Cool Turkey! on a Gataride

At 4000m the snow and sub zero Temperatures were blasting the Toros Mountains on west seaboard of Turkey ,a wild country this certainly is with the pine forests and deep blue lagoons truly a gem of our earth and the people are so welcoming and traditional ,,,

Packing my anyfish anywhere 8 ft travel rod and all the usual suspects Carol ,Arron and Myself set off to the shores of this wonderfull enchanting Country Gateway to the East ,, 
The Gataride Edomi Lazer was the lure of the moment on this trip the Gataride just seems to do the buisness anywhere in the world the perfect Lure get them here at topwater lures 

Heres Umut Beckar with a double figure Amberjack nailed on a Megabass Gataride,, My guide on the last part of our trip catch up with him here he will sort you out accomodation and some of the best fishing plugging marks in Europe,,
The Gataride will get them any where heres one of my Jacks pushing double figure These fish are mental and what a srap ,the AFAW Plugger 8ft travel just handled the Fish Brilliant even when the lure slipped into  the Back of the fish the rod handled  Amberjack with relative ease a superb travel rod by Anyfish ,,,
my advice if you do any amount of travel go and get one of these little crackers,,,have a look at Veals
The small Barracuda loved the Gataride too, great sport and verocious preditor

To Sum this trip up all i can say it was Fantastic with some stunning Fish an all round Place for serious Pluggers,,,,,
I Have just touched the surface of this Magical country with some of the best lure fishing in the world no less than 4 hours away and with people like Umut around to show you the way forward and make your trip very special and memorable find him here ,,,,,The Bass are around in the winter months up to 5kg been Common sadly we were a little late but hey,,,
Those Amberjack Realy pull your string!!!!!!!!!!!! ,,,
