Jacks LRF Ultralight Lures

Jacks LRF Blok HedWe’ve talked about the recent uprising of specialist lure fishing shops before now, but I wanted to highlight one in particular – ‘Jacks LRF’.

I want to call Jacks LRF a ‘cottage industry’ type of business – I’m hoping neither Andy or Jack take offense at that. You see with Jacks LRF there’s a level of interest in ultralight lures that’s above the norm. The service is fantastic and friendly, and I can get unique, quality lures that I can’t obtain anywhere else. It’s specialist Continue reading “Jacks LRF Ultralight Lures”

Cultiva Ring Kick Tail LuresRecently I exposed my guilty pleasure of ultra light lure fishing, mostly with soft plastics. Now with hours of LRF experience under my belt, a few successful lures are starting to stand out above the dozens I originally purchased (without too much know-how).

So what to say about a reel bag… Well, as I already remarked the quality is about as good as it gets in neoprene reel covers – the neoprene is a luxurious 5mm thick and Continue reading “Daiwa SP-MH Neoprene Reel Cover”

Berkley Gulp Sandworm vs Marukyu Power Isome

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. While LRF is a saltwater discipline, it shares a lot of tackle and technique with ultra light freshwater spinning. Anyhow, this isn’t

Hiro Bream Machine Rod – a Year Long Review

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 sport fishing charter services 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 Continue reading “Hiro Bream Machine Rod – a Year Long Review”
