In recent years the UK lure angling scene has seen an explosion in popularity of the lighter spinning styles and it is impossible to pick up a fishing magazine without reading the words dropshot, soft plastic or LRF. While these techniques are hugely effective they can also be very confusing and require particularly specialist kit. With these styles lending themselves to short sessions before or after work or even on a lunch break, and there being so many miles of canal all over the UK, modern light lure fishing can fit perfectly in to any lifestyle and can provide the ideal escape from real life for a few hours. Don’t be fooled by the light kit though – it is possible to catch large pike, zander and perch on the softest of the modern rods and the most delicate lines. ABAS offers two different lengths of session for the angler looking to learn more about fishing these techniques.

3 Hour Sessions

Great for squeezing in around work or for younger kids, during our three hour session we take a detailed look at the kit we tackle up with and explain how it works. We then fish two or three different techniques on the Midlands canals for pike, perch and zander. In these shorter sessions we can look at techniques such as jig fishing and dropshot presentations and discuss how and when each might be appropriate. ABAS provides all the kit needed for these sessions so all you need to bring is decent footwear, weather appropriate clothing and the desire to get put on the towpath and catch some fish!

Please note day tickey costs may apply to some waters.

5 Hour Sessions

For the angler looking for a more in depth view of modern lure fishing techniques. This longer session gives us the opportunity to look at each technique in far greater detail. If you want to know your wacky from your neko,  or learn more about when to Texas and when to Carolina then this is the session for you. Using multiple outfits through the course of the session you will learn more about feature finding on canals, which fish locate in which areas and the sort of baits to present in different scenarios. ABAS will provide all the necessary and specialist kit for these adventures.

Please note day ticket costs may apply to some waters.
