Skipper John Fleming likes to encourage his guests to fish as light as possible, to give the best sport. He has a number of great quality spinning rods available on board for lure fishing with metals and soft plastics which are proving very popular. And he says the weekend just gone proved their worth, with lure taking the best of the fish on a busy weekend that saw plenty coming aboard.

Skipper Julian Dosso on the Leaca Rua has also been busy, the suny weather and good fishing making for happy crews, like this one here.
