Hats off to Andy Mytton for a first class LRF competition and meet-up, drawing in anglers from all over the country. Huge turn-out for any time of year (I think it was 34), but for December, with 40mph winds roaring away it was exceptional. Lots and lots of friendly faces, plus a few new to the saltwater side of light lure. Everyone appeared to be having fun. More
Reeling in to discover that you’ve caught a characterful Tompot Blenny is always a pleasurable experience. With it’s often colourful camouflage and a set of charming ‘eyebrows’, the Tompot Blenny has to be one of the most charismatic creatures you will encounter. An out-and-out ‘rockfish’ and a specific target for LRF.
Weymouth, you excelled yourself! What an amazing venue for a species hunt. Competitors managed 17 species in 8 hours of fishing. Without bait. That's ridiculous! More

During a recent visit to catch up with the good people at Art of Fishing in Plymouth we had to have a little dabble in the excellent LRF that Plymouth and the surrounding area has to offer. Not though before we had spent plenty of time and maybe a few pennies in the new lure only shop the Ben and Jo along with Matt have created. Now I have not been given cake in a tackle shop before but then I have not attended an opening day of a tackle shop before so it may be the etiquette, either way the cake/fishing tackle combo is one that works for me!
