A series of three high-performance reels designed for long-range casting on both UK and European shores. What the wholesaler says; The 515 mag2 is perfect for targeting rough-ground Bass as well as general beach work, but with its greater line capacity the larger 525 MAG2 is the reel to choose for long range beach and mixed rough ground fishing.

Success on the stick

We meet up with James Robbins on the River Ribble, where he gives a masterclass in stick float fishing for big winter roach. Finding the motivation to gofishing when there is a raw chill in the air can be difficult. Negative thoughts seem to dominate: is it really worth spending money on bait and petrol when a blank may be in the offing? Perhaps it would be better to sit by the fire and recall those leisurely summer days when the fish fed freely all day long. As common as ...

It is built using heavy-duty materials to ensure many years of use but offering high levels of protection for the fish, with generous foam padding.

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 ...

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....on the bass

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...
