New Bait-Tech Super Sprays

Bait-Tech brought out their Super Sprays last year and the first flavours in the range were Fruity, Sweet, Savoury and Spicy. A brilliant little product with loads of uses, now they may be small in stature but they’re big on attraction and certainly pack a punch. Spray directly on method feeders, hookbaits or pellets Flavour water to mix groundbait or soak expanders

How We Fish – Book Review

I was contacted recently by HarperCollins, the book publishers, to ask if I’d like to review How We Fish: The Love, Life and Joy of the Riverbank by Paul Whitehouse and John Bailey. Now I’m a big fan of Mortimer & Whitehouse Gone Fishing on BBC2 so of course I said yes. Now obviously the book is titled ‘How We Fish’ and

New Hybrid Elastic Review

Back in 2020, I won some Hybrid Elastic after entering a competition on Facebook, I did a review at the time (which can be found here) and then updated that post nearly a year later with the elastic still going strong. Well it’s now a further eight months on from that update and it hasn’t needed changing (maybe I just don’t catch

Leon Boots Co. Review

I was recently contacted by a very nice chap from Leon Boots Co after he was given the blog details from a mate of his, to ask if I wanted to review a pair of their Ultralight wellies. Of course I said yes and to be honest the offer came at quite an opportune time, I own a pair of Skee-Tex moon

New Bait-Tech products for 2021

Obviously 2020 will be remembered for all the wrong reasons and one of the consequences of the pandemic was that pretty much everything was cancelled, things like The Big One fishing show didn’t happen and many tackle firms held off on releasing their new products. When Bait-Tech finally announced what they had planned for this year, it was doubly exciting so here’s

Somerset Rig Company Review

I’ve known the lovely Steve Chant for longer than either of us care to remember and our paths have crossed on a regular basis during that time, fishing with Ilminster, Chard and Stoke clubs and also at places like Bearley and Covey lakes. After taking voluntary redundancy last year he decided to set up the Somerset Rig Company to tie hooklengths and

The Golden Years: Match Fishing Memories – A Review

I reviewed Fishing and Testicles by Billy Makin back in 2017, it’s a very funny read and you can see what I thought of it here, I mentioned in that review that I would love it if he ever wrote his autobiography so when I saw that he’d published The Golden Years: Match Fishing Memories, my prayers were finally answered! The book

Dean Barlow Feeder Links Review

Regular readers of the blog will know I hadn’t done much feeder fishing for years but then I fished Bob’s match two years ago which was rod only and since then I’ve been doing a bit and really enjoying it. The trouble is, it means having to buy even more kit! I ordered lots of bits and pieces including some feeder links


Avon Roach Project Book Review

Trevor from the Avon Roach Project did an interview for the blog last year (which can be found here if you haven’t read it) in it he mentioned a book was in the pipeline which was due out this year. I got hold of a copy and it’s a fascinating read, obviously through the interview and the project’s website and blog, I

Fishsurfing App Review

My latest review is a look at the fishing app, Fishsurfing, which is a social network for anglers to share their experiences and catches through blogs, photos and videos. It’s free to download and available for iOS and Android mobile devices and is fully translated into 18 languages. According to the promotional info, the main menu features are; Gallery: allows anglers to
