    Tested: Hyped by the TD Hyper range

    0 190

    Although I simply love fishing, I have to admit that I have become a little obsessed by the humble flathead. I blame the team here at Fishing Monthly when I arrived. They caught a lot of them and it was pretty tough not to get involved when most trips involved being connected to lots of…

    Viva Mighty Midget rod stand

    The Mighty Midget is an entirely new concept in rod stands. The ‘trick’ with this unit is that it sits below knee height.
