Narc working with a range of partners developed tackle tips leaflets to assist anglers at hotspots where gear is commonly lost. We developed the approach to be more proactive in trying to minimise tackle loss after identifying these two sites as particular hotspots for angling litter. The tackle tips are also useful for many anging sites along rocky coastlines. We teamed up with the Welsh and Pembrokeshire Federation of Angling Coaches to provide the tips with NARC providing the maps and underwater descriptions.
Tackle tips for Stackpole
General tackle tips include information about keeping ledges and beaches clean, fishing at high water if possible and increasing speed when reeling in close to the shore.
More site specific tips include not fishing to the right of the ledges and the need to cast in excess of 50m to find a sandy bottom.
