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 »

Ryobi Returns with Awesome Metaroyal Safari Reel

Posted by Editor On October - 6 - 2010

Ryobi Metaroyal 5000 Fishing Safari ReelRyobi, the well-regarded tackle giant that sadly disappeared from UK shores in 1998 is set to return once more with the Masterline Walker group (who also house Cortland, Yo-Zuri and Rovex to name a few).

The reason Ryobi retreated was to concentrate on manufacturing high quality fishing tackle for the Japanese market. The good news for us in the UK is that Ryobi will be bringing some of that tackle back with them. We're fans of at least one of their reels - the awesome Ryobi Metaroyal Safari, or to give it its very Asian, full title - the Ryobi Metaroyal 5000 Fishing Safari - so we contacted Masterline who have confirmed that these reels will indeed be available here in the UK.

We've been lucky enough to handle these reels in Australia, Asia and parts of Europe and they are tough. Do a quick trawl of online fishing forums and you'll find some very good remarks about the Metaroyal Safari. This is a heavy-duty spinning reel more traditional suited to tropical styles like deepwater jigging and popping but we're sure it will find its place over here. It features a suitable power gear Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Editor On September - 15 - 2010

Mustad Viking 79515 HookWe might not all find hook patterns exciting but we all depend on our hook choice to hook and land that fish of a lifetime. For me, successful fishing is all about confidence. The Mustad Viking 79515 hook is one of those hooks that gives me confidence. If I need a 3/0 or 4/0 for my boat fishing then I turn to the Read the rest of this entry »
