Posted by Editor On January - 30 - 2010

Move over eBay, the nation's anglers have a new favourite when it comes to fishing tackle classifieds! Well, I don't think the online auction giant has too much to worry about just yet but I couldn't help but notice how the online fishing tackle classifieds website - Tackle Trader - was shooting up the rankings in terms of search engine queries. According to Hitwise, over the last three weeks more people have searched for the phrase 'tackle trader' than the term 'fishing tackle' - usually the most searched for by far.

Posted by Editor On January - 29 - 2010

It's not all that often that a new brand of fishing tackle comes along and you can guarantee its success, but we're pretty sure that's exactly what we can expect from new carp tackle brand, Avid Carp.

And the reason for our optimism? Dave Preston, the man behind Korum, Sonubaits and Preston Innovations - clearly a tackle genius and a highly successful businessman. A carp angler himself, he has been the driving force behind some of the most innovative tackle developments in the industry.

Daiwa Catalogue 2010 – Daiwa Reels [part 1]

Posted by Editor On January - 8 - 2010

A copy of Daiwa's UK 2010 fishing tackle catalogue arrived this morning, much to my delight. For the benefit of those who haven't received one yet I thought I'd walk you through it - starting with 2010 reels.

Reels

In terms of reel technology there doesn't appear to be an awful lot of new development for 2010. That's not to say that Daiwa have rested on their laurels this year, but it just appears that they have concentrated on applying their superb, existing technologies further down the range. In summary, there aren't any new developments at the top of the tree, but with the likes of Zaion, Real Four, DIGIGEAR and the QD drag already in the lineup, we're already spoilt. A good example of existing technology filtering down through the range this year is the addition of the excellent High Impact Line Clip (HIP Clip) to smaller fixed spools and away from the exclusivity of the bigger carp reels. For those that don't know, this ingenious line clip on the spool features a braid and mono friendly collar behind the clip so it can be used safely as a distance control without the fear of damaging line. It finds its way from the top-flight BASIAIR onto the replacement for the ever popular TD-R Match & Feeder reels - the new TD-X range. This new addition should go down a storm.

Posted by Editor On January - 6 - 2010

A new Chinese tackle manufacturer has been formed and is set to cause a storm in Europe over the next few years. The name - Holly Kudos.

The OEM company has been formed by an alliance of two existing tackle manufacturers; Danyang Holly Fishing, who have been producing carp and match fishing tackle exclusively for European buyers and Dalian Kudos, a manufacturer focused on terminal tackle.
