Fishing The World Wide Web

So here I am after having one of those days that I’d rather forget caused, I think, by a stomache bug that went round work last Friday. I’d planned to go out yesterday but I just wasn’t feeling up to it and have taken the day off work today to get myself back to normal.

But, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining and I’ve done a bit of searching on the internet for bits and pieces about sea fishing and angling in general. The internet has certainly changed the way we gather information about our hobby / sport and with a few quick google searches I’ve come up with a couple of gems.

I was searching for “Bass Fishing” and although I usually stay away from youtube links as they’re normally a bit dodgy I came across this film, made in 1947 by Van Campen Heilner, it’s not up to date by any stretch of the imagination, or even in the UK, but it was good just to sit back and watch this film of fishing from half a century ago.

The other main thing I managed to find today was Dave Lumb’s Specialist Tackle. Now I don’t usually link to tackle dealers but Dave makes custom rods and gear for most freshwater fishing and I expect he could make rods for salt water plugging for species such as Bass and Pollack, but the main reason Dave’s company took me by suprise is it’s only about 2 miles from my house and I’d never even heard of it!

And talking of dealers – we’ve a new one opened up in Southport called Tony’s Tackle, I had a quick look and it looks promising, it’s on Rufford Road (B5244), Southport


  1. This is certainly alot of guidance to figure out exactly what to use in certain instances,all the fishing rods i personally use are likely significantly less nice such as the products talked about right here for these are far better constructed even so the reels are greater since these are out of unquestionably the 70s when they crafted them which will last. Undoubtedly these kinds of fishing rods are much more receptive although Simply put i am not overly assured about the particular stability issue,For certain i will return here for added tips at a later point. kudos

    Offshore fishing is certainly the fave sport activity,can there be loads of different places to be able to catch many muskie in this particular region as well consider using this type of strategy, the folks I know in this region haven?t talked about this kind of detail as a result i’m trying to find an easier way to hook even more. The varieties of fish in a majority of these streams all-around here apparently hit even a clean fishing hook at times but its certainly not the particular fish im trying to hook. Thank you for the information and even are going to be looking towards your following page…
