SNP 3000 Okuma Safina Pro Fishing Reel Review I have been a heavy casting and jigging enthusiast for over 20 years. In 2013 when I first tried Light Rock Fishing properly, I fell in love with everything about it. Since then I started to change my entire fishing gear collection. Now I own more LRF stuff than all those guys who introduced me to this crazy addiction. I was looking for a new super lightweight spinning reel for my canal fishing in England adventures. But it has to be perfect for catch and release fun in saltwater as well, because I travel to Mediterranean countries so often and I love fishing there. So I decided to have a quick look at some cheap reels but I didn't feel that passion to be honest. And I made a sharp u return to Okuma and Daiwa reels, which always make me come back to them.

Once you are in Sardinia, Italy you will catch lots and lots of fish. Almost every corner of the island is perfect for fishing. From LRF to big game fishing, there is so much fun and adventure for everyone. Jogging and shore fishing are very popular as much as Sardinia fishing trips for bluefin tuna.  But you have to follow the rules, if you are going to fish in the national parks in the north west and north east of the island, where the marine reserves are protected very well.  Rocky shores, sandy beaches, shallow waters, deep blue cliffs.. You will definitely have the best times of your life while fishing in Sardinia. And like in everywhere else, there are some special seasons for target fishes, if you are after a specific species.  Sardinia Fishing Season The best time to go

Some Plastics Never Go

Image
If one plastic bottle made it into the sea, How long would it take to fully decompose? Last week I visited Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, Cornwall. A perfect aquarium to see interesting fishes and aqua creatures, and even a huge loggerhead sea turtle, which was blind when they found it in Greece. I saw this information board on the wall about plastics. I think this should be seen by more and more people. Especially by the children in every corner of the world. As it says on it, "some plastics never go". Absolutely true. So, please share this on your social media, show it to your kids and friends. It's really important.  Let's see what happens when we throw plastics and similar rubbish into the nature and the sea. Plastic Cutlery 100-1000 years Plastic Bags 10-20 years Plastic Bottles 450 years Drinking Cans 200 years Cigarettes 10 years Cardboard 2 months Toilet Roll 1 month Glass 4000 years Nappies 450 years Fish Hooks 600 years
