Light Game/LRF Social – Tub Gurnard On Lures

I have talked many times about the social side of LRF, how marks are shared, anglers are friendly and meet ups are common. In these odd times, the social element becomes even more important as we try to forget about the drama going on in the world, so we can just enjoy being by the…

Light Game/LRF – Turbo Tuesday

Cornwall is not just a county of pasties, surfing and second homes, it’s also the land of endless fishing variety… I know how lucky I am being able to fish this coastline on a regular basis. Two Cornish species on my wishlist this year are the greater weever and turbot. There was a chance of…

Review – Majorcraft Jigpara Shore Jigs
