Bait, spinning, lure and other tactics

Fishing can be a very solitary pastime which I personally really don’t mind at  times.  I use this time as my kind off Tai Chi.  Unless you take yourself off and plonk yourself in the middle of nowhere invariably one often gets chatting and swapping notes with fellow anglers or people you’ve never met before just curious about the area and so on.  As I tend to stick to my fly fishing on the Adur estuary I get a bit stuck for conversation or advice when it comes to  bait fishing,  spinning and the tactic that go with it.  I did meet a guy on the river the other week  he turned out to be angling guide called Robin or “Fishy Rob”  who happened to be out with a couple of clients that day.  I must admit I have heard of this guy and his reputation and passion for the sport and deals with the likes of bait, spinning , shore fishing and the knowledge that I lack so it was great to bump into him and exchange contacts plus hopefully get together and wet a line with him one day. Check him out  at    or
