Pure Keith

We had some glorious sunshine and calm seas today for our first December Fun Competition on the Menai Strait, generously sponsored once again by the worlds largest tackle company Pure Fishing. A mid morning sail had everyone ready and chomping at the bit to get started. Our first anchor at Pwllfanog saw a few whiting, pout and a huss hit the score sheet and produce beaming smiles. Not quite as many fish as we wanted. A move further down the Menai towards Bangor pier gave us a steady stream of whiting a few dogs and a bonus thornback ray for […]

Davids win

Fun if a little damp day afloat yesterday for our November Pure Fishing fun competition. A steady flow of whiting, with dab and mini species kept us entertained most of the day along with 12 huss. Eventual winner was David Hellon from Benllech, who stole the win from Pat Whing by 6 points, helped out by his 3 huss that sadly ignored Pats baits. David was rewarded with a Shakespeare Agility Tipster rod for his efforts. A few fish, plenty of banter and a very welcome chilli from Greg. All in a great fun day afloat. We have 1 space […]

Still everyone struggled on and Mersey based angler Chris came out the eventual winner with a hound of 9lb. Credit to Chris, who fought through some serious sea sickness to continue fishing and take the prize that day. As always big thanks to our sponsors at Pure Fishing UK Ltd for […]

Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day two

Me and my big mouth in closing after day one looking forward to better weather for day two in our competition . 17-20mph north winds not the best, but workable with a decreasing forecast.

Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day one

What a day Monday was! Strong winds in the morning that gradually abated into the afternoon. Sadly the heavens then opened and a few hrs of torrential downpour tested everyone’s patience. The hounds never read the script either, really heavy going considering the good smoothie fishing we’ve enjoyed lately. Only 10 hounds boated today despite some courageous efforts, the majority around 6lb with the only double a 10lb 10oz specimen for St Helens angler Dennis, winning him a brilliant new rod and reel combo from PENN, thanks to our sponsors Pure Fishing UK Ltd. Looking forward to better weather and […]
