There are plenty of signs that Im getting older , my beard is grey , my eyesight is diminishing , a couple of rouge hairs have even sprouted in my ears . Perhaps more worrying is the fact that I am becoming somewhat set in my ways . The crazy eel might be another example of this.  Its been around for a couple of years now ,my ever kind sponsors Fiiish  UK sent me a batch to play around with and if I am honest I didn’t really...

There has been a lot of talk of the FG Knot recently or call it the FC knot ? Its been around a good few years , we used it for GT fishing , it was fiddly and I lazily relied on our guide to do the dirty work and re tie our leaders .Here is a good video with the latest simplified version Its tricky on a boat when we are sloshing back and forth on a tidal rip. My drifts are short and often close to jaggedy rocks so burying my head in...

In this day and age every review or mention of fishing tackle tends to focus on the  new , whats hip and in many cases what is effectively untested gear . Nice photos, nice words but often full of speculation rather than experience.  I’ve been in the game for over a decade now and somethings never change. Daiwa sponsor me or should I say Zen2 . We use and abuse  Daiwa gear , not exclusively I should add  . I like to flirt with...

Today the windows and doors a rattling and the lights occasionally flicker as a storm passes over lands end . Twenty four hours ago we were heading out at 20 knots over a flat calm sea with high hopes. The great thing about fishing this deep into the winter is that you can quite easily find yourself fishing at dusk and a dawn in the same session. You have to drop everything and grab those holes in the weather and make the most of the...

June can be a sketchy month down here . The large Spring Bass have been and gone , where do they go ? I just don’t know  . Once we go into Summer mode I would regard any bass over 7 Lb as exceptional . I also believe the Bass will become far more ” house trained” and will stick to their favourite spots provided the larder stays stocked and they don’t get harassed by seals or humans . These resident fish form...

Today I fished with Roger , Dave and Dave . These guys friendships span back to the school days and its always a pleasure to become part of the gang for a day. I have a job to do but I always enjoy the banter . Its a busy task managing 3 guys and a boat on the drift in shallow water around submerged rocks . You drop you guard at your peril ! I rarely fish in such circumstances . When we struggle to find the fish I hunt for them with...

Last September a crew of 3 professional film makers made their way down to Cornwall to film with me . I certainly felt the pressure as I knew that we had 2 days to get this done and a pretty substantial budget was allocated. Aaron from Bearleft TV and his henchmen were great fun to work with, we also had a local crew providing a very expensive remote control camera drone . I was excited !! I enlisted the help of my friend/ guide  Joel...

2013 In a nutshell


Posted By on Dec 9, 2013

2013 Has been an amazing year and in a way I don’t want this year to end.  I cant complain about the bookings on Zen2 or the weather . It was a massive learning curve and the number of new waypoints on my GPS has exploded around the county. We started the season on the Eddystone launching from Plymouth . We fished Falmouth Bay and Lizard, Roseland ,  Porthleven and Mounts Bay, St Ives 7 Stones, Padstow and Newquay . One area of...
