Here at UK Fisherman, we are always delighted to get away from the desk and actually spend some time fishing, so we couldn't wait to get out and try out some "hybrid metalica fishing lures" sent to us recently, courtesy of The House of Bruar Product Description: We tested out the following lures from Payo: Aegis 110 lure (yellow head, silver shad) Toeshot 120 lure (black back, chrome and gold) Toeshot 120 lure (blue back, chrome and silver) Click to…

Produced by Linjazro, the Duck Sentinel is an innovative new product designed to protect surface baits from widlfowl. Using the Duck Sentinel means you don't have to remove floating baits when ducks and other widlfowl appear. Product Description:
Review by Crazy Crab: August 2010The popular Underspin reel isn't just for ultralight enthusiasts anymore. Loaded with 10-lb. test for bigger lures and bigger fish. It sports the same four ball-bearing drive as the original Underspin. And each has a stainless steel front cone and rear cover, titanium line guide and dual pickup pins, lightweight graphite frame, smooth adjustable disc drag system, on and off anti-reverse, left/right convertible retrieve, heavy-duty metal gears, insta-grab line pick up, machined aluminum handle with…
This brand new product EuroCatfisher Digital Scales comes from a company called Fisherking. They are real beasties capable of registering up to a mighty 200kg. Don't worry if you don't catch fish like that, there is also a 100kg version. Being digital, the scales offer such features as metric or imperial measures, large backlit display, a "hold" button which keeps the weigh reading visible for 10 seconds, an overload indication and an auto power off function, which turns the scale…
Prologic Quick Release adaptors. No matter what your angling discipline, these handy little adaptors will save you masses of time on the bank as they can be used on everything from landing nets to storm poles! Sometimes it's the little things that can make all the difference; and such is the case with this quick release adaptor from Prologic. OK, you can't use it on the hook, so in that respect it's not going to catch you any more fish,…
Top commercial match carp anglers have been trying to solve the problem of using pellets with a feeder, they needed a new feeder that delivered pellet bait like a 'dinner plate' away from the feeder. The SHOT-GUN does just that! You load the soaked mix into the chamber, then when on the bottom the SHOT-GUN gradually shoots out the bait leaving a separate non-obstructed 'dinner plate' complete with the hook bait Review: Accurate lose feeding with pellets can be a…
PRESTON STOTZ SHOT Description: Preston stotz are a hydrid shot designed for use on larger diameter lines (they also work perfectly on fine diameters!). The wide groove makes placing them on the line quick and easy. Another advantage is the increased surface area that grips the line. This prevents damage and also stops them 'pinging' off the line under stress. The flat ends also produce a neat bulk when they are grouped together. They are available in 4 sizes. Review:…
SKINZ HOOKBAIT PELLETS Description: Skinz hookbait pellets from Sonu Baits are an advanced, skinned, hookable pellet type bait full of powerful fish attractants. The skin is full of soluble feeding triggers that go to work immediately once immersed in water. The skin has an elastic type property that grips the hook and prevents the bait from falling off during casting or on the strike. You can use Skinz Hookbait Pellets straight from the bag for a slow sinking bait. This…
CHEAP MATCH FISHING RODS I hope that you’re reading this article just after it’s published, as I have a feeling that some of the rods I’m about to mention will be sold out very quickly! Internet stalwart, and clearance retailer for quality mail order fishing tackle, TackleBargains have been in touch today, as they are moving premises. Although they’re staying on the same industrial park and actually moving to a larger warehouse, the thought of moving so much stock at…
KORUM QUICK CHANGE BEADS Description: Quick change beads enable you to change your hooklength instantly and also act as a shock bead when fishing a running feeder. Simple to use and totally reliable they are perfect for stillwater and river styles of feeder and bomb fishing. Review: Being from the old school of fishing, I very rarely used to use little gadgets like the Korum Quick Change Beads...in fact I very rarely used to use hooklengths at all. All that…
This is not so much of a review by me but a chance to gaup in awe at some superb carp caught recently using Carple Steamers Baits from the Baitmaster. Words seem unncessary - just feast your eyes on these beauties and then head over to THE BAITMASTER to order your baits direct from them. Red Crab Steamers have been catching fast and furiously where ever they go, whether it's European or British Waters. For example Ben May from Carpers.net…
Masterline Signature Super Specialist Rods 2.5TC When Dave Havers of Tacklebargains.co.uk called me to say he’d got a batch of carp rods in for reduced clearance, I must say, I was over to see him in a shot. Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than happy with the Sportex rods I had built around four years ago, but just lately there have been just one or two occasions where I have felt the need for something a touch bigger. In…
Traditional Handmade Floatsspan> There are many occasions in life when you find yourself getting really excited in anticipation of an event, only to be let down when it finally happens. I’m happy to say that this definitely was not the case when I eventually got round to ordering a few of the Traditional Handmade Floats from TackleBargains. I’d seen these floats available some time ago and was immediately drawn towards them. It was the combination of materials and colours, and…
The Middy "Rock Ard" Camo Match Carp Net - courtesy of Middy Tackle Description: The Middy Rock 'Ard Camo Match Carp Net is a landing net designed specifically with match fisherman in mind. Light enough to handle with ease and be shipped in and out regularly which match fishermen need, but strong enough to deal with some of the larger fish, espcially carp that dominate many commercial fisheries these days. RRP: £19.99 Available in match carp size and specimen match…
The Middy "Big Gob" Camo Keepnet - courtesy of Middy Tackle Description: The Big Gob is a totally new concept in keepnets that incorporates the use of camouflaged netting, this is to stop the net spooking carp when fishing in the margins, as many anglers do these days. The “Big Gob” name is derived from the uniquely shaped top ring which is designed to aid transfer of fish from landing net to keepnet. Further features include: Full 3m length. Internal…
