Orangina

Who loves Orangina? Wild Tide loves Orangina! (well done if you got that reference) It’s pretty much soft drink perfection. Mmmm and that bottle has curves in all the right places….

My Top Festival Tips

After a few festivals i’ve got a few solid gold tips. It would be a crime not to shame them, so lets go, BOOM: Wet wipes are your god now – at the end of my first ever day at my first festival my friends and I were sitting around admiring our ‘tans’ then on closer inspection, we all realised, this wasn’t sun kissed skin, it was dust covered, dirtyness. Wet wipes are the quickest and easiest way to sort…

Swimming with Dolphins

Now I wished I owned one of those super cool waterproof sports cameras (I mean GoPro), but I DON’T. But I do love seeing videos by people who DO own them. Stunning shots of dolphins taken from behind a boat in Santa Cruz:

National Trust – Glendurgan

Savagear Sandeel a Tackle Box Must Have

These soft lures are deadly to all predatory fish. I often catch Bass and Pollock on them and even a John Dory earlier this year. They have a fantastic swimming action and come in two sizes 12.5cm/23g and 16cm/42g. I mainly use the small size which are great for spinning from the shore and the kayak, from the kayak they also work very well when trolling. The large ones can do all the same but are really good for vertical…
