If I was a kayak angler, I'm pretty sure I'd pick Sea Angler up the moment I saw it this month, as the cover boasts a competition prize well worth winning – a Tarpon kayak that would set you back £900!
As it is, the cover also has a photo of a nice shore-caught cod on, so I picked it up and read it immediately, anyway. That's my kind of fish!

Your hook is an essential bit of angling hardware, but are you stuck in a rut and using just one pattern, or even one size, for all fish and all baits? If so, that could be a big mistake.
