I’ve ditched my old measuring tape and moved over to using the awesome HTO LRF Measure. It’s basically a handy, telescopic fish measure that expands from 15cm to 50cm. 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
