Learn to (LRF) Light Rock Fish
LRF is an ultralight style of lure fishing. Line can be as light as around 2lb (with 5lb much safer to start with), rods rated up to 7 or 10 grams only, sometimes tiny hooks between sizes 12 and 2 and one to three-inch lures to match. At this scale every critter found around the jetties, harbours and rock outcrops puts up a good scrap. I’ve found a personal-species-hunt to be most enjoyable. A fun way to kill a couple of hours here and there.
While the thought of learning to lure fish might put you off, LRF is more akin to the kind of bait fishing you may have done as a kid – fishing small ragworm baits up and down harbour walls, perhaps. A tiny amount of movement in the lure is often enough to get instant results, especially in the crystal clear waters of Cornwall.
Our introduction to Light rock fishing is based over 3 progressive sessions some more technical than others either way its all about having fun and catching fish. You can join at any stage but for those with little experience we start with the basics before moving onto more technical areas like presentation and lure type. By the end of our LRF sessions we aim to give you a whole knew knowledge and to have fished some exciting Cornish marks.
Guided sessions are an invaluable and fun way to learn more about LRF / Light rock fishing ( use of soft lures and scaled down light weight tackle) and HRF / Hard rock fishing ( hard rock fishing – using hard lures). Ultimately it is all about putting the fun back into fishing and catching more fish.
There are many fishing marks all over Cornwall but realistically LRF is all about your water craft skills, technical knowledge and lure presentation, of course it does help if you fish in the right place but that is a bonus. Lure fishing is getting so advanced these days and crosses over between LRF and HRF both a sporting way to catch your targeted species.
We aim to introduce you to Lure fishing gear, Braids, fluorocarbons, mono and clips · Line loading · Unique fluorocarbon and mono knots for braid · Lures fishing and rigging · Lure choice and type · Surface lure fishing · Sub surface lure fishing · Soft baits · Metal baits. Our guided sessions will cover these areas, introduce you to some of the newer artificial products out there and of course aims to get you catching more fish in a really fun way.
When you guys are out and about it is so important to risk assess where you are going to fish as for sure will save your arse at some point. As part of your Day 1 session we will cover the four areas
H – Hazards
E – Environment
S – Surface
3 – Third party
This is an immense knowledge that is key to angling success and covers many topics. What we aim to do is pass on the basic understanding of where and how to catch fish using different lure types and presentation methods.
