Berkley Gulp Sandworm vs Marukyu Power Isome

Posted by Editor On May - 25 - 2011ADD COMMENTS

Gulp Sandworm vs Power IsomeI admit, I've been consumed by a new area of our sport. It's taken all my strength not to let it and all the related new tackle swamp Fishing-Tackle.co.uk, but I can't contain it any longer.

'LRF' or Light Rock Fish originates from Japan where the local anglers use Ultra-Lightweight outfits to target smaller species of fish like Aji (Scad) and Merabu, in a highly pressured fishery.

Kimera Pro Bait Pump Review

Posted by Guest On May - 20 - 20114 COMMENTS

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. Every pump is hand crafted and built to your exact length making it one of the best pump systems available.

New Daiwa Saltiga 4000As far as light tackle fishing news goes, this is right up there... Daiwa have released the new Saltiga spinning reels in smaller sizes, including a baby 3500. Happy days!

When Daiwa released the new Saltiga range of spinning reels back in the tail end of 2010, questions were rightly asked over what this meant for the excellent Daiwa Saltiga Game range. 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 »

Hiro Bream Machine Rod – a Year Long Review

Posted by Dan Sissons On April - 15 - 2011ADD COMMENTS

Hiro Bream MachineThe East Solent from the Isle of Wight across to Selsey really comes alive in the spring. From mid-April onwards a wide variety of fish come into reaching distance for boat anglers. There is a genuine chance of a record weight Smoothhound or Tope (catch and release please) and local charter boats take out stacks of anglers looking for drag-busting fun but you may just be missing out on one of our best kept secrets.

The humble Black Bream arrive right across the south coast from ... Read the rest of this entry »

Rite Gear Rod Bag – Matchman Rod Holdall

Posted by Editor On April - 11 - 2011ADD COMMENTS

Rite GearHere at Fishing-Tackle.co.uk we love to support smaller fishing tackle manufacturers. Not because they need our support, but because generally a small tackle manufacturer is less about marketing and more about well thought out products. This is certainly the case with Dene Conway's Rite Gear brand and their first product, the Rite Gear Matchman Rod Holdall.

It shows that 4 years of prototypes and testing went into what ... Read the rest of this entry »
