Pure Fishing – April 2016

Penn Fathom 30LD twin speed, Planet Sea Fishing first look review. Penn Fathom 30LD twin speed, angler review, read more here As with everything I guess, it’s the test of time following constant use that will judge! But that said, our new rods & reels do receive far more use ( and at times abuse) than a piece of kit bought by an angler for his / her personal use. The Shakespeare Fishing Agility 12lb rods are so far proving to be up to most tasks and performing admirably. These shots are from recent frolics in Holyhead Deep. Gear Review […]

PENN Fathom 30LD twin speed

Dave Hellon, Angler Review I have been lucky enough to get out on My Way with Gethyn a couple of times this past month and it is quite apparent that his new Shakespeare Agility 12lb class rods are getting quite a lot of attention and they rightly deserve it. You can see by many pics that they are perfect for the fishing out of Holyhead, as are the Penn reels he matches them up with. There is however also a hidden gem aboard My Way….The Penn Fathom lever drag twin speed….I have been fortunate to use thie on my last […]

March 2016 – Spring Match Challenge Last weekend saw My Way take part in an invitation Spring Challenge match between anglers representing Wales, Scotland and the hosts the RAF sea angling section.

2015 Aboard My Way

High winds ripped through much of the UK last winter and Anglesey certainly wasn’t let off. Sadly these storm force weather fronts cancelled our first few trips, but also left us in awe of the power and destruction Mother Nature can inflict when she so wishes. These photos are from the Rocky Coast, showing the barrage of abuse suffered by Holyhead Breakwater in its on-going mission to keep the port safe from destructive storm fronts. We finally managed a few days afloat during the second week of February, armed with a group of regulars each trip was always going to […]

Red Gurnard

The Red Gurnard is a small bodied gurnard with a sharp pointed snout. The Red has a large head and long slender body. It is one of the smallest of the European Gurnard family. The lower three rays of the pectoral fins are separate, finger-like rays that contain sensory organs, that the gurnard uses to feel for food in sand and sediment. The Red Gurnard has a very bright red upper side colouring, changing slightly pink, to white at the underside. The Red Gurnard is wide spread though out the UK with many north Wales ports catching a fair amount, […]

Conger Eel

With a long sleek, scale less body, an upper jaw extending beyond it’s lower, there is not much to mistake a conger eel with. The colour of a conger can vary slightly depending on the ground it inhabits, but tends to be from a light to a dark grey/black appearance. The dorsal fin on a conger starts at the pectoral fins, and runs the length of its body. The British record for a conger eel is in excess of 130lb, although there have been commercially caught eels recorded over 250lb. The congers tend to inhabit very rough and rocky areas. […]
