The subject of braid captures and what constitutes the ‘line class’ or breaking strength of top shotted lines is guaran-teed to spark up a response around most cockpits. Our NZSFC Zone 2 Clubs are looking to table a proposed Fishing Rule for NZSFC adoption whereby, in simple terms, the mono top shot will be the ‘line class’, regardless of backing (braid or other) line strength. This is of course is on the basis that the Combined (ie joined) lines will break on the weakest one. This Rule, if ratified, will not apply to IGFA Record Claims until the IGFA also change their Rules to be in line with this thinking. The Zone 2 proposed Rule change will be on our website (newsletter section) shortly, please drop us a line at if you have feed-back for our Zone Delegates on this proposal.

Thank you Sandspit Marina for supporting Legasea by donating proceeds from the overnight boat stays at our 10KG competition.
And thanks to the Gamefish members who manned the bar on the Sandspit Marina Opening and those who offered to help.
It was an awesome day, enjoyed by everyone.
