After listening to valuable feedback from guests over 2018, and after some careful planning over the winter I am happy to announce the new "Back to the land" - "Back to the sea" and "Back to the woodland" foraging and food experiences.
I closed my old website down a little while ago now, and I had saved all my previous blog posts with the idea of adding them to my latest website for more content and a nostalgic look at times past.
I will be adding these blog posts thorughout the next few weeks.
Its nice for me to look back on how far I have actually come since I started Fishng and foraging Wales almost seven years ago now.
Well it was a slow start for me at the beginning of the season, but things are really coming good now on the bass fishing front.
Early May saw warmer days but very cold nights which has affected everything across the board. The bass metabolism really starts to kick in at around 12oc and the water was slow to come to this much needed temperature.
Cold nights and days have also stalled the plant growth, and in turn of course the foraging season. The elderflower has been a bit late here, which I normally use as a litmus for the better numbers of bass to come along. The swallows were also very late this year and nesting birds are also very late too. Things are warming up nicely now though with the high early summer temperatures hitting the highs.
Myself and my clients have been hooking into a good stamp of fish and this is very pleasing for me. It also keeps people wanting to return and my...
This offer has been a long time coming and something I have wanted to run for a while it’s just been a case of finding the time and the right moment.
To celebrate the recent re-branding of the business and the release of the new website and logo I am offering a 10% discount on bass fishing bookings made before the end of June.
The summer months are the best times to come and join me here on the wild Pembrokeshire coast. This is when the sand eels hatch in big numbers, bass come in close to feed on crabs and other crustaceans and will be chasing other bait fish.
All you have to do is sign up to my emailing list which can be found on my blog here https://www.welshbassguide.co.uk/blog .Sign up with your email on the right and press "Subscribe Now"
The discount will apply to anyone signing up to the list and it can be used for two...
Well it has been an exceptionally busy start to the year for me.
I have had numerous successful restaurnt pop ups in various locations and also the foraging and food days have been busy too.
The early spring has been a pretty cold one and as every year I always look forward to the arrival of the best edible fungi available to us the Morel (Morchella esculenta - - Morchella deliciosa)
I was a little worried this year that I wouldn't find any morels because of the cold weather, but there have actually been a few about. I had repeat clients from L.A this year, and it was great to get them onto some wonderful springtime fungi hunting.
Last year the morels were very hard to come by but this year when I have had time to look I have found quite a few.
If you do want to join me next year to get out to find these most incredible fungi then feel free to book in when you can.
Leila and Anthony joined me last year whilst on their travels around Wales, they were extremely down to earth and just really lovely people.
So here is the video, please do have a watch and if you are on the social media channels then please like and share it etc. We all worked hard to get this amazing work across.
I was to say the least overwhelmed by what the recipe hunters achieved whilst they were in Wales and what they achieved with me. I really love the video and it gets across my ethics and my beliefs over extremely well?
I hope you enjoy the video and you have all had a lovely Easter as well.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you are looking to join me again this year. Or of course if you are...
So with cabin fever well and truly set in and the anticipation of the new season to come I thought it was about time for me to get a fishing blog post up.
I have for while now wanted to share more information about some of the tactics and lures I use out here on the Welsh coast for my bass lure angling.
On this new blog site when I can I will be giving away honest, and I hope engaging information for fellow lure anglers. I hope it will not just work here in Wales but across the United kingdom and hopefully further afield.
So here goes....
Starting at the beginning
Sorry about not smiling in the above photo, but it's always a shock and a very adrenaline fueled time when you hook, play and land big bass on lures.
For hard lure fishing
I prefer to give the sea in my area the time to warm up before I start using hard lures on a more regular basis. I love using the mainstay of the hard lures I...
