Sid Jones of Fishing Ireland passes his angling skills onto his young son Dan and reports:
On a recent trip on a friends boat I got the chance to try out a range of fishing tackle sponsored by Martin Kennedy and Shamrock fishing tackle.
We set off with Mackerel in mind first trying the Bulls Eye Rigs and my son Dan catching the first fish… then the second.. then the third Mackerel as Chris and myself looked on 3-0 TO Dan … Chris changed rigs to Shamrock Sabiki’s and I held out with the Bulls Eye’s we both landed a couple of Mackerel in quick succession on the next drift over a mark… Always great to see any youngster catching fish.

Well done Dan...

With a fill of Mackerel we decided to try for some Bass with the new  Blackrock Bass Attack lure rod and  Alcedo Hokkaido Bass lures.
The Hokkaido is a brilliant lure and has been a favourite of mine for a long time now coming in a range of different colours as for the rod … LOVE IT … 10 sic guides, comfortable handle, excellent reel seat, fabulous quality and looks the part too in black red whipping and silver, 8ft 10-50G loads of power, smooth as you like and light as feather with great action well able to put lures onto the Bass…..Super rod and great value…. The rods, lures and range of Shamrock rigs and tackle can be purchased from Colm Murphy Widgeon’s Rest.
Thank you to Martin Kennedy and Shamrock Fishing Tackle for sponsoring all the tackle used…….. and Rosslare after Colm Murphy Widgeons Rest Rosslare..
