Berkley Nemesis

4 new colours make their into the 4 inch Gulp! Nemesis range. The clear transluscent finish in Clear Purple Shimmer, Clear Red Black Silver, Clear Green Silver and Clear Lavender Pearl Holo is going to prove deadly on all manner of species.
Combine the fish catching profile of a Jerkshad and the enticing tail action of a grub and you get the Berkley Nemesis. Designed in Australia the Nemesis shape is now available in a 4” size. The tail action of this shape has to be seen to be believed. On the drop or on the wind, the Nemesis tail swims at the slowest of speeds delivering continuous lifelike action. View the PDF here

Sorting the tackle box

What is it about catching bream on lures, or any fish for that matter, which makes an angler, buy all kinds of weird and wonderful lures to try and trick them?  After spending the winter re organising and sorting out the tackle box, (numerous times) I discovered that there were lures in my collection, which have not caught a fish let alone seen a drop of water. There were hard bodies of all types, deep diving minnows, shallow water minnows, shads, surface lures and assorted soft plastics.

These days it seems the internet is the first place most people refer to for information and advice on just about every product or service imaginable.
