Since Light Rock Fishing (LRF) has hit the UK there has been a certain stigma surrounding it. Some believe that LRF is about nothing more than 'tiddler bashing', pulling up gobies, blennies and the smaller species of wrasse like the beautifully marked corkwing. Although LRF is very suited to this, it's not what it's all about.
With me spending more time on the rivers, unsuccessfully hunting down salmon. I decided that if I was lucky enough to hook one of these glorious fish, I wanted a rod that would handle the close quarter battle and not let me down. This got me looking into all sorts of rods and after a quick chat with John at Lure Heaven UK I had a rod winging it's way to me ready to do battle.
The last two weeks has seen me dust off my LRF gear and with the last week off work I had nothing better to do than drive my truck around off road and go fishing...life isn't that bad.
My first stop was Fowey and as reported in my last blog I had a couple of flounder. The way these things fight have got me searching for more. I brought my search closer to home. Every year good size flounder are caught within a mile of my house. Some of the ground isn't the cleanest for lure fishing so I searched for some cleaner ground.
