If 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 Continue reading “Lures for Plaice Fishing”
We didn’t get a clear answer when we spoke to the Pure Fishing representative at the Tackle & Guns Trade Show yesterday, but it would appear that the amazing new Berkley Nanofil will be in the shops before 2011 is out – or ever so slightly more accurate, in ‘one or two months’.

Berkley NanoFil did NOT win either Best New Monofilament or Best New Braid at EFTTEX 2011. Berkley did win ‘Innovation of the Year’ with NanoFil though. How so?

I attended The Big One fishing tackle show in Farnborough, on Saturday 20th February and hats off to Fishface Promotions – it was a cracker!
I haven’t seen any official visitor numbers but at times during the morning it was absolutely ram packed – hundreds and hundreds of anglers all looking for a bargain or two and taking advantage of the excellent displays and seminars by the tackle manufacturers and angling celebrities that attended.
Parking was easy and as promised there was a nice touch in that for anglers that overindulged themselves on the discount tackle (especially heavy ground-bait, pellet and boilies) there were a number of Continue reading “The Big One Tackle Show 2010 – a great success”
