500fg the balance is just perfect for this rod.Out the door I was heading for the Noosa river to see what I could test it out. A 50+ cm mangrove jack was the first victim! Fishing a heavily structured area I couldn't give him much room to run so I put the hand on the drag gave it a turn and basically locked it giving it very little line at this point to turn his head away fror the first bit of structure it was heading straight back to. The bend in this rod at the point just amazed me the top half was perfectly bent and you still had the force in the bottom half if a a little more ...

Testing the Dynamic on some Pelagics & Reef species!
  • 0
Now the Nordic Stage Dynamic F1's have landed in Australia, it was time for me to lay my hands on one and test it out on both some reef and pelagic species. So I chose the Dynamic F1 7'7 16lb. The first day I used it, I had caught 4 mackeral around the 9kg mark and a nice cobia and trout. The reason I like this rod as an allrounder outside rod is because it is a nice length rod to cast slugs and floaters out the back but at the same time a great rod for fishing soft plastics, jigs and baits vertical off the bottom which i have been doing. Also the Nordic Stage Dynamic F1 7'7 is only a 16lb rated rod but is a nice stiff blank, so if you do hook something big you can rely on the strength of the rod to stop it at times as reef can get in the way. Also the rod can take alot more pressure then what it is rated to if you have not already used one. If your after an allround offshore rod around the $380-$400 mark I would strongly suggest the Dynamic F1 ...

Testing The New Dynamic F1 - DYFS-602L
  • 0
The desire for this rod  (DYFS-602L) on the Australian market was for a powerful yet light skinny water rod suitable to the many bush bashers and kayak fishermen adveturously fishing many of our waterways. This weekend I wanted to ascertain how powerful the rod was, or in short, how much pressure I could get on a fish to prevent it taking me back into the snags. The test this application we chose none other than the powerful Mangrove Jack as a desired test subject. Not a fish to be taken lightly and not a fish to found easily, we knew this was optimistic but we were pleasently surprised. The fish was taken right on dawn and made one initial brutal run... The rod however loaded magnifecently and, despite an awkward angle, removing it from under its bridge proved no great feat. Next came a smaller fish which was once again easily subdued. I look forward to testing this rod now on some skinny water bass in snag ridden country! Henry had some fun of trevally while this was all going on, in his ...
