Avid Carp HQ Bivvy Review

Posted by Editor On October - 26 - 2010

Avid Carp HQ BivvyThe two hour journey to Stoneleigh Park for this year's Tackle & Guns Show gave me plenty of time to think about what tackle and which manufacturers I wanted to see. A manufacturer that was front of mind was new carp brand, Avip Carp - a company that we've been following since they launched at the start of the year (Avid Carp Tackle). I couldn't wait to see all the new products up close.

Once in the show I wasn't disappointed. The Avid Carp display was part of a huge Preston Innovations trade stand, also featuring Korum alongside their established match gear. More on those brands to come. Center stage was the new Avid Carp HQ Bivvy and impressive it did look too. While I was drooling over the more obvious design features I was lucky enough to be approached by none other than carp supremo, Ian Russell.

Match the Hatch with Savage Gear’s Cutbait Puffin!

Savage Gear Cutbait Herring Puffin LureAs I'm writing this I'm checking the date on my watch... It's far enough away from April 1st for me to continue.

Yes, you read the title correctly. Savage Gear have added a Puffin colour scheme to their range of giant Cutbait Herring soft lures. The over-sized lure immediately attracted my attention when I visited the excellent Svendsen Sport stand at the recent Tackle & Guns Show at Stoneleigh Park. I have to say I initially thought it was a gimmick and a topic of conversation Read the rest of this entry »

White Fishing ReelsA couple of years back, myself and a good friend of mine (Dan Sissons) were enthusing over some custom fishing reels when it was suggested how awesome it would be to have a bright white fishing reel. It's fair to say that the thought was most probably triggered as a result of Apple's iPod domination of cool and the resulting trend in shiny, white sports cars, but the point was well made - we didn't have an ultra cool, white fishing reel.

The Rise of UK Sea Fishing Tackle

Posted by Editor On October - 20 - 2010

Sea Fishing48-hours after the Tackle & Guns Show and I'm left with the opinion that perhaps saltwater anglers have done best in terms of new tackle developments this year (maybe carp anglers last year). The sheer volume of new sea fishing gear, from budget to ultra high-end was noticeable and I've been trying to understand, why 2010/2011? First thoughts were towards a trend caused by the economy - but what? I guess sea angling stands out amongst other disciplines because it is perhaps the most accessible area of the sport where you can actually catch food for the table - that certainly seems plausible given the trend in home grown fruit and veg. Maybe all those celebrity chefs Read the rest of this entry »
