Through a variety of lockdowns and tier systems within the UK we were only been able to fish for an approximate 4 months in 2020. Despite everything we have still managed a total of 27 species for the anglers taking part.

Graham took the opportunity to help his species hunting with a lighter outfit from the brand new PENN range of rods and reels.
The PENN Wrath Bolescopic rods are available in two different versions; a lighter 7 ft version that can be used with weights up to 110g and a 8ft version up to 250g. These easy-to-transport bolo rods are well balanced and due to the sensitive tip, the rods have a perfect bite registration.
PENN Squall Low Profile baitcast reel. Offering all the durability you would expect from PENN. A full metal body, 5+1 stainless steel bearing system, and machined brass gears give the Squall durability at it’s core. Available in 200, 300 and 400 sizes with both standard and high speed gear ratios. Left hand models available in standard gear ratio only.
Looking forward to another hard fought species hunt through 2021
