With a widening gap between myself and the others fishing the Lure Heaven UK Species Hunt and the summer life draining out of the sea on a daily basis now, I headed west to Plymouth at the weekend to see how many 'summer' species I could tick off before they left our shoresRead more
Lots of these Rock Goby dudes at The Barbican, Plymouth.
I am thinking of getting some clothing branded 'Light.Rock.Fishing-LRF', more than once I have been approached by fellow anglers within my club and been asked ‘what is that fishing you do, with the silly light rods, fixed spools and rubber eels?’ and I have to go through what it is all about and where to find some info online. I’m happy to as I love LRF and keen to spread the gospel. The reason I have to go through this fairly often is I am having to tell each individual angler in my club one by one as they don’t seem to want anyone else to know that they are actually quite interested in targeting Scorpion fish, or Bream, or Gobies on ultra-light tackle. It's just not ‘grown-up’. So to save them the embarrassment of having to ask me about about light rock fishing, if I had a t-shirt that read ‘Light.Rock.Fishing…Google it’ I would ensure that people still got the info without letting their mates know that the thought of a Tompot Blenny on a plastic using .3PE line excites them every bit as much as 50lb conger on bait with 2lb of lead. I hope to see some secret LRF’ers out on the sea soon and can be sure that when they catch their first Bream, Wrasse or similar on LRF gear they won’t keep it to themselves for long!
Plenty of LRF for me this week, with the small tides and breeze-less evenings it worked out nicely to fish over low water in Langstone harbour entrance and try some all round fishing without targeting anything specific. Read more
