Corkwing Wrasse on Free Rig

It’s hard to justify the humble Corkwing Wrasse as a legitimate HRF target, however it is certainly possible to target them with scaled-down HRF tackle and smaller lures.

On this May day in Dorset, I landed three of the brightly-coloured Corkwing, among a ton of Ballans, fishing the most awesome, 2-inch Reins AX Craw Mini, mounted on a size 8 HTO Finesse Weedless hook and utilising the Free Rig.
