Stone Basse Surprise

Fishing is a funny old game. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, nothing goes right. On another day, you just happen to be in the right place, at the right time. When the latter happens, you need to be ready to take full advantage and make the most of any slice of luck that comes your way. This was exactly the case for me back in the summer during a trip to southern Ireland. I was out with Tom Collins who runs the “Loch An Lasc”, a 36’ Fastworker out of Union Hall in we...

Being born in the steel city of Sheffield, I’m no stranger to the Yorkshire coast. As a young fella, the family used to head to Whitby for day trips, and I remember fishing the quays in the town for small billet, codling and the occasional flattie. So it was good to find myself back in Whitby taking part in the Shakespeare Ugly Stik Tour. The tour’s objective is to travel the country fishing aboard Shakespeare-sponsored boats, aiming to catch as many species as possible ...

What the supplier says; The Rocksweeper Nano rods are the flagship, a top level evolution from all previous rods within the arena of salt and freshwater predator fishing. What makes this four-strong range so special? Not just the components or the design, but rather the blanks which incorporate a brand new technology development.

Terry’s Travels Wild Irish Tench

  On a recent and failed adventure in search of Rudd something caught my eye, a dark shape “porpoised” out in the middle of the lough. “Probably a Coot” I thought, but the bird failed to re-appear. As I focused on the area of disturbed water, another broke the surface. There was no mistaking, definitely a fish, and very similar to a large Tench! This new discovery and accompanying burst of adrenaline immediately pushed my Rudd target species onto the back-burne...

Shakespeare Devils Own We took some samples of these attractive soft bait artificials in search of some Bristol Channel bass. At best, these fish can be finicky at best, often just plucking at the tails of any artificial lure offered. On our chosen day, we fished a variety of sizes and colours. It wasn't long before the attraction of the Devils Own shads became apparent. The silver and blue shanks of the lures reflected the light perfectly making it easier for the...

On a recent work trip down in Cork City, I managed to cram in quite a bit of specimen hunting for several species, and thanks to my angling mate Sid Kennedy, I also squeezed in a very enjoyable Rudd-Bream Hybrid session. Sid had kindly pre-baited a secret location on the local dam, one that could only be accessed by boat in order to make sure the spot would be vacant. With a little bit of lady luck, there should be a few large Hybrids sniffing around. Bill Brazier,...

I was recently in Courtmacsherry, Ireland and had been out with skipper Mark Gannon for the day aboard the Lady Louise. We’d enjoyed some great ground fishing including pollack, ling, wrasse, conger, cod and much more. As we’d motored out that morning we’d seen quite a few bass swirling as they moved up in to the estuary. In conversation during the day it was suggested we should keep some mackerel for bait and have a go for these bass that evening. The timing was dead right, ...

Once a year for the past seven years, I have offered the young angling volunteers from the “Angling First” charity in Northern Ireland a potentially memorable deep-sea angling adventure. Most of the young lads I meet later move on to other opportunities in life, and a new handful will sign-up to the charitable angling cause. The charity gives these young lads a great life-education as they move towards adult-hood including people-skills, decision making, organising and...
