Back to back BLAC. Sunday saw round 6 of the qualifiers fished on a huge stretch of the Grand Union Canal, close to the M25. More
Exhausted. But what a cracking, fishing filled weekend that was.
Saturday saw nearly 50 anglers descend upon my local stretch of the Kennet & Avon Canal at Hungerford for the 5th British Lure Angling Championships qualifier this year. More
My understanding of rod design and rod performance has accelerated since I started fishing for Perch in my local canal. Unlike the sea, conditions are more often than not suitable for throwing the tiniest lures. We're often talking 1-inch plastics and jigheads under a gram. To me, it's this style of fishing that has amplified the importance of using a balanced outfit. I thought I'd share where my head is at currently. Subject to change. More
Promised myself I would share my favourite gear of the year as we approach the end of 2014. And what a year it's been! UK lure fishing has gone from strength to strength. LRF seemed to explode.

We're approaching the end of 2014 and it's a good time to review what's worked and what hasn't worked this year. If I think back to my competition angling, one rod stands head and shoulders above the rest as my best performing lure rod - the Major Craft Turel TUS-T762. More
I was bored at work yesterday afternoon and decided to see if I could answer the question, "which is the most popular UK predator?" There's no denying that interest in predator fishing, especially lure fishing is exploding in the UK right now, but which predators really interest anglers the most? More
And that was that.
Definitely a void in my chest this week. A hole left by the completion of the inaugural British Lure Angling Championships, on Saturday at Chew.
What an amazing thing to be a part of. More
