Chris Ballan Alderney

The 3rd and 4th of September saw both local and visiting lure anglers congregate upon the beautiful island of Alderney for the annual Alderney Lure Festival. Hosted by Alderney Angling and its 4th year, it was great to hear the event was going from strength to strength, with a record turnout. Read more

My First Welsh Bass

Estuary caught Bass

A trip to visit relatives in Carmarthenshire this weekend gifted me the opportunity to fish a picturesque estuary on the flooding tide. The end result was a nice Bass on the 15g Caro rod. My first Welsh bass! Fought really well in the shallows and has left me wanting to do more of this style of angling.

Horse Mackerel at Weymouth

Horse Mackerel in Weymouth
Horse Mackerel on Knight Worm
Great little session with Chris Wheeler in Weymouth on Saturday night. Wind dropped away to nothing for a couple of hours around midnight and we were able to fish delicate Aji-type lures on jigheads, using the curve fall method, on-the-drop (OTD). We picked up the desired Horse Mackerel (Scad), Mackerel and some decent sized Pollack, plus the odd tiny Whiting caught well off the bottom. Really enjoyed it.

The weather gods were not best pleased with the group of anglers that ventured out to fish the 2014 Alderney 24 Hour Lure Only Species Hunt. Strong easterly winds hampered everyone’s progress the whole weekend but did nothing to dampen everyone’s enthusiasm. Alderney has a lot to offer, even in tough conditions. Read more

Old Brown Trout on Alderney

I definitely wasn’t expecting this from the sea angling nirvana of Alderney. As such, probably my favourite fish of our trip. Read more
