First trip using Bait-Tech baits

Today was my first outing using Bait-Tech products it was only going to be a short day session so I decided that I would not venture any further than my local pond. I had 4 runs through the day which unfortunately all resulted in lost fish due to hook pulls (I hate barbless hooks!). Never mind, there is always next time and if it was […]

Why you should consider buying Delkim alarms

I don’t think there is a Carp angler alive that has not heard of Delkim bite alarms and there must be more reviews of this one bit of kit than you can shake a stick at.
