Xlayer Ayu, fast becoming my favourite colour...

Popped out for an hour today and on my third cast had this nice 4lb 6oz. I was using a Megabass Xlayer Giant Ayu with a standard 3/0 leadhead. I am getting more confident with my soft plastics now, I am begining to feel the bottom as the lure touches it. Its a strange method to master (if you ever can!) but it is something new for me and its always good to have some other options when out there.

I had one on friday morning too, a bit smaller, about 3lb, that was on a Megabass Xlayer Original in Ayu.

And my mate Alex from London was over for the weekend on his stag party. He managed to wiggle out a bass on a Megabass Xlayer in White, a nice little scrapperof about 2lb which made the groom to be very happy.

These Xlayers are starting to do some damage, and on my new Tenryu Super Mix 240 they went very well indeed. The softer tip of the Super Mix is lovely when its bent double and the power in the butt section is amazing for stopping and turning the bass in their tracks.

I am looking forward to hooking a monster on it, in fact I cant wait to see what this little rod does in such a situation.
And Nelson was happy, his ship was in the harbour so he went aboard to check if all was ship shape.....


  1. Ayu is definetly my favourite colour mick, the others work but I have had most success on ayu or the smoke grey!

  2. Get your arse to Ireland and lets catch some fish for christ sake! Am seriously considering a spin over to see you lads during the ban! Flights are ridiculously cheap!

  3. Pat come over if you can mate, Bob and me would love to show you our play ground.
