Expert reviews on fishing tackle, rods & reels

Welcome! I'm Jason Sawyer (AKA Species Hunter). A devoted fisherman and member at the local Christchurch angling club in Dorset. I won the Royalty record for common carp and recently completed the 100 fish species challenge, where I travelled all over the UK hunting down rare species of fish with my best mate John.

On this website, you can expect to find all my top fishing secrets, including the best fishing gear and tackle I used along with the best fishing brands, locations, and pro fishing tips for landing any fish species.
