Product Review: Lightweight Fishing Seat Box is Well Worth The Money for the Roaming Angler

Now I feel quite qualified to review this particular item as I own and use one myself! It’s a lightweight fishing seat box with two slide in tackle boxes, side and front pockets, adjustable legs/feet and a strong shoulder strap which can be converted for backpack-style use. My take on it is that it’s actually […]

Stunning Casting Skills in Thailand

This is absolutely ridiculous. The casting skills these Thai anglers possess are out of this world. The fish they’re catching are (mainly) snakeheads, great sport, great eating (unfortunately for the snakehead, that is). There’s also the  Hampala Barb in a couple of scenes. Two videos, one great talent! A GoPro or similar camera is used […]

Mega Zoom Rabbits

LLOYDS MEADOW FISHERY again, wandering around the beautiful Cheshire countryside watching bunnies from a long way away. It’s less than 2 minutes running time. Near the end you’ll see just how capable the long lens of the Panasonic DMC-FZ72EB is, even when hand-held.

Nice! Drop the float in, relax, enjoy. This Is Why We Fish.

Coarse Angler David at Badger Lake, Lloyds Meadow Fishery, practicing for his match in a few days. He had over 60lbs of carp and silvers. A word about the camera I used. It’s a Panasonic FZ270 camera with a ridiculous zoom on it. You can see that from how close we get to the float […]

This Is Ridiculous. U.K. Population Growth Getting Out Of Control

Alarming stuff.  The population of the United Kingdom is going to increase by 10 million in the next 25 years. Soon we’ll be the most populous country in Europe even though our land mass is much smaller than many EU countries.  OK, so what has this got to do with fishing?  There will clearly be […]

Leger Fishing and the Fact that I WAS Useless at Spelling It

Chortle, Guffaw and Smirk, I’m so bad at Leger Fishing that I never even spelt it right in a previous post. My New Years Resolution for 2015 (10 months late) is to improve my leger fishing by 99% which shouldn’t be all that hard given how totally crap I am at it right now. [easyazon_infoblock […]
