Quote from Chippy - Bite Adventures - Lethal Variado

Chippy, the premier shark boat captain in the UK, has been testing out the new Lethal Variado rods on his Fin Nor sponsored charter boat “Bite Adventures”.

Awesome rod guys.” Fulsome praise from Chippy for our new rods featuring solid carbon technology – as we say “Indestructible. Reinvented” Being afloat more than 200 days a year, and this summer boating more than 1500 sharks you can imagine how much abuse the Fin Nor products...

Monster catfish defeated at a water temperature of 8 degrees

Tostedt. At the beginning of March, angling guide and Black Cat brand manager Stefan Seuß headed to the Po along with tour guests Ludwig and Max Heller.

At this time, Stefan Seuß likes to use small sub floats (10-gram Black Cat underwater float), which he mounts directly behind the baitfish on the leader. This causes the bait to hover just off the bottom, precisely where most of the prey of catfish...
