LRF – Jigging For Couches Bream

There are moments, most often in the summer months, when I realise how lucky I am to live and fish in Plymouth. It may not be the richest city, but the riches below the surface of the Plymouth Sound are vast. I spent an August evening fishing with Maurice Mitchinton, which went from typical to…

Feature – One Rod, One Lure, One Chance To Catch A Fish

The calm clear night was perfect for ultralight lure fishing, even the tiniest of bites could be felt tugging at the fine Japanese braid. With barely a breath of wind, the harbour looked like a sheet of…

LRF – The Majorcraft Meet

The Big Lerf 2020
