Silver Spray Charters orders 2nd boat

We are pleased to announce that Silver Spray Charters has just ordered a new high speed catamaran for delivery in December 2011. Silver Spray 2 will be built by B.W. Sea Cat from Fareham in Hampshire and will feature a walk around wheelhouse for more fishing space on the drift as well as a cruise speed of 20knots. This should enable anglers to have more time fishing and less time travelling. The new boat will be approximately the same size as Silver Spray 1 and will have all of the same comforts such as a toilet and generator to run the microwave, kettle and hot water.

Day out with Sky Sports Tight Lines

A perfect day weather wise, even if it was a cold one, with not a breath of wind all day. With the Tight Lines crew and six keen anglers onboard: Sam Cumming, Andy Herman, Kelvin Hindmarch, Kevin Justice, Charlie Mcdowell and Alex Miles we made our way out to the sand banks about 15 mile off Poole. Fishing started slow with over 2 knots of tide running but once it started it continued all day pretty much. Everyone fishing on the day had a new personnal best with 1 undulate ray 5 blondes 6 spurdogs and a couple of congers popping up to say hello to the camera. With plenty of footage on the day we shall soon be appearing on the Tight Lines fishing program on Sky Sports. Thanks to everyone onboard for a great day all round.
Crew consisted of a soundman, a camera man and Andy Ford the presenter
