Bits and Bobs - 18/04/2011
Blimey, last two weeks have flown by, although I haven't really had the inclination to go anywhere. Last session left me a bit jaded and wondering if I was just fishing for fishing's sake. The cold I had three weeks ago is still hanging around as well. I sound like a 40 a day man when I wake up in the morning! Still, there's positive things on the horizon. Going down to Pembs for 10 days over Easter, followed by a surfing trip down to Saunton with the lads. I'm taking down the lure fishing gear this time and hoping to hook up with a local chap while I'm there for some bassing. That's lead me into the high tech and expensive world of bass lures. Twenty quid for a piece of plastic (an albeit beautifully designed piece of Japanese plastic) is pushing anybody's budget, prompting me to delve into my own lure collection. This revealed no end of other bits of plastic that have never seen the end of my line. I can only think that I must have had my nose in the Harris Angling catalogue a bit too often! I've sorted a few out (mostly surface lures by Heddon, Smithwick, Luhr Jensen, Argobast and Bagley) and put them on eBay along with a couple of centrepins if anybody's interested (search for "toodle2" under items by seller in advanced search).
