Posted by Guest On May - 20 - 2011

Kimera Pro Bait PumpGone are the days of back breaking bait digging. If you're lucky enough to live in an area of decent substrate then now is the time to jump on the bait digging bandwagon, especially during the recession when 10 lugworm in a tackle shop can cost you as much as £4.00.
The new Kimera Pro bait pump has just been launched after the success of the Kimera Std which has been around for almost 18 months. The Kimera Pro is a 22mm bore lug pump that is designed, created and tested by professional bait diggers and is 100% stainless steel with a removable bush and neoprene washer.

Well our questions (and prayers) have been answered in the form of the new 3500 & 4000 sized reels launched recently in Japan. Unlike the Saltiga Game range, the new reels have kept the aesthetic appearance of their big brothers. They don't appear to be disadvantaged in any way either - just pint sized versions of the bigger reels. New features such as the lightweight Zaion Read the rest of this entry »
