Remember it’s the massive ‘Fish Fest’ show this week-end in Hull hosted by Chapman’s Angling in Hull and what a show it looks to be. The list of names who will be attending and giving demonstrations etc is quite staggering (see below). This really looks like being ‘THE’ show of the North.
This long open week-end will be starting Friday 26th and will run during the shop hours through to Sunday 28th March 2010.
I will be there on the Saturday showing some of the Quest Baits range off and doing a couple of PVA demonstrations along with Archie Braddock showing how best to use his spice blend additives which we have recently re-launched. continue reading…
Angling started fairly long ago for me. As a child, I would follow my father every time he went tracking pikes by boat on French lake or when he went fishing roaches with live bait that smelt so lovely that it made you feel like tasting them. Being at the water’s edge makes me feel good and have a huge breath of air.
Then came that famous day on the river bank where we had settled for carp. There was a dazzling, start, a magnificent fight and, unfortunately, unhooking. This moment will be engraved in my memory for ever and that was the first of countless nights spent tracking Dame Carp on the water’s bank. I started on little brooks with superb fighting commons, then went on angling on great lakes and then on private lakes.
Today, I am 28 years and I am still looking forward to spending time at the water’s edge. Learning new techniques again and again, living new fishing situations. I am very proud of bringing my contribution to Quest Baits and being next to great anglers such as Shaun Harrison
See you soon at the water’s edge,
Well, the Chilli Chocolate boilies and pop-ups are now being packaged ready for the March 1st release date.
I must say this new bait seems to have come through at an alarming rate without the usual need of adding a bit, taking a bit away, juggling ingredients used etc.
There I was working on ‘Gurkha Spice’ when I stumbled across a couple of really interesting ingredients which weren’t particularly suitable for what I was working on at the time but it so happens I had another project on the go talking to a flavour company about producing something utilising a couple of ‘special ingredients’ I had requested. continue reading…
