    LRF fish-in

    Only a month to go, I will also bring along a couple of score of ragworm so at least we will get some bites. let me kniow if you need to borrow an lrf set up and I will see what I can do.

    LRF fish-in

    Pete I normally use a standard dropshot type rig baited with a size 6-10 Sabpolo hook baited with a section of Isome worm, I rarely use the whole worm. I haven't had much success at the Hoe with lrf lures, but that is probably because l haven't tried hard enough. Berkley Gulp sandworms also work, as does the Gulp Bloodworm.

    Vagabond the most unusual species we have had fishing at the Hoe was a Topknot and we have had a few Dragonets from the beach on the Folkestone side. Tony

    Yes of course it was a Black Goby, locally wrongly called a Blenny, I have never even seen the Butterfly or Montagu's Blenny which I understand are very attractive little fish.

    n4lly I will have a couple of spare LRF rods with me so this will not be a problem. Black
  6. Darn it! We are in Cuba until 14th October and I have no free weekends after that until November. I would have liked to have a go at this.
  7. Dave H and Rusty I am on the KAPS committee and I must point out that at the moment we have a two year waiting list to join the Society. That said our river venues are seriously underfished and even in the summer you can have an entire stretch to yourself. Tony

    LRF fish-in

    I was down at the Hoe on Saturday and did well on Isome worm catching Pouting, small Ballan Wrasse and three species of Blenny. A pity the Pollack didn't show up.
  9. There is a great all you can eat in Folkestone which does a fantastic Madras curry, if anyone fancies a post fish in scoff; it costs £9.50 on a Sunday look here for details: http://www.orientalbuffet.co.uk/
  10. Dave Surprisingly when I am LRFing there using very light leads (5-20g), I lose very few leads. I normally set up drop shot fashion with a US grip type swivel holding a short length of line to the lead and as I am using braid i just feel the line down to the bottom and bounce the lead off the snags. I rarely cast out just a straight drop down will put you on the fish up against the structure around the sea wall.

    LRF fish-in

    I propose to hold an AN LRF fish in at Samphire Hoe on Sunday 13th September; Samphire Hoe is off the Dover to Folkestone carriageway of the A20. You access Samphire Hoe through a traffic light controlled tunnel in the cliff. Samphire Hoe postcode: CT17 9FL and Samphire Hoe is signposted. There is ample parking available at a reasonable £2.00 per day and an angling day ticket is £6.00 for the day High tide is at 12:10 so meeting around 8:00 The park opens at 07:00, but you need to get there. Expected species will be Wrasse (Ballans, Goldsinny and Corkwing), Pollack< Pouting, Blennies

  14. Chesters The line on the web page states: "avoids the incessant barrage of tackle and tactics". as for the people we like this is just a pen profile of the contributing writers, nothing sinsiter in that. Tony
  15. Vagabond In my case, I am a purchaser of antiques, but not the owner.
  16. Well, Sue winning the antique lures at the Wingham fish-in auction; has started something. Yesterday at a flea market in Faversham she first finds a nice old brass and wood centre pin and picks it up for a fiver, and then picks up a whole and built cane JW Martin and Sons rod for twenty quid. After all she is now an antiques tackle collector and I have been reduced to an antique tackle payer!
  17. Steve I am up for an LRF session at Samphire Hoe, early September would suit me around the weekend of 12th 13th. Tony
  18. Very sad news indeed I have had a number of conoflex rods over the years, DC6, Flick tip and I still own a Scorpion Sport. I must admit I now use Century, when I need to use a conventional beachcaster.

    LRFing

    I had my first session of the year, at Samphire Hoe yesterday, Nothing much on the plastics so I resorted to using drop shotted ragworm. This resulted in a mix of Pouting, juvenile Pollack and three species of Wrasse, Corkwing Ballan and Goldsinny. Nothing big but on 5-20g rods they put up a good scrap. Tony
  20. Fishing in Cuba with my best mate Richard a few years back. I cant remember what we caught it didn't matter; but what a joy to think two lads who grew up fishing a pit slack in Newcastle would end up there.

    Andrew To me they are all blues rock rather than pure blues exponents, for that look at the likes of Keb Mo, Ben Andrews, Little Toby Walker and Gary Clark Jr.
  22. Jan to June Trout fishing, the weekend at Wingham doesn't count lets say Tench July to August LRFing and a weekend coarse fishing somwehere, for Carp tbd September to December back to Trout and a weekend Piking on the Rother.
