Camping show thrills punters once again
The final day of the Lismore 4WD Caravan Camping and Marine Show is tomorrow and if you haven't been you just might miss out on some tasty treats that are a little smaller than a caravan.
We went looking for some of the more unusual things you could find at this year's Lismore 4WD Caravan Camping and Marine Show.
First up was an interesting knot-less tackle for those fishermen out in the community.
The unusual device allows you to 'wind on' your tackle.
Colin Whitfield of Australian Tackle Company said the 90 per cent breaking strain and stops the medium cutting in on itself.
"That is where the innovation lies," he said,
The technology has been applied to any kind of hook or rig you can imagine and certainly puts a different spin on fishing,
If fishing is not quiet your thing then the Rolasolar setup might have caught your eye.
This company was selling solar panels that could be rolled up or rolled out like an awning.
The convenience of this could be understated as it gets rid of the all the bulky heavy solar power panels we are used to and the circumference is huge.
If your into grabs then the Crafty Crab Trap would put a smile on your dial.
The Crafty Crab Trap designer Dennis Adams, of Ipswich, designed the trap because he got tired of shared farmers and feeding the crabs.
"The beauty of this is it works better than a crab pot over a short period of time," he said.
Lastly we spoke to Steven Blanch and his wild water sports store which features clear bottomed craft for the paddler to enjoy the scenic water scapes in our region.
There is now interest from as far afield as Western Australia for these boutique sporting craft.
Steven has also branched out into house boats this year, and has his first house boat available for bookings in Evans Head.
