Ichikawa K.O.S.H.

VS. The Gladiators

Testing Grounds: Natural Exotic Pond, Behrang

Series: Ichikawa K.O.S.H.

Size: 1/0

Opponents: Amazon Redtail Catfish, Asian

Redtail Catfish, Aligator Gar


I chikawa hooks from Japan are lovely hooks. They

are lightweight and sharp. The Ichikawa K.O.S.H

are hooks made for lures and being lighweight is a

great attribute and does not disrupt the balance of

the lure too much.

15


Sharp Hooks

Yes, hooks are sharp but to test how sharp we ran

them on the surface of a plastic spoon. If they are

really sharp they will grip onto the spoon’s surface.

The K.O.S.H easily caught onto the surface of the

spoon; testament to them being sharp.


17

Field Testing

Next is to test the penetration capability and

toughness of the hook. We went to the Natural

Exotic Pond in Behrang with a few K.O.S.H size

1/0 hooks to test them against the hard fighting

fishes there. We cast out fish meat baits and waited

for the fish to take the bait.


It did not take long before we were fighting fish

after fish. We did not lose fish as the hook easily

penetrated the fish’s lips easily. The Ichikawa

K.O.S.H also held on to the fish well.

19


The Ichikawa K.O.S.H is certainly one tough hook

and it did not open up and held on well even on

high pressure. We fought many hard fighting fishes

and we did not lose any. It did really well.

21


Summary


The Ichikawa K.O.S.H hooks are superb lure

hooks. They are loght weight and they performed

really well. They are sharp; easily penetrating the

lips of fishes and they held on well without opening

or bending.

Test Drives The Asian Angler

Shimano

Cruzar

Testing Grounds: Barramundi Pond, Jugra

Series: Cruzar

Model: SCRZFGW 2502

Opponents: Barramundi


F or the brand conscious angler shopping at a budget,

big brands the likes of Shimano does have a

segment of rods placed in this category. The Shimano

Cruzar falls into this category at a price that

is hard for those at a budget to turn down. So how

would such a rod fair when it comes to fishing?

37


Cosmetics

The Cruzar looks decent coming in black and

white with about two rounds of silver coloured

thread on black at the thread windings. It comes

with black EVA grip and a rubber end cap of

which is great as they are easy to clean and

helps the rod stand without slipping as easily as

metal caps do.


39

No Frills

When it comes to the components the Cruzar

comes with zero frills. Normal China guides and

reel seat, mid quality EVA handles. For a Shimano

rod at this price range nothing more should be

expected.


Blank

The Cruzar come with a fibre glass blank of

which helps make the price possible. Using such

blanks however gives the rod a wobbly feel and

usually brings the weight up but Shimano has

done a good job in keeping the weight low with

good balance.


41

Field Test

Using relatively light soft baits that had to be cast

a reasonable distance, we cast our baits out with

relative ease but accuracy was an issue most

likely due to the wobbly tip of the rod. However,

we were still getting hits.


Playing To A “C“

The Cruzar comes with minimal backbone despite

being rated 8-16lb of which lands it within

medium action territory, but it suited the fishing

here. The barramundis here bent the Cruzar

into a “C” allowing for more fun sort of fishing.

Needless to say we caught lots of fish with it

and had fun.


Landed lots of fish and had lots of fun with the

Cruzar.

43


Verdict

^ A rubber end cap allows the rod to stand with less

slipping and rubber does not soak up liquids and dirt.

The Shimano Cruzar is budget no frills rod for

anglers that want a branded rod but at a low

price. Despite being a no frills rod and a rod

with minimal backbone we still had lots of fun

and landed a good amount of barramundis.

Abu Garcia

Revo X

Spinning


49

NEW

T he Abu Garcia Revo series has been around for

quite some time, circa 2008 if memory serves me

well. It was first used on low profile reels and years

later on spinning reels designed by the Japanese

team.


The Tough... Revo X


51

Spinning

Abu Garcia recently launched the

Revo X Spinning reel, a dark reel

in black. The Revo X is a tough

looking and solid feeling reel that

operates smoothly. It is well built

with a rigid C6 (IM-C6) carbon

body design that gives the angler

a confident solid feel.


Smooth Operations

The Revo X comes with 6 HPCR stainless steel bearings

+ 1 roller bearing giving it a smooth feeling when

the handle is turned. HPCR stainless steel bearings also

provides for a longer life span as compared to normal

bearings.


53


Tough Bail System & light Rotor

While the Revo X may not be the lightest spinning reels

in the market, to lower the weight of the Revo X, the reel

comes with a lightweight graphite rotor together with a

tough bail system called the Everlast bail system that

is built tough for better durability.


55


Strong Drag


A strong drag is essential to any reel and the Revo X

comes Abu Garcia’s well known Carbon Matrix hybrid

drag system for super smooth reliable drag performance

capable of strong or rather high drag pressure to tire hard

fighting fishes quicker.

57


59

Toughness Inside Out

The Revo X is not only tough on the outside, it is also

tough on the inside. It comes with stainless steel components

for better corrosion resistance. It also comes with

a rigid and tough stainless steel main shaft that holds the

spool in place during tough battles.


