News coming in from our UK consultant Rik Johnson.
"A spur of the moment decision, proved to be the right call by Rik. With the weather still so inconsistent at the moment in the UK, Rik fished into the teeth of a Easterly wind at the shallow end of the lake knowing he only had a 12 hour window before the wind would completely swing around to South Westerly and the he would have to leave for family engagement, but also knowing the fish would follow the new wind to the opposite end of the lake.
Rik opted to use small PVA mesh bags of crushed Krusty Crab Boilies at the bottom of the near marginal shelf were he presented his snowman style combi rigs constructed from our Mimicry hook link and Desert Viper braid. Size 6 XC4 hooks made sure all 4 runs were converted into very hard fighting banked fish, before the elements completely changed again and the fish moved out".
"Do you know that feeling? When a trip to another country is coming close by. A country like France, Spain, Italy or even Serbia. A country where you can fish for carp as well.
Packing up all your gear, sorting everything out and daydreaming about what you will catch there. Well I do, and I can't wait to go. If you are going as well soon or have been on a trip recently and caught a nice one with the help of our products, then let us know and send in a picture with one or more of our products in it. For now, get your reels full with Mimicry line, a set of extra batteries for our bite-alarms, your Hexagon clothing on and enough of our tackle in your tacklebox. Go for it! Represent Prologic! Have some great summer sessions and catch some big ones".

|German Obesity |
Wow! Have a look at this pot-belly pig!
Our German Prologic consultant, Olli, caught this fish the other day while targeting one of his local venues. The take was very subtle, but once the fish was on - it chartered off like a freight-train.
Olli had to use all the muscle power in his Prologic C2 rod and Okuma Trio Rex reel to control the fish - and the Mimicry line was put to a serious test when keeping the fish free of all the snags in lake.
Way to go, Olli!

|MIMICRY 3D CAMO Water Gost XL proofs very well|
Really good feed back just received from our German consultant Bastian Reetz.
"After some busy weeks I started to fish and pre-bait a very heavily pressured syndicate lake right next to my new home. And I wanted fish different than all the others, so I fished very shallow right next to some bushes with slack lines. Mainline and rig (!) were made of the new 0,40mm MIMICRY 3D WATER GHOST and all fish were landed right next to the snags without a single hook pull because of its good abrasion resistance and the controlled stretch. One of the bigger commons, a fish which is not often caught, was the first fish I safely landed with this tactic. Hook choice as usual XC4 size 6, bait was BKS 24mm...Get out there, they are feeding at the moment."
|New Mimicry monofilament |
Our new Mimicry monofilament range have received the EFTTA award as "Best new monofilament line" during the last EFTTEX show in Bruxelles, an important award that proof the serious development we have done with this new and revolutionary product.
For the past two years Prologic have invested a lot of time and effort to bring you the unique Mimicry 3d camo technology . With the success of there already popular and award winning clothing range, we are now ready to take it to the next level, with our brand new revolutionary Mimicry 3d camo mono. A mononifilament which boasts, as with all Prologic lines, low diameter, high breaking strain and good abrasions resistance, but now incorporating our mimicry 3d camo technology.
A pattern which cannot be applied to your every day run of mill monofilament. So only a mono of the highest quality coopolymer is good enough to apply our new mimicry 3d concept .
With the mimicry pattern the lines the profile is totally absorbed into its surroundings and cloaked from the vision of any targeted fish. This can only be achieved by mixing four natural shades and colours and by being applied to the line in a totaly random manor, therefore fusing the natural light spectrum and eliminating the outline or presence, of an outside edge.
The evolution of the new mimicry camo range has begun taking you to the 3rd dimension.
To cover every fishing situation we have developed 3 different blends of mimicry 3d camo mainline, all of them with excellent breaking strength, sinking and reduced stretch
|Rik did it again !|
Rik did it again ! Once more top rod of the lake on his annual trip to Les Quis Complex in France. Here the nice message we have just received from Rik : "I Had a very tricky session last week at the Les Quis complex in France. Many more pictures to follow soon !
But what a way to finish testing on the new C2 Nature carp rods.
using the 12ft 3.5 version, you could say they got tested to the extreme.
having to cast .40 main lines to over 130 yrds to submerged snags and fish locked up Hit n Hold style. The rods performed fantastic they have a lovely crisp tip section to aid big casts but are also very forgiving under to tip when playing fish which helps reduce hook pulls.
I finished top rod catching over 35 fish in the week session, with 16 of them being over 30lbs and lot nearer to 40lb.
With the new rods now having full cork handles and 50mm ringing they also got a lot of interest from other anglers who loved the look/style."
|WHAT A MIRROR !!|
This fish is simply.....WOOW ! Our Italian friend Marco spent the week end in the biggest Italian River, the Po river, and together with his friend they have landed 16 fish during this 2 night session, they have prebaited the spot with our BK2S readymades just before starting the session and in less than 10 hours the fishes went crazy, the average size was extremely good and this 18.8kg mirror with amazing colors was the biggest of the session. Well done Marco !
