The ancient art of terrier fishing began more than 10,000 years ago when the first cave man had to fight off a small wolf from making off with a bit of skinned rabbit or deer.
Since then, the sport has progressed by leaps and bounds, and has gone noticeably high-tech with expensive rods made by FlowGuard (this is the "Gold" model) and special terrier-line (this is 200 weight).
Much to do is made about lures, but a good fisherman can do wonders with a bit of old towel or a torn sock, and often prefers it to the more expensive lures and fancy rigs fluttered over by the less skilled.
