With the Cornish Lure Festival cancelled for 2017, Dan, Chris and myself decided to fish it anyway! And so we began our lure-only species hunt around Cornwall for a few days. More

While I won't remember the 2016 Cornish Lure Festival as one of my finest angling achievements, the event once again demonstrated why it is a must-do competition on the lure fishing calendar. More

WARNING: There is quite a lot of swearing!
Here it is then. A lasting memory from the 2015 Cornish Lure Festival. One genuine lure-caught, LRF Conger Eel. Hooked on a 2-inch lure, using 4lb leader and a rod rated to just 5 gram.
Just shows you. NEVER give in.
Mahoosive thanks to Ben Tregoning for filming the last moments of this epic tussle.
