“Sidewinder lures are now delighted to be working closely with the lobby group Save Our Sea Bass, in order to pressure the government to re-think its policy regarding the public’s access to Sea bass stocks. Sidewinder lures are very disappointed in the huge difference between how the Government treats the commercial fishing sector as opposed to the Recreational Sea angling sector. From 2018 all Sidewinder products shall also carry the Save Our Sea Bass logo and we would encourage all individual Sea anglers with an interest in their sport to contact their MP as soon as possible to impress upon the Government how unhappy they are with the current situation.”

Yours sincerely David Kiddy MD – Sidewinder Lures.



Radio interview with David Kiddy – Sam Harris Show Sat 20th Jan 2018

“Why do Fisheries Ministers regard the livelihood of those dependent on recreational angling as inferior to livelihoods dependent on commercial fishing? He needs to urgently reconsider this decision and recognise that the 19,000 livelihoods and value to the economy that recreational sea fishing contributes is equally important , if not more so than the commercial sector and come up with a policy that shows a lot less bias and a lot more common sense.”
