Facilitating and witnessing the success of someone who had never cast a lure before – what a buzz!
It only takes a second (and a 72cm bass!) to turn a quiet session into one you’ll reminisce about forever!
A veritable feast of lure caught bass for my clients, but it hasn’t been easy to find them, or what they want!
Recent client catches, in addition to examples of the capricious nature of the bass and how we’ve overcome this.

Watercraft, instinct and the right lure – added to a huge dollop of luck! How I landed a recent whopper!
A dossier of client catches, including the methods, lure types and the reasons behind the tactics.
With my guiding season having been delayed due to COVID-19 it feels great to be releasing this post!
An almost perfect session as fellow angling writer, guide and photographer Henry Gilbey makes the trip over the border to south Devon.

All this wind and rain has made it difficult in comparison to last winter – but the bass are still there!
