A great LRF capture. Probably my biggest LRF Bass to date. This 61cm (fork) fish weighing approximately 6lb fell to a tiny 12g HTO Shore Jig in Scad colour.More
Arguably the Bass is the nations favourite sea 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!
Glad to report that the inshore fishing has picked up on the South Coast with the usual suspects now falling to a range of light lure techniques. More
Wow, what an awesome time we had on holiday in Lefkas, Greece. I fished mainly around the resort of Nydri on the east coast, fishing in the mornings and evenings when I had an hour or so each time. The fishing was excellent, managing 20 different species, all on soft-plastic or metal lures.More

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. More

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.
