Thanks for that strathy,

Can I ask, out of curiosity really, how long it remains solid enough to withstand casting with?

it breaks up the longer it's been in the water is that right?

Cheers for the nfo lads,
Tbh I don't think it'd have found it's way on to my hook, it strikes me as one of those products they'd lap up in the US (no disrespect to any Americans!)?

maybe they should stick to making line etc :(

Hi there Steve, Thanks for the reply, much appreciated mate :) I must admit to having had reservations about the "strong scent trail" they are advertised as giving off /:) , as you have just confirmed. I don't mind paying for peeler providing it's decent and fresh. I'm sure I have link for a source ...

Berkley Gulp??

Hi there, I wondered if anyone has used any of the Berkley Gulp artificial baits at all or has any experience of them in use? Unfotunately, most of the peeler crab I see are bought ones & it soon mounts up if buying a load of bait for a weekends fishing, harbour rag and/or lugworm are much easier fo...

Hi pter , Much obliged for that link buddy, it is a wee bit more hassle to get to but looks well worth it as you say. Going by the pics of the place on their website it seem to be massive!. From where I am in East Lothian, Glasgow is roughly 1.5hrs?, maybe a wee bit more. We are planning a trip thro...

Decent Tackle Shops in Edinburgh & Lothians Area?

Hi there, I've re-found this wonderful hobby after at least 15yrs through a friend who has just gotten into sea fishing coming from a fly fishing background and wondered what/where there are any good tackle shops?. Is Mike's Tackle in Portobello still open yes?, if I remember he had a large selectio...

Hi there, I can't quite speak from experience regarding shore stuff on the Fife side but I've fished the Forth from a boat plenty. There is a good mark directly out about 1/2 a mile from Granton, it's supposed to be a hole/ledge?....the best way to find it from your side might be to line yourself up...
