2012 Abel Fishing Reels & Accessories

Posted by Editor On October - 11 - 2011

Abel fishing reels and their growing range of accessories are among the most lustful items of fishing tackle available. Whether you're a fly fisher or not, there's no denying the quality and beauty that oozes out of every item they make.

Take 2012, for example. Abel have released two new reels, one for Spey, one Switch, both in a new (for them), old-school, classical design. There's a new reel finish by Montana artist Derek DeYoung, plus two of the most adorable fishing accessories I think I have ever seen - the Abelight flashlight/torch and the Abel Nippers, both available in a multitude of jaw-dropping finishes.

2012 Shimano Baitrunner LC XTA – Big & Medium

Posted by Editor On September - 30 - 2011

Shimano Baitrunner XTA LC AdvertShimano's advert for the new Baitrunner LC says, 'Legend Reborn' and while normally we'd take this kind of advertising with a pinch of salt, in this case I tend to agree that the big Baitrunner Long Cast is a legendary fishing reel.  The 'Big Baitrunner' has been landing big fish for over 15 years. In Shimano's reel portfolio it sits alongside other iconic greats such as the TLD lever drag reels.

2012 is a special year as Shimano have chosen to bring this old timer right up to date. Perhaps even more importantly the redesign brings with it a new size - Medium - that I'm sure will be very well received all around the world - in most countries angling equipment is getting smaller and lighter as tackle gets stronger and better designed, while anglers become more sporting in the quest to have some fun Read the rest of this entry »

Sakura Rock Pocket Review – LRF Lure Wallet

Posted by Editor On September - 24 - 2011

Sakura Rock PocketFor me, part of the enjoyment I've taken from discovering ultralight lure fishing, whether that be saltwater LRF or fishing for freshwater Perch, is from the increased mobility and comfort levels experienced. When I started fishing this style just under a year ago now, I didn't really know which lures and jigs I was going to use from one session to the next. But as my experience has grown, I have acquired a few favourites from the mountains of gear I used to carry and I've identified exactly what to use at certain, Read the rest of this entry »

2012 Shimano Fishing Tackle Video

Posted by Editor On September - 1 - 2011

Well, it's that time of year again (at last). The big tackle trade shows of EFTTEX and ICAST are behind us and fishing tackle manufacturers' attention turns to consumer PR, building the buzz for next seasons tackle releases.

As ever, there's an awful lot of new releases this year. The big manufacturers will use their marketing might to make their products stand out against the rest. It's normally quite a show.

Australia seems to be ahead in this process every year. Check out this promotional video from Shimano Australia for 2012: Read the rest of this entry »
