Smoothhound Challenge underway

First day of our week long Pure Fishing smoothhound challenge today. This is the 6th year of our highly successful event, with big hounds being caught every day of every year. This year however, the hounds are proving slow to get going from Holyhead. We’ve already landed a few with the best over 20lb, but the numbers have yet to hit that expected. However today’s crew is made up on regulars, including past winner, 20lb hound captor, 14 hounds in a day captor and many personal bests. We have plenty of food, loads to drink and numerous stories to tell […]

Pure Fishing Spurdog Competition 2017

This year working together with Pure Fishing, amongst our many competitions we offered anglers the chance to win a Greys GR100S 20lb Boat & Abu Ambassadeur 7000C LW multiplier reel combo by simply catching the heaviest spurdog aboard My Way over a period of 6 weeks, commencing on April 01st and ending 14th May 2017.

It is safe to say that the fishing can be exhilarating; […]

Rampage on My Way

Had a day on the boat myself on Friday 12th May. Bit of a spring clean in the morning, tidying up the cabin, that looked like a battlezone following a few great weeks of angling. The weather was fine though, so it called for a spot of relaxation and fishing. A few hours afloat with friend Keith was called for, nothing too hectic, just a spot of smoothie fishing. We’ve had a few hounds already this month, but it is this weekend that I class as the traditional start to our hounding season. We weren’t disappointed. I wouldn’t say it […]

Tackle On Trial – Penn Squall 20LW

When we embarked on our sponsorship deal with Pure Fishing, it was important for us to obtain the right equipment for our waters. With the likes of Penn, Abu Garcia and Shakespeare all part of the Pure Fishing family of companies, we had quite a decision to make on the exact products that suited our needs. Reels had to be robust enough to endure the rigours of novice handling, especially line lay, so a strong level wind in particular was essential. They also had to be fairly easy to use. Drag system being crucial, for personal fishing I love the […]
