It’s been a while since I last fished with a lure rod but this morning I dusted the gear down for a session on a pool.
Not only did I fancy the style of angling but it was also very practical, as I didn’t have much time at all before I had to set off for work.
As I’ve said on so many occasions previously – and no doubt will again in the future – lure fishing is perfect when time is tight.
Although only there for thirty minutes or so, I was off the mark instantly with a small perch.
That’s how it remained throughout the session, but I’m not complaining though, it was just good to catch.
The tackle I fished with was as follows: Fox Rage Ultron drop shot rod, Fox Rage Ultron 2500 reel, 10lb Sunline braid on reel.
Fox Rage Illusion fluorocarbon 10lb 3oz (1.5 metres) joined to the braid with a small swivel.
Micro jig head 1g size 6 hook. Glider 2 inch rubber fish. All knots (3) blood knots.
