Fishing on Holiday? LRF, the Perfect Travel Companion

Posted by Editor On May - 30 - 2012

LRF Lizard FishFishing on holiday just got a whole lot easier for me.

Just to clarify, we're not talking about 'Fishing Holidays' here, with intense angling itineraries and perhaps lavish tackle purchases for taking-on the highly targeted game fish of your choice - we're talking average family holidays abroad.

I'm sure we share the same dilemmas every holiday. You're an avid fisherman. You love fishing. You love fish. And consequently you always try to book a holiday near the coast in the hope you'll find time to flex the Read the rest of this entry »

Decoy Pluggin Single Hooks

Posted by Editor On April - 13 - 2012

Decoy Pluggin SinglesIt's that time of year again. You can feel the first warmth in the sunshine, there's buds on the trees and the birds are singing. As a lure angler you're starting to think 'Bass'.

If like me, you haven't already set yourself up for the coming season, now's the time to make sure all your favourite lures are ready to go, the moment the fish are in. For hard bodied lures (plugs) that usually means checking all the hardware for signs of corrosion, bluntness or weakness. While I normally replace any iffy trebles with the excellent Daiichi Bleeding Bait treble hooks, at the end of last summer I started to play around with single hooks on some of my lures. After reading conflicting views on various fishing forums Read the rest of this entry »

Art of Fishing Plymouth – LRF Nirvana

Posted by Editor On March - 27 - 2012

Art of Fishing FlyerThis past weekend saw us travel over 150 miles to visit a tackle shop in Plymouth. Why? Because this was the grand opening of a special kind of store. One that gives us a rare glimpse of what tackle shops should be like. One for the modern angler.

Granted, the new Art of Fishing shop in Plymouth is specialist. It only sells tackle to lure fishermen and women. But Ben Field, the owner, has made a tremendous effort in sourcing a fantastic range of lure fishing equipment from around the globe and making it accessible to UK anglers. Exclusive spinning reels from Japan. Lure rods from France. Soft plastics from Read the rest of this entry »

New Daiwa Infinity Q Custom

Posted by Editor On March - 15 - 2012

Daiwa Infinity Q 3000 CustomWe're most definitely fans of Daiwa's Infinity Q models - a European variation of the original Certate - but it came as quite a shock to discover that the model had resurfaced again in 2012.

From the picture acquired from a German website, it is clear that the new Daiwa Infinity Q Custom is built upon the pre-2010 Certate chassis. As such it doesn't feature Mag Seal, but it does feature a load of Daiwa's greatest innovations, including; Real Four, Digigear II, Hardbody-Z, ABS spool, Airbail and Twistbuster II. Despite not being the absolute latest carnation, fear not, this is a top grade spinning reel and one of the Daiwa reels that is made in Japan. I fish with two original Infinity Q reels alongside a Certate and they compete admirably.

There are two visible differences that I can make out. The rotor Read the rest of this entry »
