I’ve been in the market for a new waterproof jacket for a while now. It’s a really big decision, and I’ve done a lot of research and thinking about which one to get. I was after something that was super waterproof and breathable but also looked great, was thin, lightweight and would hold up against extreme elements. Not all of these qualities are easy to find in one jacket. After much searching, I managed to find a jacket that…

    Often on our weekends and especially over Christmas, my girlfriend and I go away from home to visit our family and friends around the country, sometimes away for a few days at a time. Over the last few months, we’ve been all over the South West, to Bristol, Torbay, Exeter, Plymouth and Bath. I recently got this Leather Travel Bag by Fur, Feather and Fin, I really like it and thought I’d take some time to review it…

  Last weekend wasn’t anywhere near as sunny and hot as the last weekend has been, it was a bit cloudy and overcast but looked like a really great weekend for some fishing. We decided to go for a fishing double bill and fly fish during the morning and hit the coast for some bass action in the afternoon. I’d just bought a few pairs of Bonsai Bamboo Socks. I’m not entirely certain about how they make bamboo into fabric…

  I’ve got this new zipped Weird Fish Hoody which is the softest item of clothing I’ve ever owned. As I’ve already mentioned, more than once, Weird Fish are kings of the comfy hoody. This is the third one of their hoodies and it’s probably my favourite. It’s got a classic look but what really stands this hoody apart from every other hoody I’ve owned is its lining which is brushed to give it a very, very soft feel. The…

  To be honest I hadn’t heard of Mount Edgcumbe before last weekend. I cant imagine why as it’s a fantastic, gorgeous place to visit. Mount Edgcumbe is a stately home and gardens in Cornwall, overlooking Plymouth Sound. Although it’s in Cornwall I actually visited it from North of the border: Plymouth. Right next to the up-market Royal William Yard, there is an awesome little ferry boat which travels between the Docks and Mount Edgcumbe every 15 mintues. It costs…

  So far there hasn’t been much snow down here in Cornwall, the odd quickly melting flake but nothing substantial. So the weekend just passed we went to Dartmoor in search of snow. With no particular destination in mind we drove off into the tundra, travelling past Princetown, past Two Bridges until we found a little carpark next to Cherry Brook. We had seen an exciting looking forest and Tor in the distance. This Tor turned out to be Bellever…

  Kennal Vale is a gorgeous piece of Cornish woodland made even better by a dramatic river running through and deep undergrowth. Throughout the reserve the remains of a granite gunpowder mill can be seen, scattered along the wooded slopes. It’s a really fantastic place to go for a wander and to take some photos, so much so that most of the people that you see at Kennal Vale either have a camera or a dog. On a particularly cold…

  This weekend my friend and I decided to go on a bit of a road trip over to the Roseland Peninsula. We didn’t know where exactly we were going but we were in search of a new and successful bass fishing location. With rods, lures and a trusty map packed, we set off. We decided to take the short cut and go via the legendary King Harry Ferry, cutting out about 20 miles of faffing about through Truro. I…

  One of the perks of running a site like Wild Tide is getting invited to cool events and shindigs. I’m not always able to attend them but when I was asked to the launch party of the new Stable restaurant in Falmouth, I couldn’t say no. I’d been to their last opening event at Fistral Beach in Newquay, which was great, but the Falmouth opening was even better (and not just because of the free bar) The photograph below…