Rocket Line & Spool System


Line management is important in any reel something that

the Revo X is said to be good with. It comes with a Rocket

line management system that provides better control

on all types of lines, plus the Rocket spool lip design

offers better line out during the cast allowing for smoother

flow.

61


Tough Spool


The Revo X comes with a machined aluminium spool that

is tough and will not crush under pressure during the battles

with a tough fighting fish. It is solid and rigid adding

confidence to the angler especially on higher pressure

fights.

63


Good Grip


Without a doubt, a good grip is certainly important and

the Revo X comes with a reasonably large PVC knob

with a rubbery feel that allows for a comfortable and good

grip allowing for minimal slippage.

65


Check

Them Out

The Revo X spinning comes in four sizes

being size 10, 20, 30, and 40. They

look great and tough coming in black.

favourite tackle shop next.

Conflict

II


“I am Batman (deep husky voice)... and this

is my reel.” I like all thing black but black alone

is boring. I like mine sporty too and the invention

of carbon fibre has been a blessing. Not

only does carbon fibre look sporty and cool; it

also is light weight. That is why I chose this reel,

the Penn Conflict II.

69


Sporty In Black

Just like all of Batman’s toys, the Penn Conflict II

comes in black, with black carbon fibre strips on

the rotor and the handle. It comes with a black EVA

know that is contoured for a comfortable hold. The

bail arm and wire is black and built thick.


71

Lightweight

Since I carry lots of equipment with me whether

fighting crime or fishing; my tools need to be light.

The Penn Conflict II is pretty light comparing to

other reels within the same range. I believe most

of you will like it light too.


Tough And Strong

Looks and being lightweight alone will not be good

enough for the fishing I do. I want a reel that is

tough and strong. If you’ve battled villains the like

of the Joker and Penguin you’ll see that weak tools

will not be of help. I do not underestimate the power

and strength of the fishes I am targeting too. Amazon

redtail cafishes are no softies and so are groupers;

let’s not forget the mighty giant snakeheads.


73

Braid Ready

My friend, Spidey or Spiderman uses webs to

help get from one place to another fast. Strand for

strand his web is said to be 10 times the strength

of steel. Thus why I prefer braided lines and use

them all the time. Diameter to diameter, they are

about twice the strength of mono. Maybe more.

Hence why I prefer to use braid ready spools and

this reel has it.


Take It From Batman

Well, if it’s good enough for me, it should be good

enough for you too. Oh, there is one problem. The

new Penn Conflict II is not in the market yet. It

is targeted to be launch mid 2017. Guess you will

have to be patient and wait for its launching. Meanwhile,

happy fishing.

Travel & Fish

By Sue Farley

Fishing for

Trout in

New Zealand


85

^ Summer Safari Camp at Poronui.

I f you’re planning a trip to New Zealand to fish

for those elusive brown and rainbow trout, you’ll

want to know a little about where you’re heading.

Remember that the Down Under summer

is the reverse of the northern hemisphere, with

warm balmy days from October to April in the

north of the country and November to March in

the south. It’s also the main fly fishing season.


^ Fishing from Poronui.

New Zealand is a beautiful country. Tucked

away in the bottom left corner of the South Pacific,

it’s a long way from anywhere except Australia.

And even then, it’s a three hour plane ride

across the Tasman Sea from Sydney to Auckland.

With two main islands, imaginatively called

the North and South Islands, the country spans

1000 kilometres of latitude, with the resulting

differences of climate and topography that arise

from that.


87

^ Heli-fishing from Poronui.

The North Island is essentially volcanic, and the

trout-bearing rivers and lakes generally run from

the higher altitudes of the Central Plateau out towards

the coast, or into one of the central lakes.

Studded with three beautiful high mountains, Ruapehu,

Ngaruahoe and Tongariro, and many deep

lakes including Rotorua and Taupo, the Central

North Island is steeped in Maori history and broken

by fast-moving rivers. The Tongariro River is

one of these, a rather challenging river that has

drawn fly-fishermen since the introduction of trout

over 120 years ago.


^ South Island river fishing.


89

The South Island, on the other hand, has been

wrenched from the earth by huge seismic upthrusts

and earthquakes. Its landscape is spectacular,

dropping from the high peaks of the Southern Alps

to the wide coastal plains of the east coast and

the wild ocean beaches of the west coast. You can

stand on a wave-torn, rocky west coast beach and

look inland to high snow-capped mountains, with

several glaciers in between. Once again, clear

rocky rivers tumble down through deep gorges

and across stony valleys, providing countless opportunities

for excellent wild trout fishing.

Main international gateway cities from Asia are

Auckland, in the North Island, and Christchurch in

the South Island. International flights also arrive

into Wellington from Australia, and Queenstown

in the south, giving access to the fabulous fishing

around Southland and inland Otago. This is also

very handy in ski season. Major roads are good

to drive, although drive times can be deceptively

slow because of the rugged terrain, particularly

in parts of the South Island. Driving is on the left

side of the road.


