Berkley Ultra 8

Similar to rods and reels, one line whether it braid or mono won’t always be suitable for every application. We have a variety of braids on our reels from both Berkley and Spiderwire, all depending on its use. Spiderwire used on lighter reels often over cleaner ground and Fireline when a tougher braid is needed. Berkley are long established as market leaders in braid, with Fireline regarded as the best in the modern Superlines for over 2 decades. A reputation for being strong and more abrasion resistant than others yet maintaining a low diameter for its strength. Originally a four-carrier […]

Species Hunt round up

It’s been a month since we started our new fun competition the My Way 2 Species Hunt 2020. Sadly the weather hasn’t really been in our favour, the Menai Strait benefits from shelter from most winds, barring a blow from the South West and the recent storms and strong winds have restricted our outings. That said we’ve still managed to get a good few trips in, with a decent little mixed bag of species for winter aboard My Way 2. Majority have been within the Menai and one glorious day outside and rewarded with thornback rays and spurdogs. It’s still […]

Hard work!

We had a Great day afloat last last time out. Whiting the mainstay of the day with 1, 2 and 3 at a time for all onboard. Yesterday, despite a week of lovely calm weather was completely different. Even the whiting played very hard to get, part way through the trip it was a desperate affair to avoid the dreaded blank! Fortunately everyone did catch from a mix of species, whiting, dab, LSSeaScorpion, pout and a few huss, sadly though nothing in any real number. It was a still a great time afloat, calm misty seas, a little bit of banter and […]

And we’re off

Gorgeous day afloat last Sunday. Fishing was hectic with plenty of fish coming to the boat, however species not so obliging.

Anglers record their catches through the next 12 months and the angler with the most species wins a £300 tackle voucher to spend on a new rod, […]
