#TBT – Not a happy bunny…

An interview with Abbey Anderson

Young Abbey Anderson of Team Pallatrax is without a doubt one of the new generation of anglers that we should all be looking out for. In common with the likes of Carl & Alex Smith and Alfie Russel, her focus is on her fishing, rather than any notion of fame and fortune, and we love that she’s obviously got a good head on her shoulders. Look out for more news of Abbey soon on the Crabtree website… […]

An interview with Gavin Hewitt

Gavin Hewitt is, amongst other things, a Man U fan, member of  Team Pallatrax and a father of three – and he still manages to get out on the bank. We caught up with him and managed to grab a quick interview. Here’s what he had to say…
How often do you fish and what do you fish for?

Q: How often do you fish and what do you fish for?
I try and fish once a week and mix it up to keep things interesting. For instance, the week before last I was trotting with my favourite centre pin on the Wye for barbel and chub. Last week I was 30 miles off the Welsh coast fly fishing for blue and porbeagle sharks. I have always been an all-rounder but have had the odd obsession over the years – pike and salmon are two good examples. I strongly urge newcomers to the sport not to limit themselves to just one type of fishing – get out there and experience the lot! […]
