The Awesome Angler

I have been a big fan of the 'Totally Awesome Fishing Show' youtube channel for a long time. This father and son team have made a huge effort to share the joined up basics of fishing, which is often missing from the angling press that seems to be centred on selling things. They have covered everything from catching carp on baked beans to shark fishing and all with a not too serious but informative style.

As well as videos, Mike Pullen the son has started a  FREE Online magazine called, wait for it, ‘The Awesome Angler.’ I can only imagine this is a huge undertaking but again something special that can only encourage others to get out there and catch some fish and also fill up that time between trips.

The current third issue has a mix that covers amongst other things peacock bass fishing stateside, big uk catfish and bigger catfish from Thailand as well as trout on crank baits. These articles come from a range of fishermen and writers that I am not sure you would find in any other magazine out there.

I have posted a link where you can download the Magazine and catch up on the previous two issues. Link to The Awesome Angler Watch out Field and Stream, the Pullens are coming

Rigging Soft Plastics, The Through Wire

Through wiring soft plastic lures is something I first came across with savage gear lures. It is a great idea allowing the lure to move away from the hook which saves on baits and I am guessing it gives the fish less to pry the hook out with.

It took a few experiments to get the process down to tee but I think I have cracked it with this video, it would be great to see how other people get on with this method

I know it is not lure making, or lure fishing but it is important, I will just leave it there.
