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 »

Lures for Plaice Fishing

Posted by Editor On April - 3 - 2012

Plaice on a LureIf you follow Fishing Tackle UK, you might have noticed that we got a bit carried away with the LRF (Light Rock Fish) style of ultralight lure fishing last year.

Top LRF Tackle a Year On

Posted by Editor On January - 25 - 2012

Salon European des Peches en MerWe're 24 hours away from starting a lengthy journey. Driving down to the south coast, we'll be catching the cross channel ferry from Portsmouth to Caen. Once in France we'll need to drive a further 180 miles to Nantes - all this for a fishing tackle show. But to quote a friend, "if Carlsberg did fishing events, it would probably be close to the Salon European des Peche en Mer in Nantes" from the 27th to the 29th of January.

Two of us have been before - last year. It was a hugely enjoyable event for us (despite not speaking good French) Read the rest of this entry »
