im very pleased to be the first to report a catch for ireland putting us on the map at last.i nearly wasnt going to get up this morning the clock went off at 6 and i was thinking will i wont i but i got up and im glad i did.i got to my mark at 7.45 and was casting away an hour passed and my confidence was dropping rapidly and then bang.i have been waiting for that rush since last october and it was worth the wait.it was my first fish on the injection and it gave me a great fight im still buzzing.i took a quick pic on the camera i didnt mess around with the boga for a weight i just sent it back on its way for making my morning im going to have a full irsh breakfast to celebrate.

im very happy with the injection it felt really sensitive i could feel everything the rod was well bent over.i got it on a tackle house p-bot casting jig 25g.it casts like a bullet and i was getting great distance with it and just a slow retrieve and an odd pause.i was sh*tting myself i would loose the fish i was talking to it telling it please just let me land you and ill put you back all i wanted was a pic and it did.ill have to try for more of them now and see what happens?

Nice.

Really glad you like the fish playing action of the Injection. We sometimes are quick to forget that a rod not only has to deliver lures, be sensitive etc but..

play and land fish too whilst retaining bot pleasure and control.

I love mine.

Get out there and catch more, why are you at home when you have Sea Trout with open mouths
crying for food ?
