THE July issue of Fishing World magazine is out now and brimming with great winter fishing reading.
This month's cover story by keen snapper man Dave Rae, outlines the great results he's had since rediscovering the deadly bait fishing techniques he used to employ, before becoming addicted to reddies-on-soft-plastics fishing! Incorporating some of the old with the new has certainly opened up some exciting possibilities for Dave and can do the same for you - essential reading for all keen snapper fishos out there.
Flathead are best caught in the summer months aren't they? Not according to Kevin Savvas, who's feature article on catching low temperature lizards is a revealing read that offers some great technqiues for keen lure fishers to experiment with over the cooler months of the year.
Kingfish are one of the most exciting tackle destroying pelagics around, and when they get to XOS sizes they pull like freight trains and test gear to the limit. In the July issue, Sami Omari visits a place where monster kings rule and any fish under 20kgs is a "tiddler". Reading this feature is enough to make any keen jig man pack the gear and book the next flight to big king central...
Also in July Fisho, barra gun David Green delves deep into his tackle box of tricks to come up with the ultimate guide to barra lures - a must for anyone planning a trip north, or for anyone lucky enough to already be up there!
And talking of product guides, this month we have an extensive buyer's guide on what's available in specialist squid fishing (egi fishing) rods.
For DIYers this month there's a practical feature on how to revitalise an old electric bow-mount motor, and a recipe for building your own rock and beach travel rod - courtesy of keen rock fisho Mark Williams.
Also this month you'll find regular columns from the three "Bs" - Bushy, Brennan and Butler, Finney's Q&A, Knots & Rigs with Williams (how to tie the Bimini Twist) and Greenie ponders on the future of fishing communication.
