If you are coming to Portugal i recommend the Rota Vicentina. It's a 125km made up of old fisherman paths next to the shore. You can set up camp in deserted beaches and nearby cliffs. Pretty based, and not very easy as there are long sections in loose sand.

Spoons and kastmasters of various sizes. Both gold and silver. Diamond jigs are great. I also love 1oz gotcha plugs and just about any Carolina surf angler will tell you the same. They're better on the pier but they still slay in the surf. Outside of that I'd recommend trailers of bucktail or just tipping your hooks with bait.

Natural baits to use include finger mullet, shrimp, sand fleas, blood worms, pinfish, and croaker. All can be alive or dead or cut up. Fishbites works well too.

For your bait rigs use wire leaders and run something like a high low rig or do a fish finder rig.

For most of your lures you won't need wire leader. I use braid with everything and it's my main line on my bait rods.

I fly fish the surf as well and for that I use a 9ft 8wt with intermediate and sinking line. I like big deceivers, gamechangers, surf candies, and sand flea imitations. Always use a bite tippet.

What do you think a spincasting reel is?

Only half joking. I mean, if manually operating the bail of a spinning reel is too much for you, then maybe that's what you need.

Additional complexity for a pointless gimmick, IMO. Just one more part to break.

But hey, at least they still look to have switchable anti-reverse, which Shimano seems to have removed from most of their higher-end reels.

I mean what was the last one? Even after spinning reels people still use conventional gear. The next big step will probably be factory ceramic gears and smooth fully sealed reels.
>>
>>1498192

i have thoughts about this before and i dont think we can see any evolution over current models until theres a breakthrough in perpetual physics for casting distance. at the moment, current reel technology encircles a free spinning reel where resistance is equivalent to the drag of the spool and inexorableness of line friction. until a weight system that thereby provides more output than input, where force of casting can be exceeded by negating effects of degrading forces.. we will not be able to see advancement in reel technology.

I have tried cowboy coffee, those hard plastic french presses, and an old fashioned stovetop espresso maker. Ultimately the best option I've found for coffee inna woods is actually nescafe clasico instant coffee. It is the closest to a real cup of coffee I've had for the weight.

Recently however, I got food poisoning and was unable to eat or drink anything for 3 days. The caffeine withdrawal headache finally went away after 4, and I started questioning whether I actually wanted to go back to drinking coffee every day. I now have an 8oz cup on saturday and sunday, but have been drinking tea throughout the week every other day. This got me thinking, though... I can have a really good cup of tea innawoods for the same weight and volume as a shitty cup of instant coffee. Why wouldn't I do that? Does anyone else opt for tea instead of coffee while /out/?

>If another cried out—‘The coffee is coming immediately.’—‘Yes,’ he would retort, ‘and so is the next hour: and, by the way, it’s about that length of time that I have waited for it.’ Then he would collect himself with a stoical air, and say—‘Well, one can die after all: it is but dying; and in the next world, thank God! there is no drinking of coffee, and consequently no—waiting for it.’ Sometimes he would rise from his chair, open the door, and cry out with a feeble querulousness—‘Coffee! coffee!’ And when at length he heard the servant’s step upon the stairs, he would turn round to us, and, as joyfully as ever sailor from the mast-head, he would call out—‘Land, land! my dear friends, I see land.’ – Thomas De Quincey, “The Last Days of Immanuel Kant”, 1827

Somewhat related, my Maglite Mini like OPs pic always fucking explodes batteries if I don’t use it often.

But the leaky alkaline batteries aren’t explosive enough for me so now I use these $10 China-tac flashlights and stick a Li-Ion in them. They came with tubes for an 18650 if the buyer got bored of 3xAAAs, but these 3350mAh cells (20650?) fit perfectly in the spot where the AAA carrier used to go. No protection for the cell but whatever, they last a long time too.

I've been very happy with my Mankerlight E03H. Red filter is a nice touch for operational oper8ing. Cheap enough that you won't cry if you lose it, small enough to pull off the headband and comfortably pocket carry for camp chores (in addition to the big bulky POS issue headlamp.).

>The professionals strapped $30 AAA maglites to their gun

In the modern flashlight market, nearly everything is manufactured in China. In fact they own the LED market. This has led to multiple lines of products from even the best manufacturers out there (low-tier business don't care) where they have an "authentic" line with a price to backup the quality, only components restricted to China are produced there, and then a "novelty" line with components made as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Guess what OP's is.

Did my first climb on real rock a couple days ago, after only gym bouldering for about a year. Getting prepped for some mountaineering in the summer so practiced rappelling first then climbed top rope, up the 50ft face and holy shit, not having the colored holds meant all the feeling around and time spent up there had my arms pumped like rocks by the end. I'm lucky I know a guy who has all the gear as I slowly build up my own stuff so I have to mooch of him less and less. He said I should try lead next time we're out, so that'll be interesting.

Going to be canyoneering in an area where I need to retrieve all my anchoring set up and rope once I hit the bottom. Is this a good set up? I’ll have it around a tree trunk and I’ll attach a retrieval cord to my ropes figure eight knot.

Can I grow a handful of herbs in a single trough type planter that I can move easily inside for the winter or do they all have specific enough requirements they have to be in separate pots?
I really only want rosemary, time, cilantro, and maybe basil
Also how big of a pot do I need for blueberry bushes? I'm pretty sure theyll survive outside here in 7a/b but I kind of want the option of a hothouse for all year production
[spoiler] I've never planted anything before and theres so much conflicting information out there I have no idea where to start [/spoiler]
>>
>>1498095
>planter

Yeah, just make sure it can drain well. You'll need to check soil type requirements. Some like dryer stuff than others.

>blueberry

Low bush cultivars (hard to find) needs smaller pots and are very small. High bush cultivars (easy to find) can be gargantuan. A smaller pot will only bonsai them to a certain degree. Anything over 5 gallons will be the least you could get away with. 15-20 gallons would be better. Blueberries need a certain number of frost days, or they will not fruit. Thus, they need a winter cycle. Their roots shouldn't freeze like out on a patio in a pot in winter.

>>1498101
So what your saying is if I buy a basic Bush from a local nursery and some meme strain from gimmick site like fastgrowingtrees, I'd be better off planting them in the ground next to each other than keeping them in pots?
I know I need at least 2, like apple trees
Which brings me to my next dumb question: what's the general consensus on those gimmicky online nurseries, like fastgrowingtrees.com, most of the reviews on and off their site are positive and they have some fairly interesting stuff
