Welcome to Sabah

In the last few postings, I've mentioned that my fishing equipments were on their way to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. I have made prior arrangement to bring them over earlier. Good news...!!! They arrived safe and sound (and in 1 piece) yesterday morning. I didn't bring down all by rods and reels. Just brought down those that I usually use. Here are some photos of my equipments that arrived.

:::... Rod rack ...:::

:::... Mini cabinets (with misc. accessories) and drawers ...:::

:::... Main lines, leaders and tackle box ...:::

:::... My reels ...:::
I will be assembling my rod rack later. I plan to sand paper the rod rack so that the finishing would be smoother and I also plan to repaint the rod rack. I will be do a separate posting on the rod rack. I will also include the dimensions of the rod rack so that any DIY enthusiast out there can do the the same rack.

Upcoming DIY Projects

I have 2 DIY projects in mind at the moment. I plan to work on them as soon as my stuffs arrive from KL. Below are the projects that I plan to work on.

  • Rod Rack
  • Line Spooler / Despooler
Rod Rack
I already have a rod rack which was purchased a long long time ago. (Read : Rod Rack). The rack was in KL collecting dust. I have deassembled it for ease of transport. During the deassembling process, I found out that the rack was quite easy to make. I have decided to blog about the assembly process once the rack arrives. I will be sand papering the rack and repaint the rack back to make it more presentable. I will also be including the dimensions should any of you wish to make it yourself.

Line Spooler / Despooler
I used to own a line spooler / despooler when I was still in KL. (Read : Daiichi Line Spooler). I sold it off to a fellow fisho when I moved to Sabah. I do not plan to buy another line spooler. Instead, I will be making my own line spooler / despooler. I will based the design on the previous line spooler that I had. I also did some research over the internet on various line winder design. I shall be blogging more on the line winder once I get started on the line spooler / despooler. I have a few different designs in mind, and I will be make some minor adjustments as I go along making the line spooler / despooler.
