The Latest News from Hardy & Greys
A round-up of all the tackle news and catch reports from Hardy & Greys - some of the photos are great!
The Greys Prowla rods have caused a stir on a recent fishing trip by Greys Consultant, John Horsey and Category Product Manager, Andy Charlton.
Two days fishing for Pike during the Trials at Chew Valley on the 28th and 29th October saw the two anglers land 21 fish between them, including a 33lb 8oz Pike.
Fishing lures using Greys Prowla Jerk Bait rods, and dead baits using Prowla Bait & Boat rods, John’s big fish fell to a smelt mounted on a Prowla size 6 Supa Snap Tackle, float legered under a Prowla Bait Slider and Quick Change In-line Sinker.
The fish initially dropped the bait after running a few yards with it, but then picked it up again after John carefully gave it a couple of twitches. It was landed on a Prowla 10’6” 3lb TC Boat rod and was netted by John’s boat partner, Andy Charlton.
Andy said “John and I landed fish steadily over the first afternoon after switching to dead baits following a morning of fishing lures. When the big girl was first hooked we both thought it to be a lower double until it’s back broke the surface and all hell broke loose! There were a couple of hairy moments at the boat but we eventually slipped the net under her. What an amazing fish and a superb 2 days Pike fishing.”
Over £6000 Raised at Fish with the Stars
Over £6,000 was raised at the ‘Fish with the Stars’ Celebrity Charity event organised by Hardy & Greys Ltd and Game Fishing Supplies of Morpeth.
A cheque was presented to Karen Larkin from the charity, Grace House North East Children’s Hospice Appeal by Hardy & Greys Ltd and Game Fishing Supplies.
The Fly Fishing event, which was held in at Sweethope Lough in June saw anglers from across the UK pay to fish with one of seven celebrities, including rugby players, Jamie Noon, Raphael Ibanez and Jason Oakes, and television actors, Sean Wilson and Dean Andrews.
Karen Larkin said “We had a brilliant day and the feedback we have received has been fantastic. I am extremely grateful to Hardy & Greys Ltd and Game Fishing Supplies for organising the event and of course to the people who attended the day and supported Grace House North East Children’s Hospice Appeal.”
Hardy & Greys Ltd, Managing Director, Richard Sanderson said “As a company we are proud to be able to help and support a charity as worthwhile as Grace House North East.

Monster Cod Caught on Greys Excursion
A 56lb Cod has been caught using a Greys Excursion Boat Rod.
The Cod was caught by Anthony Bell from Northumberland on a fishing trip to Norway with his brother, Darran Bell.
Using the Greys 8” 30-50lb Excursion Boat rod and Norwegian Pirk as bait, Anthony said “The rod performed to perfection. I have never seen a fish that big in my life and the Greys Excursion did not let me down. This trip was one of a lifetime and was rounded up by the catch of a lifetime.”
