If you like fishing from the beach, boat, pier or rocks, then you’ve probably read a copy or two of Sea Angler magazine in your time. Sea Angler is the leading magazine for sea fishing news, tackle, tactics and marks to fish.
And if you bought it this month, you’d also have been pleased to find a free ‘Alan Yates & Matt Hayes’ DVD enclosed. Happy days!
Here’s a look at what’s in issue 466, courtesy of the ‘Contents’ page:
King Ragworm Reigns Over St David’s
This is wrasse fishing at its very best. Martin and Sandra Thompson head for Pembrokeshire’s rocky coast to catch the bold ballans.
England shore match angler George Smith heads to Bohemia Point at Sutton-On-Sea, Lincolnshire, to find out what’s feeding after a hard winter.
Laws And Logic Of Shockleaders
Confusion still reigns over why shore anglers must cast with high strength leaders, but you have to ask this question: “Would you like a 5oz lead heading your way at 100mph because a line had parted?”. Chris Clark lays down the law.
Mullet Make My Day
With bad weather beating everyone up, Irish fisheries expert Mike Hennessey takes us to Rosscarbery lagoon where you can see the mullet ghosting under the swans. Will they feed?
Basic Beach Fishing
If you’re a first-time shore angler and tackle, rigs and bait leave you confused, Sea Angler’s new series is just for you. They kick off with Paul Fenech showing you how to tie the most commonly used rig on the beach – the two-hook flapper.
Do you carry too much gear in your tackle box or are you a skinny rucksack minimalist? Alan Yates spells out what you should and shouldn’t take with you to the beach.
Are You Sitting Comfortably?
What’s better – a tackle box or a rucksack? Alan Yates favours the Shakespeare Beta box fitted with a Breakaway carry frame/seat back combination. Sea Angler show you how to fit out your box for the long haul.
Silver Flashing Sandeels
How many sea anglers fish with sandeels? Not a lot, say Alan Yates, but during the summer they are better than lugworms for many larger species. Here’s how to collect and fish them with deadly effect.
