    Decided to dig my summer gear out for a sort out in anticipation of those warm summer nights on the shore, and as suspected my lures are looking a bit worse for wear and need new trebles so what size do I replace them with and any recommended brands.
    Could also do with a new reel so any views on that also appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    generally size 4 should be all you need,some lures actions can change dramatically though with trebles of different weights and sizes.your trebles might be on a lure for some time so choose a decent brand like owner or vmc.

    Alright Craig,

    Ive just got some of these off this guy on ebay...

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20-VMC-4X-STRONG-TREBLES-SIZE-4-PERMA-STEEL-9626-PS-/301136919258?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item461d28bada

    The price is pretty decent and free delivery too, he does size 2 and 6 as well, most of my plugs seem to be a number 4 but some of the smaller ones are a 6 but I already had a packet of them from the other year.

    Only fishing we have done this year was a day at scaling last weekend. Dan is off to Anglesey next weekend with his wife camping for a few days, hes got instructions to find some nice looking spots but not catch anything till we both go back later in the year lol.

    Think were gonna give Scotland a go back end of May, but yeah Im itchin to get out again round here, reckon this mild winter and spring will speed things up a bit compared to last year.
