Lures for Plaice Fishing

Posted by Editor On April - 3 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

Plaice on a LureIf you follow Fishing Tackle UK, you might have noticed that we got a bit carried away with the LRF (Light Rock Fish) style of ultralight lure fishing last year. It consumed our angling activities and became a constant distraction from other exciting types of fishing. While my passion for LRF continues to grow, at the beginning of 2012 we made an active, healthy, decision to make HRF (Hard Rock Fish) an intended focus this year.

Yesterday, our ... Read the rest of this entry »

Art of Fishing Plymouth – LRF Nirvana

Posted by Editor On March - 27 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

Art of Fishing FlyerThis past weekend saw us travel over 150 miles to visit a tackle shop in Plymouth. Why? Because this was the grand opening of a special kind of store. One that gives us a rare glimpse of what tackle shops should be like. One for the modern angler.

Exclusive spinning reels from Japan. Lure rods from France. Soft plastics from ... Read the rest of this entry »

Despite not being the absolute latest carnation, fear not, this is a top grade spinning reel and one of the Daiwa reels that is made in Japan. I fish with two original Infinity Q reels alongside a Certate and they compete admirably.

There are two visible differences that I can make out. The rotor ... Read the rest of this entry »

Matt Hayes Adventure Fishing Tackle

Posted by Editor On March - 13 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

Matt Hayes AdventureIt's probably common knowledge by now. Angling celebrity, Matt Hayes has parted company with TF Gear and signed a 5-year consultancy with Swedish tackle supplier, Fladen. The result is a fishing tackle range named Matt Hayes Adventure.

While at first this may not appear to be a major revelation, it has the potential to do the sport a great deal of good.  It's clear that Fladen wants to make inroads into the high street - especially large retailers and ... Read the rest of this entry »
