Latest News and Recent Catches From the World of Fishing

Sure, there are loads of things to think about when you're into fishing, but what you really care about is catching monstrous flipping fish, no? Show me an angler that doesn't want to see a picture of a world record catch and I'll show you a non-fisherman!!

Catching redfish in Louisiana

Catching Redfish in Louisiana

I just had to share this video. This pretty much sums up the excitement of catching fish off the surface – that sense of anticipation when the fish starts to follow the fly. It’s a great video and the fishing looks amazing (I know it’s hard to tell how many they catch in a day […]

Pike and zander fishing at Grafham Water

Bob Church Zander