^ Lake Taupo Lodge.

The main trout fishing areas in the North Island

are around Taupo and Rotorua, and further out

towards the East Coast and Hawkes Bay. The

greater Nelson region at the top of the South Island

is a key brown trout fishing area, and there

is also excellent fishing further south through

Canterbury, the West Coast, Otago and Southland.

All these places are well-served with top

local fishing guides, and there are beautiful

luxury lodges hidden in remote locations so you

can stay and fish in quiet splendour. Three, four

and five star options provide something for every

budget.


91

^ Back country fishing from Lake Taupo Lodge.

The trout fishing season runs from October to

April throughout most of New Zealand, but there

are many areas in the North Island where an

open season runs all year in the lower reaches

of the rivers. This makes places like Taupo and

Rotorua, in the central North Island, particularly

good places to fish in winter.


^ Fishing from Tongariro Lodge.

Trout fishing is generally catch and release, and

the clear waters of most New Zealand rivers

make for some of the best sighted river fishing

for brown and rainbow trout in the world. Other

options include lake and spin fishing, raft fishing

on the white water rivers, and heli-fishing in the

remote back country and mountain areas.


93

^ Blanket Bay Lodge, Lake Wakatipu.

^ Fiordland Lodge, Lake Te Anau.


^ Chalet at Minaret Station.

New Zealand is now an incredibly popular place

to fish for trout so you’ll need to book ahead for

next season to ensure you get good accommodation

and guides in the areas you want to visit.

Where to Stay

Philemon Foo

Sea Lion Hotel

Kuala Selangor


99

When one mentions Kuala Selangor, the first

thing that comes to most angler’s minds is sea fishing.

Fishing have overshadowed the history of Melawati

Hill, its monkeys, the fort, fireflies, etc. Probably

because we always have fishing on our minds.

There are a good number of hotels there to choose

from and here is one of we recommend.

>The reception at the Sea Lion Hotel, Kuala Selangor.


Firefly Themed Rooms

One hotel that certainly stands out from the crowd of hotels

there is the Sea Lion Hotel. The Sea Lion Hotel is a

firefly themed boutique hotel that is tastefully decorated

with art pieces, nice furnishing, and little lights on the

ceiling of their rooms that mimic fireflies.

>The ceiling of the rooms look like fireflies. The colours of the

lights changes every few seconds.


101

Room Configurations

The Sea Lion Hotel has 45 rooms of various configuration

from the single rooms to family rooms.

The rooms are tastefully furnished with a mixture of

modern and artistically classic furniture. More important

are the beds that they come with. These

beds are comfortable offering a good night’s rest.

>Well decorated rooms.


Unique Pool

Yes, they have a pool that one can play in. Unlike the

usual dugout swimming pools, this pool is built on the

ground and doubles as a water feature. It has a tiled

seats for one to sit on and just hangout. Children will

certainly enjoy playing in the pool.


103

Facilities

When it comes to facilities and amenities the Sea

Lion Hotel comes with the general facilities offered

by most hotels such as hot water shower, hair dryer,

hot water dispenser (public), free wi-fi, etc. One

thing that helps them standout is that they cater to

the less-abled (wheelchair), something more hotels

should have.

>I love this chair. It is comfortable and it looks good.


Strategic Location

There are a few must visit spots in Kuala Selangor such

as the Melawati Hill where the Melawati fort, Altingsburg

Lighthouse, silver leafed monkeys, museum, etc.

are. About 5 minutes drive away from this area is one

the jetties that takes visitors on eagle feeding trips during

the day and firefly trips at night. All these areas are

a mere five to ten minutes drive away from the Sea Lion

Hotel.

>Silver leafed monkey hanging out on a cannon.


105

The area around the hotel has food outlets and

other shops. The famous seafood restaurants are

about 10 minutes drive away. If you decide not to

drive and do not want to walk much, just beside the

hotel is a restaurant.

>Fireflies shot with slow shutter speed during the fire fly

watching trip.


Personal Experience

I recently visited Kuala Selangor with my family and our

friends. We checked into the Sea Lion Hotel which was

highly recommended by a friend, and the price suited

our budget. Checking in was a breeze and they have

lifts that took us to our floor.

>Tasteful decor.


107

When I thought I could get to the room whip out my

laptop and start working, I ended up taking a nap.

My mistake was lying on the bed (was supposed to

be for only 5 minutes) and ended up snoozing for

an hour. The bed was really comfortable and the

dim firefly effect helped with the shut eye.

>Our room had a balcony.


While I didn’t go into the pool I saw kids enjoying themselves

in it with one parent on the deckchair asleep.

With the sound of waterfalls from water flowing off the

sides into a catchment of which I believe sends it to a filtration

system and back into the pool; resting there must

be therapeutic.

> Kids having fun in the pool. The pool is deeper at the other

end.


109

All in all we certainly enjoyed ourselves and had

a good rest. We didn’t have to rush to the sites as

they were nearby. We had easy access to food and

we love eating. Because of its location and facilities

we had a really relaxing trip. We only wished that

we had booked for a night or two longer.
