Sea Angler (UK) - - TACKLE SEAANGLER -

■ NAME: Ge­orge Smith

■ HOME: Grimsby, North East Lincs

■ LAT­EST BUY: Tronix­pro Lead Bag

■ PRICE: £9.99

Ge­orge is one of the lead­ing shore match an­glers in the UK and com­petes reg­u­larly around the coun­try. His lat­est buy was bought at An­glers and Dan­glers Bait and Tackle shop in Grimsby.

“Rather than hav­ing nu­mer­ous lead weights rolling around in­side my tackle box, this is bril­liant for keep­ing them all in one place.” ■ NAME: Ian Bow­ell

■ HOME: Hol­brook, Suf­folk

■ LAT­EST BUY: Penn Fathom 12 mul­ti­plier

■ PRICE: £130

Match an­gler Ian has re­cently be­come the co-or­di­na­tor of the Sea An­glers Match Fed­er­a­tion match team. He bought his lat­est reel from Keen’s Tackle & Guns in Brid­gend.

“This reel is bril­liant be­cause it casts fault­lessly and is very tough when you need to pile a lit­tle ex­tra pres­sure on a fish. It’s even bet­ter be­cause it came al­ready equipped with a mag con­ver­sion.” ■ NAME: Tony Thomas

■ HOME: Sher­ing­ham, Nor­folk

■ LAT­EST BUY: Ka­masan B940M hooks

■ PRICE: £1.60

Tony does a lot of his shore fish­ing from the shin­gle of North Nor­folk, where flat­fish and whit­ing are his main species tar­gets.

His lat­est buy was pur­chased on­line.

“I’ve used Ka­masan hooks for many years and con­sider them to be the sharpest and most re­li­able. I pre­fer to use the match pat­tern in size 4.”

■ NAME: Robert Steb­bings

■ HOME: Alde­burgh, Suf­folk

■ LAT­EST BUY: Zzi­plex Pro­file GT

■ PRICE: £350

Robert com­petes reg­u­larly on his lo­cal match cir­cuit. His lat­est pur­chase was made on­line from Gerry’s Fish­ing based in More­cambe.

“I sim­ply love this rod be­cause it’s easy to use and cast. It sits per­fectly in the tide and the bite de­tec­tion is in­cred­i­bly good.”

■ NAME: Gary Hazel­grove

■ HOME: Brighton, East Sus­sex

■ LAT­EST BUY: Bass­boots chest waders

■ PRICE: £300

Gary is part of Team Frank, which com­petes in the SAMF Na­tional Teams of Five Sea League. He made his lat­est pur­chase on­line from Bass­boots.

“These waders are prob­a­bly the best I’ve ever owned. They are com­fort­able and su­per-tough and I’ve a feel­ing they will last me a very long time.”
