READY TO FISH - MACKEREL
Fairwater Fishing started off supplying heavy monofilament mackerel sets to local Hook & Line boats.
Years later, we still have our grass roots customers, and we are sending more & more top quality ready to fish mackerel sets to commercial fishermen all over the UK, Ireland, France, Netherlands, Iceland, Norway – even as far away as the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
All the ready to fish mackerel sets we supply are made by skilled tiers here at Fairwater using best quality materials and methods that are time tested and proven.
This ensures a neat finish and gear that fishes well and also stands up to the extreme stresses and strains associated with commercial hook and line fishing.
We are able to supply a range of ready to fish sets of hooks suitable for all fishermen from those hand lining with ultra fine gear to those fishing with jigging machines or a powered gurdy.
All our gear is made up with separate snoods tied to a mainline. We supply different line strengths to suit different fishing applications. If you are not sure which is best for you then send us an email & we will get back to you.
1 ) Standard Fry.
The Fairwater Standard Fry has proved to be an exceptional fish catcher and so has been a popular choice for many fishermen using lighter gear.
The combination of Silver Mylar and Metallic Braid makes these one of the best synthetic fry imitations available; and the very best available to commercial fishermen today.
As an effective fry imitation, Mackerel find them irresistible.
We have also had some fine catches of Bass and Pollack using these hooks.
Fairwater Standard Fry are tied using size 10 VMC 9746 hooks
To each hook is tied with Mylar and Metallic braid and fitted with a short length of PVC tube.

2 ) Small Fry
The Fairwater Small Fry has revolutionised summer mackerel fishing for many local fishermen.    
In still, calm and clear conditions the Small Fry will frequently catch fish when nothing else will.  
Small Fry use the same materials as Standard Fry tied onto smaller size 12 VMC 9754 hooks.
Sets of Fairwater Small Fry are best used in shallower waters; when fishing is hard going they will frequently out fish all other gear.

3 ) Fairwater Range

We have updated our range of Ready to Fish Mackerel traces to include some heavier options

The Metal Head is a new way of making Mackerel traces that we have spent a couple of years developing with trials aboard our own boat and with help and feedback from fishermen all over the UK, Ireland and as far afield as the USA.

The concept allows us to make Mackerel traces with a single snood that are incredibly strong but will still out fish most sets of traditional gear tied with Norwegian loops when the fish are not feeding hard and fishing becomes scratchy.

The Metal Head provides a very neat and secure connection that is virtually failsafe and it also has the added bonus of adding attraction to the hook.

The hook and line Mackerel fishery here off the South Cornish coast can be unpredictable and hard going at times so it was important for us to develop Mackerel traces that were consistent and reliably strong to last when used with jigging machines yet made neatly, with enough finesse that they will still catch well on the majority of days here when fish are not suicidal.

These traces are designed and assembled “in house” by us.
They are unique to Fairwater Fishing.
Each hook is dressed with brightly covered PVC tube and 4 strands of ribbon in the tail as well as the Metal Head.
The hooks are extra strong and we only use top quality clear monofilament line.

Our Metal Head traces are suitable for use with heavy hand winding set ups, powered Gurdy and Jigging machines.
Available in sets of 10, 15, 20 hooks, 25 hooks and 30 hooks.
Each set has a loop at the top for fast and secure connection and short sets can be easily joined together to make longer traces.

Until we are able to build up stocks there might be a delay up to 2 weeks after order confirmation although we will try and complete and ship orders as soon as possible within that time.
We will advise of any expected delays as soon as we receive order confirmation.
