Ive just purchased a pair of Speleo Tecnics FX-ION lamps off Ebay for 56 quid...One has a single large LED which is incredibly bright (NOVA 3) and the other has 14 LED's plus Halogen....both superb and best part of 400 quid worth.


Ebay is the place to look.... :)

Actually the best way is to insert the hook at the tail and exit the head with nothing left dangling. There are 2 reasons for this.... 1. Fish generally take the worm head first and spit out the tail(which is normally full of sand) 2. Any bit dangling from the hook makes it very easy for fish to gra...

Buckle area is good for Plaice(my best of 4lb 8oz came from there :) ) but not until April/May.
You would be better off fishing about 400 yards west at Tidemills using White Rag, maddies and Razorfish for the Flounders at this time of year.
Personally i would rather go to Dungeness for some big Dabs.

I reckon it's not really worth fishing until we get a good south westerly blow now....if there's nothing being caught at Dungey then there's nothing anywhere. :(

You can't go far wrong with Daiwa Tournament mate and either Greased Weasel or Daiwa tapered leader.
