    Smile My Spydie went fishing!

    Spent a nice day out fishing for King George Whiting with my son and his family yesterday.

    My Spyderco Salt accompanied me for General Duties. It gets to cut up the bait and spike the fish before they are placed on ice. Because we mostly use squid for bait the knife ends up looking pretty grotty by the end of the day!

    We got on to some very nice Whiting. The largest went 49 cm. With many over 40 cm!

    We eat well tonight!

    That's some nice sized whiting mate!

    I have the same knife, with black handle, and use it to cut bait too.
    Best part is not having to baby it knowing it will never rust.

    You shallow fry them?

    How good is the salt series! Whilst definitely not my favourite knife, my little dragonfly salt is probably the most practical knife in my little collection and gets used more than most (apart from my work knives). Nice fish!

    Yes, definitely - I’m debating whether to get that or a Salt Wharncliffe Delica at the moment. A sheepsfoot Caribbean is definitely on the cards, too.

    Nice work Dutchy. Thereís few better feeds than fresh caught panfried King George Whiting, I reckon.

    Yeah, Iíve been appreciating the Salts much more this summer too. Itís been hot and humid, and Iíve been spending a bit of time in hothouses growing chillis. Iíve even been getting (mild) rust spotting on S30V, S110V and AEB-L, for the first time really in my use.

    Iíve been favouring the Pacific Salt and Tasman Salt heavily. Itís a boon to have a knife you can use for pruning and trimming any old or pest afflicted leaves away, then dip it in a container of soapy water, shake it off, and move on to the next plant, no worries.

    Hereís mine on a Carolina Reaper plant.

    I like the Native Salt elof,

    But I already have a Pacific Salt & also a Native in fluted Titanium, so at the moment, cant really justify buying one ...
