Tiger season is around the corner and here are a few tips before the season gets underway.

Wire straightener

One of our favourite pieces of equipment for tiger fishing. It straightens the wire if it gets a kink or bend from a bite or been snagged on a reed etc in the water.

We wear it on a lanyard along with our nippers.
