About Us

A bit about myself……

Name Pete Berry age 64

I worked for the AA as a breakdown patrol for 40 yrs now retired and living in Lanzarote for the last five and a half years.

I’ve fished since the age of five mainly on the southwest Welsh marks I did lots of club matches, casting tournaments, rod building reel tuning and conversions etc, etc
I’m a registered Sea Angler Magazine casting instructor and have a PB of 274 yards yes I’m still on old money it sounds more than meters 

I invented the Gemini genie rig clip system in 1994 which won Emap tackle accessory of the year award in 1996 (my 15 minutes of fame) after I linked with Tony Caton the owner of Gemini Tackle (RIP) who put them into production the clips are still going well nearly 24 years later.

For anyone coming over to Lanza wanting any advice, help or would like to meet up to fish I regularly fish from the shore mainly with lures, being retired luckily I can and do fish most days (usually at first light) so ask away I’ll do my best to help.

Firstly let me say I am no guide, I do not charge for my help advice or taking peeps fishing though I have been known to except the odd bottle of Bacardi purely for medical reasons

I don’t post mark locations on the forum or pictures showing land marks as this would upset the natives but I’m more than happy to show individuals marks I fish.

When I first moved here what I knew about lure fishing could have been written on a postage stamp but thanks to Jeroen and Jamie I got quickly up to speed on what to use and where to fish.
Nearly six years on and with over 1,500 sessions under my belt I’ve learnt a thing or two on fishing Lanza.
