bass

Arguably the Bass is the nations favourite fish to target with lures. With this cagey adversary, LRF tackle and techniques can offer an advantage in terms of stealth and subtlety. Find a shoal of even smallish Bass and expect a huge amount of fun catching them on lightly fished soft-plastics and metals. Make sure you’ve set your drag correctly!

Bass on Tiny Hardbaits

Bass on UL Hardbait
With an almost unlimited stream of shoal bass around at the moment it pays to experiment. For me, the most satisfying technique is casting tiny hardbaits, getting slammed in plain sight! Spectacular fun on a 7g LRF rod.

Our Alderney Lure Festival 2016

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.

LRF Really Getting Going

Corkwing on HTO Knight Worm

Really feels like LRF is firing now. The water feels alive. Loads of mini sandeel and fry about. With it a huge amount of aggressive species. Good array of fish hitting non-flavoured lures. Nice to see the shoal bass have returned. Could this be why I didn’t catch a single goby all weekend? Or maybe just out-competed by the wrasse.
