Fishing on Holiday? LRF, the Perfect Travel Companion

LRF Lizard FishFishing on holiday just got a whole lot easier for me.

Just to clarify, we’re not talking about ‘Fishing Holidays’ here, with intense angling itineraries and perhaps lavish tackle purchases for taking-on the highly¬†targeted¬†game fish of your choice – we’re talking average family holidays abroad.

I’m sure we share the same dilemmas every holiday. You’re an avid fisherman. You love fishing. You love fish. And consequently you always try to book a holiday near the coast in the hope you’ll find time to flex the Continue reading “Fishing on Holiday? LRF, the Perfect Travel Companion”

In short, he’s a pretty interesting guy and no doubt a Continue reading “Marukyu, Ecogear, Nories and the Future for the UK”

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.
