Here’s a different way to rig a Ghost rig that I’ve found especially successful for both shore and boat fishing!
In this feature I look at how to use spreader bars, how to construct your own and the species you’re most likely to catch when using them.
In my last blog I wrote about how I fulfilled a long held ambition of mine to catch a blue shark on the fly. In this feature I take a look at the end tackle I used to do just that.
It’s pretty obvious that some baits will wash out their scent faster than others after casting out. As a consequence, the more experienced anglers are constantly monitoring the time their baits are left in the water.
One of the best tools an angler can buy is a barometer. It does not need to be anything fancy or expensive, just a serviceable clock type barometer. These need to be positioned though, on an internal outside facing wall to get accurate readings. Some of the new “weather stations” available are also good.
