I had a few days in Northumberland over the Bank Holiday and went fishing in Amble harbour; due to the prevailing winds I didn't manage anything on lures and only had limited success with Isome worms. However, using live rag sections on a dropshot rig, I caught a load of what are locally called Puddlers (immature Coalfish) and nothing else. Hopefully next time i go up conditions will allow me to use a more lure based approach.
I also met the MD of Sonik who had two of their new Rockchamp LRF rods with him and two prototype reels; very nice bits of kit; anyone want to buy a set of Tronix Rockfish rods?

After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.

Any good for conger.  B)


 Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.

 
New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.
 
Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.
 
Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.
 
new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.
 
Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because  they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Those little coaleys are good fun on light tackle, though. Fishing in Scotland, I found them pretty amenable to taking lures. Probably catchable on the fly too!

Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.

 

 

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

Actually they do catch the odd Conger and they anchor up for them as well, some big Ling to. But they never catch them LRFing.

The problem I had was that the onshore wind had coloured up the water and the fish just wouldn't chase a lure.
