  • 5-star Andy Collings (06/05/2015)

    Great days fishing Colin. Three Spurdog pb's in succession topped by one of 20lb's. Wonderful. Of course the banter was of it;s usual high quality.

  • 5-star John Billett (05/04/2015)

    Colin, just a quick review to say thanks for the fantastic trip on Easter Sunday, got to be the best wrecking trip I have ever been on, beating my ling PB three times on a cutbait herring was the icing on the cake. For anyone reading this I would highly recommend Colin as a skipper he’s always friendly whether newcomer or regular and he will always do his best to put you onto fish. This last trip was a fine example, plenty of pollack and a couple of ling on lures from the first wreck, a couple of fishless drifts and we were off to another wreck for a repeat of the first. Fishing slowed again and Colin decided to revisit the first wreck again as the tide was dropping and there would be an opportunity to fish for ling. Well a few drifts to locate the fish and then it was back to the hotspot every time with fish caught or lost on most drifts. Couple the action with the brilliant weather and you get the stuff that memories are made of….. and if your memory is as poor as mine there are always the photographs that Colin sends you as a reminder.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for review John. It was a pleasure as always to have you on board Flamer IV.

  • 5-star Terence Groves (04/08/2014)

    This was my first trip with Colin on the Flamer i have fished with other boats at Weymouth but this trip was for big Plaice something i hadnt done before i saw the trip on Flamer4fishing website well worth looking at it if you thinking of a fishing trip from Weymouth,from booking the boat to the advice given i could not fault Colin he was very helpful in every way the trip was fantastic plenty of big plaice which we had targeted & the the whole experiance 1st class will be looking at some trips for next year as i couldnt fault the trip we had .

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Terrance(Terry) and I look forward to seeing you on Flamer IV again.

  • 5-star Trevor Pegg (19/05/2014)

    FLAMER 1V 5 DAY ANGLING BREAK. The opportunity to fish 5 straight days on Flamer 1V is not one to be missed. It affords last minute decisions to be made as the weather changes and we took the the rare chance to fish for several for seveal species from pollack on live sand eel to black sea bream, where the fishing was electric on light gear. The minute you step on board you know where you are with Colin, he just never stops working to find fish for his crew. At the end of the day, rather than a long drive home, a 5 minute walk to a B&B has to be the icing on the cake. Then in the evening the social side and the chance to relax in good company is a bonus as is eating in Colin,s favourite chinese restaurant with its "special puddings". A great week,s fishing with good company and an excellent skipper. Thanks Colin.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Trevor, I am glad you enjoyed the trip and I am looking forward to seeing you and the boys on the 2015 Angling Break that is already planned and booked.

  • 5-star keith butwell (15/05/2014)

    Nick and I would like to thank you for a couple of cracking days fishing. Between us we managed to catch Cod, Pollock, Ling, Bass, Undulate rays, Small eyed ray, Blonde ray, Bullhuss, Turbot and good few Doggies. Top skipper who knows his stuff and we both look forward to going out with you again

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Keith it was a pleasure to have you and Nick on Flamer IV catching fish and the banter was great as well.
