In my last post I mentioned I was playing with JungleGym’s ‘Be Free Texas’ rig. So far so good. It’s a glorified weedless Texas rig but using JungleGym’s Bean Sinker and their ringed offset hook (Ring Rocker). With the addition of stop a few inches above the weight (Move Stopper) you have a kind of bolt rig. Read more
Quiet on the Kennet and Avon Canal today. Managed these two Perch and stirred a couple of Pike. Fished Reins Bubbling Shads on a texas rig. Chartreuse was the best performing colour.
More fun with the 3″ Reins Bubbling Shad. Fished Texas. Colour is Marble Chart Orange.
Braved the extreme cold today for 30 minutes while visiting Newbury. Wasn’t hopeful but I was gagging to try out some of my new lures. I fished a 3″ Reins Bubbling Shad in Marble Chart Orange, Texas with a 3.5g brass cone weight. Only managed a dozen casts before my hands froze but got a couple of follows from a decent trout and landed this little Pike. Great fun on the LRF gear. I will be back!
