About Adam Kirby
Hi. My name is Adam Kirby and this is my LRF blog. I've been angling for nearly 30 years now. The first 20 of which were almost entirely focused on sea angling, fishing around my home town of Portsmouth. I still regard myself as a sea angler, but the boundaries have blurred a little. Probably best described as an all-round lure angler these days. Across both freshwater and salt. I've had decent success on the freshwater lure competition scene where I transferred my ultralight, LRF approach to targeting Perch on the inland waterways. If you've not tried this yet, you must give it a go. In 2015 I was crowned 'British Street Fishing Champion'.
I've always enjoyed the variety of fish species available in the sea and I've worked hard to catch over 30 UK saltwater species on lure. My motto is simple. “Fish for what’s in front of you. Big or small, love them all.”
Tiny Codling that I caught while fishing for Herring at Skarnsundet, Norway. He surprised me as he was hunting near the surface with the Herring. Caught on a favourite of mine, the tiny Mushi creature from AquaWave.
Looking back at my blog, LRF doesn't really get going until April. Or so I thought. With 5 days still left of March I can't quite believe what a great day's fishing I've just had around Portsmouth. Last year I had to drive west to find the early fish. Read more
Brute of a Brown Trout took offence at my Hart Absolut Minnow as I bounced it back towards me, with the flow. After a little walk around Newbury town centre together, we exchanged pleasantries and she went on her way again.
