Terry’s Travels An Evening Session for Mullet

By

Published on

19-07-2014

I didn’t think I would get the chance of a few hours Mullet fishing after work, but just on the off chance, threw the pre-assembled rod in the jeep anyway. It’s just that the tides were perfect, and with the window of settled weather we have been experiencing these last few weeks, it seemed a pity not to! That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. As things transpired, I managed to get through the work-load with time to spare. Pedal to the metal, I made a bee-line for my fa...

Terry’s Travels Owner Circle Hooks, product test

Published on

I was asked to try out the new range of circle hooks from Owner, and received a packet each of 7/0, 8/0, 9/0 and 10/0. The two smaller sizes come in packs of five, the 9/0’s come with four hooks, and you get three, single 10/0’s in a pack. On inspection, these hooks are of the highest quality I have come to expect with Owner, extremely strong and surgically sharp. I could regurgitate the blurb that extols the virtues of this product, but as always, I prefer to put produc...

Arguably the most famous name in boat rod circles is the Shakespeare Ugly Stik. To celebrate the recent introduction of the new Ugly Stik GX2 range of boat rods, Shakespeare decided to undertake a UK tour with the rods. The format is to visit as many of our sponsored boats around the country as possible, and using the same rods, catch as many varied species on a wide range of techniques, just to prove the versatility of the GX2’s. Our start point was aboard Sea Otter 2 out o...

I picked up this very handy piece of kit from the luggage range at JRC. It is designed to carry three, fully made up rods and reels. It is extremely light-weight and the extensive padding will keep your rods fully protected in transit. One large side zip gives access to two compartments, with a further zipped centre compartment. I tried it out for size with my JRC Razors and big-pit Cardinals as seen in the photographs, and they easily fitted with room to spare. Th...

Terry’s Travels Carp and the JRC-Penn Combo

  A chance trip to Cork City for a week’s work would have been a missed opportunity if I hadn’t taken my carp gear with me! Obviously, tackle omission was never going to be an issue, and so, my beloved JRC “Classics” and Penn Affinity reels were packed into the Navarra, along with the caravan of accessories required for a few nights bivvy’ing. With the week’s work behind me, made easier in the company of good friends and fellow anglers, Bill Brazier and Ada...

DÉJÀ VU WHITING

They say history often repeats itself, and sea fishing seems to be no different. I was down in Plymouth with Shakespeare Category Manager James Robbins filming some product and sales videos, but also looking to field test some new Shakespeare rods we’ve been working on. We filmed all day Wednesday, so apart from a very short LRF session resulting in small pollack and shannies late that evening, fishing was not in the plan. The Thursday was different though, as we needed so...

Terry’s Travels Roachy-Ruddy Things

Once upon a time in Ireland, we had Rudd, an indigenous species that managed to survive the rigors of the last ice-age. Roach were artificially introduced last century and exploded through-out our lakes, loughs and river systems. Now it seems, these two species have merged and hybridised, to the point where it is extremely difficult to find Roach or Rudd in their purest form in this country. This is, I am sure, a serious problem for the future of our Rudd stocks. The othe...

Shakespeare Agility Spinning Rod (product test) I recently had the opportunity to product test the Agility 9ft spinning rod from Shakespeare. This is just one of the comprehensive Agility range spanning coarse, sea and game. I chose the 9ft, 12-30 gm version to try out, knowing that an angling trip in search of Twaite Shad was looming fast on the horizon. The entire Agility Spin collections are four-piece, and when broken down, are extremely handy to carry in the rucks...

Drop Shotting Tips by Paul Garner

Drop shotting is amazingly popular at the moment and for good reason - it is perhaps the best and easiest way to catch Perch from a few ounces right up to whoppers! 1. Use light braid, such as 6lb Berkley Fireline Smoke or Berkley Nanofil, instead of nylon as the lack of stretch in braid is important for working lures correctly. 2. In cold weather work your lure REALLY slowly - tiny movements are all you need to tempt a Perch. As it warms up you can fish lures faster ...
