Water-to-Go Bottle Review

As I’ve said before on the blog, one of the unexpected perks of writing my weekly posts is that occasionally I get contacted and asked if I’d like to review a company’s products and as long as the item in question is related to fishing or the outdoors, I’m more than happy to. I will always try and test the product and

Canvas Design Review

Through this blog I occasionally get things sent to me to review and I really enjoy doing it as I love getting home to find unexpected parcels waiting for me! I try to write an honest review of any products that come my way or indeed, any gear that I actually buy! I was recently contacted by a lady from Canvas Design asking

Guru Hooklength Storage System

There’s been a lot of hype about the new Guru hooklength storage system so while I was in Tackleuk today I thought I’d pick one up and see what all the fuss was about. I already own one of the MAP hooklength systems and you can read my review of it here MAP Hooklength system review. To be honest it’s a cracking box

New Bait Tech Groundbaits Review

Anybody who knows me or reads this blog regularly will by now have realised I’m a big fan of Bait Tech products. Their expander pellets in my opinion are the best in the business and I’ve enjoyed a lot of success with the 4mm’s at Summerhayes. They are a company that doesn’t rest on it’s laurels and they are continually bringing out new

TF Gear Hardcore Camo Waterproof Jacket Review

Well it seems to be a relative review fest at the moment, I’ve just received the TF Gear Camo Waterproof Jacket from site supporter Fishtec and first impressions are very, very good. Now I’m not a carp/speci hunter but I wanted a jacket that I could take with me to Gillhams Resort in Thailand as at this time of year there can be

FishingUk App Review

I’ve done a few reviews on my blog but I’m venturing into new territory with this one, my first review of a fishing app. I’m not a technophobe but I’ve never really played around with apps much on my phone with Facebook, Twitter, E-bay and BBC Sport about as adventurous as it got. Well with fishing apps becoming ever more popular I thought

Ringers Pellet Pump Review

Now a pellet pump isn’t the most exciting thing to review but I have to admit I was quite looking forward to receiving one of the new Ringers Pellet Pumps. As soon as I saw Tackleuk had some in stock I put my order in and it arrived a couple of days later (top service as ever from Tackleuk). I’ve previously used pumps

Perry St Pond – Good Friday Match – 29th March 2013

As always Chard fish a match on the Good Friday at Perry St Pond and with the spring league starting in two weeks time I hoped I could get some clues on how I was going to approach the league. After some water quality issues the club decided to ban pellet and meat which threw my usual game plan of fishing shallow

The Best Of Barlow – A Review

For me, the next best thing to actually going fishing, is reading about fishing! I get all the monthly mags as well as the Angling Times but I also read a lot of books about angling (this might surprise some of my readers who thought I just liked looking at the pictures!). I ordered the Best Of Barlow recently and I must

V2V Fishing Dvd Reviews

I’ve just been sent two Dvd’s by the lovely Steve Lockett today (both from the V2V stable) and I’ve just finished watching them both. I must confess I haven’t seen an instructional Dvd for a while (in fact the last time I watched one I think it was on VHS!). The two titles Steve sent me were: Will Raison – Silvers On The Pole
