Grayling; The Epitome of Winter Angling

There is little darker than a mid-winter’s night. The kind of night where the only hint of light comes from an endless mass of stars that fill the vastness of an otherwise desolate abyss; where a deep cold grips the land, as if frozen in time and where the respite of dawn seems an eternity …

The ‘Specimen Lake’

We’ve all done it. On most, if not all ventures to a new venue we, perhaps subconsciously, set our expectations based on our research and knowledge of our chosen location. Occasionally these subliminal expectations are met, perhaps even exceeded. However all too often we are found guilty of overlooking several key aspects and reality falls …

Close Range Commercial Carp on the ‘Tip’.

Our latest session saw us head south to Dumfries and Galloway in search of some Carp action on light gear. All too often many anglers are guilty of setting out ‘over gunned’ for these fish but there is no better way to fully enjoy the pure dogged power of these fish than to target them …

Loch Lomond. A Coarse Angler’s Paradise

Located a mere 20 miles from Glasgow city centre and widely known as the Gateway to the Highlands lies a body of water which could very well be described as an inland sea. At 24 miles long and up to 6 miles wide Loch Lomond is the jewel in the crown of the Loch Lomond …
