A bit of lbf at Moreton

Postby iank » Thu Jun 08, 2017 1:48 pm

I had to go to Moreton this morning so I thought I'd do a bit of lbf (light beach fishing) to make use of the journey and petrol. In line with light fishing I also decided to travel as light as possible and got the telescopic rod out again. Initially I thought I'd have a walk to dovepoint and fish an area that I've not fished for over 30 years but laziness and ready made rod rests with seats won the day......

I got there just before high and it was a bit cloudy over towards Liverpool...

Image

Over slack water it was quiet but as the ebb started so did the bites......

Image

Image

Not bad Flounders. I didn't have scales with me but I'd guess about. 1 1/2lb which on light gear provided some good fun and pulled the rod down at times....

and a surprise guest....

Not bad fishing from a local easy access place. As I was just messing about I tried a home made urfe clip on 14lb mainline and 10lb fluorocarbon hook lengths with size 4 hooks and 2oz lead. The light gear/ rod / reel provided some good sport and I reckon it's got to be worth a try.

The bites were steady but as it was past my lunchtime the lure of a bacon butty or something similair had the strongest calling, I will however, be coming back to give it a try at some different stages of the tide.

Making the most of your trip (and petrol) with some decent Flounder.

That's the way to go Ian :thumbsup:
fished Formby last week using a spinning rod, 10lb line, 1.5 oz lead, a few flatties like yourself and a couple of small silvers.....so easy, and great sport :dance:

Good job Ian, could you please shed some light on what sort of rod is this telescopic one you used? I'm in Malaysia right now, my wife didn't let me bring my trusty Penn Overseas but promised that I can buy stuff there and store them at her parents house so whenever we come back for a holiday I could use that :) Cheers!

Hi Szabs

The telescopic rods are a funny thing, they have never really caught on in the uk but they are used extensively in some other countries. The one I'm using is a Kali Kunnan, a Spanish make that I bought in Fuerteventura, it's about 4m long and is supposed to cast over 100g but I tend to use it with 2oz (50g ish) as It's quite a soft rod with a through action. It also folds small enough to go in a suitcase.

Some of the Spanish and Italian companies do some great rods, I had a look at one of Tony Parry's off Jensen, I think it was made by artico, a telescopic boat rod that could be used with up to 250g, at two different lengths, that looks a cracker but I think they do other versions and I think he will be selling them. Another place that does telescopic and I've bought three from there is decathlon but the stock changes and we don't have one near us. I did buy one when I was last there, a small telescopic spinning rod and I've already had plenty of fish on it.The other two are 4 and 5m parabolic float rods, I have had a mullet on the smaller and it was great fun. I haven't used the 5m one yet and it was possibly a mistake as I bought it online then couldn't be bothered with the hassle of returning it when it wasn't quite what I thought but I intend to have a go for some bream and gar with it in the summer.

Hope that helps a bit and if you find anything let me know as its my little bee in the bonnet at present.

Hello Ian,

Cheers for the info, very helpful! I'm going to this place next week: www.tcetackles.com.my They do have the rods shown online but not the price... I'll have a look and let you know what I've found!

Some new names for me there but it looks interesting Szabs. I must admit when I go on holiday abroad I can spend far too long just looking at the different gear.

It's daft really as the big manufacturers do these telescopic rods for other markets but not ours. I remember in the early days of coarse pole fishing getting quite a bit of gear in France that just wasn't available here but I suppose it all adds to the holiday enjoyment.
