Weather & Lunar Check

Perfect planning prevents poor performance ...

Weather systems and lunar phases have been studied for many hundreds of years for a number of purposes. For reasons of food production to event organisation and even scientific study of planets, flora and fauna, there can be no doubt that such conditions have a direct impact on many parts of our daily life.

Weather forecast service

Weather is often the most obvious factor to take into consideration, with comfort, duration of session, likelihood of success and the tackle you carry being dependent on the weather forecast.

To get the very latest weather conditions use the detailed link below. This will take you directly through to the excellent 'met-check' site which can give you accurate projections of:

01. Weather
02. Rainfall
03. Wind direction
04. Wind speed
05. U.V. index
06. Cloud cover
07. Barometric pressure
08. Barometric pressure trend
09. Sunrise time
10. Sunset time

This site will also give you an indication of whether they think your chance of a result is poor, average or good, and the likelihood of fish travelling the upper layers of the water or nearer the bottom in the projected conditions.

Don't forget to consider using the devastating zig-rig in winter- contact us for hookbait ideas.

Lunar phase calendar service

Lunar phases and their impact on our fishing have been studied much more closely in recent years and have been something of an eye-opener to many successful anglers in the U.K. and Europe. Whether the phase, levels of moonlight or other factors are the reason for success or failure, there has been significant evidence of patterns in the links between fish activity and the lunar phase at the time.

Check lunar calendar
If you keep records of dates of previous sessions, try seeing if the lunar phases of previous captures show any pattern that can lead you to any conclusion on their relevance.

Note: Log as many weather conditions and lunar phase details of your sessions as possible so that you can study patterns that may indicate common factors between groups of successful or unsuccessful sessions. The more details you log about your sessions, the better you will be prepared in the future.
