A big thank you goes out to those that have purchased my lure the RigN Spin…this lure is catching fish every where…and game fish of all kinds…follow my facebook pages and see many fish and many testimonials coming in… from salmon in B.C to smallmouth bass in the east…lots and many fish are being caught on my lure…I developed this lure to do and achieve many things, mostly to be fished at any speed and at any depth from shore or by boat cast or trolled, what ever ones mind can come up with my lure will do its job that it was designed to do… catch game fish of all kinds. This lure has many applications and varies from the fish catcher which is a smaller bladed rig with small to medium single hooks, the smasher is a medium sized blade with medium to a bigger hook, the destroyer is bigger blade and larger hook for those bigger fish…all in all my lures have delivered day after day, this lure has great potential to be used the world over enhancing every fisherman that enjoys and recreates in the great outdoors passion of sport fishing. One could only hope that a lure such as this could only catch in certain circumstances, but it does and it can catch a wide variety of many species of fish. Over the years in those days of field testing tried and true that I became more intrigued with its ability to catch fish in many diverse applications and at any depth and slower the better. I have many proto types from ultra light for finnacky trout and perch to medium flouro carbon tough to heavy duty seven strand wire for pike and walleye, now my even tougher line of lures now can be made with titanium all specie lure, the titanium is more expensive but is more durable and does not kink up after a few fish. These lures are for sale either here on line or Nanton Gas Plus or Flys Etc. High River and you can even look me up and I can meet with you and/or sell direct and I can custom make them for you. custom hand made lures by Andy The Master Angler. My light weight floro carbons and seven strand wire ones starting from $6.50 per unit and the Titaniums are $10.00 and up… stop by and see for your self as I have many vids and photos of fish caught on my lures…

I have fished all over from shore and by boat and mostly on Clear lake, Twin Valley Dam, Pine coulee, Macgregor Lake, kehoe and Little Bow Lake and canal.
As we all know the regulations have changed dramatically on most lakes and reservoirs in regards to keeping pike and walleye especially pike this year.
Due to those changes anglers are now shifting their efforts on waters where regulations allow for retention of your catch, for me it does not matter for the most part, as I practice catch and release and do selective harvest where I am allowed when I want a dinner fish. Continue reading Southern Alberta Sport Fishing
Yes another season of closed species on most of Southern Alberta waterways. Last year it was Walleye closure on Travers Dam due to over harvest fishing pressure. For 2015 most lakes are now zero pike limits as well, goes to show that over harvesting on most lakes is devastating our fish populations. Meaning that things are now leaning towards more recreational sport fishing activities. Now every thing will shift to those lakes that are still in effect selective harvest and will in turn be over pressured. Check the regulations carefully when picking your catch and keep harvest type lakes if there are any left in the near future. For me I can adjust as I practice catch and release type sport fishing on a daily basis in hopes of less fisherman on those once crowded lakes of over harvest in days now gone by. In retrospect one has to adjust their hobby and practice catch and release and focus more on conservation and care for our water ways. We as fisherman are to blame as we all over time, have taken our share from the resource and now over that time are seeing the results of that over harvest and fishing pressure as whole across the province. Now we see dramatic changes in the regulations to help these collapsed fisheries. Again check the regulations for each water body and yes keep practicing catch and release for our future generations to come. Sharp hooks and tight lines.
Every wondered what to do with the kids once school is out for the summer? “Guess what” there is always fishing and it is simple and affordable to do.
Some are close and some you will travel a short distance to. Once you get the fishing bug it will keep one focused and you will find it relaxing if not entertaining once you have picked up on the basics of fishing.
You’ll wonder and be saying to your self “WOW” that was fun and I want to do it more. The smiles it brings says that a good day was had by all.
So if you need help with the kids “THE MASTER ANGLER” is here to tell you all its that easy, just get out and give it a try. Even if its ice fishing you would like to try, look me up for more winter fun once the summer and fall are over.
