Just a few lines to introduce a new face to the Team Enterprise. We welcome Ray Best who is to provide further support to our development team. An angler for over 40 years and adept in all aspects of coarse fishing, Ray will be providing his long term experiences with catching a wide range of species on a wide range of baits.
Enterprise welcome the guys from Fish East Asia to the Consultants Team and to bring a new dimension to the use for our Imitation Baits for the more exotic species found in the lakes, rivers of the the Asian continent.
They catch some pretty astounding species at weights we can only imagine, and hopefully we can learn from their experience whilst they benefit from the quality of the original imitations we pioneered.
Hopefully they can contribute to what gets caught on our imitations in their trips and that these will both entertain our visitors and perhaps inspire you to think about what they offer.
You can read more about the team in Meet Our Consultants page.
Been a reasonable winter catching a variety of species from a mix of still water and river venues.
Small 5lb carp I had a few weekends ago on a frozen lake as the river was unfortunately flooded.
A 7lb river carp caught from the river Mole on the a bollie tipped off with a medium and a small price of Pop Up Corn on a normal braided hook link with a size 6 hook ( Fang Twister) with silicon on the bend of the hook.
Perch were high on the agenda this month and I soon had the kit loaded in the van and was the long drive. Arriving at dawn I had a good look around to familiarise myself with the venue before settling into a peg with an inviting snaggy margin to my right. I was soon using my trusty homemade bait dropper to introduce a mixture of red maggots, chopped worms and diced prawn accurately onto the deeper marginal shelf.
This autumn I have been bang into my barbel fishing. After gaining a ticket to a rather special stretch of a Thames Tributary, I decided to dedicate a fair amount of my time trying to track down and catch some of its big, yet nomadic residents. I have fished some hard and low stock section of the river in the past, however this venue has to be right up there with the trickiest stretch I have fished to date. As I touched on, the fish are nomadic, often travelling several miles between captures and combine this with a low stock of big fish, you can begin to understand the appeal. .
Enterprise Tackle celebrates 15 years of imitation bait this year – having produced more than 20 million pieces of fake sweetcorn!
The Beds-based outfit, the brainchild of keen angler Chris Hornsby, has firmly established itself as the market-leader when it comes to plastic baits, largely thanks to an unerring attention to detail.
Now used by some of the UK’s leading anglers, including carp legend Frank Warwick and all-rounder Alan Stagg, Enterprise products have been responsible for FOUR record fish, along with countless other specimen fish every season.
