Does anyone know if Gilbertís in pleasant point still does the re- silvering of Zed spinners anymore.
Or maybee another alternative business that does a nice silver , not stainless.
There used to be a place in Bromley as well I  think.
Ya never know there might be some salmon there this season.... go to be prepared  Smiley

Ah, salmon, those were the days... Is chrome platers in timaru still going? I always found their double silver coating to be the most robust and they were the cheapest too. If you get a drill-mounted cloth linishing wheel and some autosol and polish the shit out of them before coating they come out so much better. Probably better to spend your money on soft plastics and join the hordes at the canals......

Haha yeah youíre right for sure. Addiction to the cause .. Salmon fishing  Grin.
Some of the stories I could tell would make these young fellas eyes pop out.  Shocked
Somehow canal salmon just donít cut the mustard.In fact Iíve never bothered.
Even though thereís bugger all Salmon round these days I still am addicted to the Rakaia. Just love being there.Soft plastics , theyíre good on the lagoon sea run trout... but theyíre only trout Grin. Tight lines and hot triggers Ripshitnbust.
