Otterspool Cod_281214

Planty and Dave decided on Otterspool for a change of scenery. While packing the car they decided to leave the drop net at home as they didn’t really think they’d need it…that turned out to be a mistake!  Literally within minutes of Dave’s first cast his rod nearly got pulled over…find out what ensued here

A few trips aboard Discovery this week…

I was lucky enough to get a call from Gary to help out with a couple of charters this week aboard Discovery fishing in the Mersey.

I get a great deal of pleasure out of passing information and tips on to lads who are either complete beginners, novices or just new to fishing the Mersey… not that I’m any sort of expert :roll: …but I am only too happy to share what nuggets of knowledge I do have and to lend a helping hand with baiting up, unhooking fish and to help out with the inevitable tangles that down-tiding in the strong Mersey flow will produce :doh: FULL REPORT HERE
