A Fishing Magazine Subscription – the perfect gift

Posted by Editor On November - 15 - 2009ADD COMMENTS

Certainly a gift I've welcomed on many an occasion myself - here we take a look at the fishing magazine subscriptions available online in time for Christmas.

Generally there are three different types of angling publication. There are weekly publications like the Angling Times that concentrate on all areas of angling, reporting on the latest news and reviews - often as they happen; then there are many magazines that concentrate on a particular type of fishing, for example sea fishing or coarse fishing; and then finally there a few monthly mags that specialise in niche areas of a certain angling type, for example Boat Fishing Monthly is a specialist magazine in the Sea category.

My advice to you would be the following. ... Read the rest of this entry »

Okuma set to launch Rod range in Europe

Posted by Editor On November - 6 - 2009ADD COMMENTS

Today, Tackle Trade World has announced that Okuma is planning to expand its European business with a range of rods. Okuma is a highly recognised reel manufacturer in Europe however, they are not renowned for rod manufacture despite selling volume elsewhere in the world. Importing rods in any numbers to Europe for the first time is sure to raise the brand's profile here in the UK.

TTW believes that we can expect to see a high profile branding campaign from Okuma in the new year and that this move will coincide with that.

Okuma has its manufacturing plant based in China with a considerable resource of 2,000 employees. In addition, they have a research and development plant in Taiwan, so they definitely have the 'grunt' to make this happen. I would initially expect to see rods that translate well across international boundaries (such as spinning rods for example) before we see any region specific rod genres, like carp rods.

We look forward to see what the new year brings.

Kingpin Reels – T&G Show [part 3]

The Kingpin stand was definitely one of the most attractive at the show. The quality of the merchandise (and the anodising) were second to none.

Centre stage was the limited edition Sterling available in Blood Red/Pearl Black (pictured) or Pearl Black/Blood Red, both of which are equally seductive in appearance. These 4 1/2 inch reels were created to commemorate the company's 25th anniversary and boy have they made something to be proud of. The new reel features the machined spoke design found on their Sovereign range of centrepins. We think it looks fantastic! ... Read the rest of this entry »

Those clever people at Fuji, the rod guide manufacturer have done it again. Nearly five years of research, testing and design have lead to the new K-Series guide set, guides specifically created to remove the risk of tangles around rod guides while using braid fishing lines.

Most of us probably don't think too much about the eyes on our rods but with five years development these K-Series guides have some key design elements: ... Read the rest of this entry »
