Stillwater Beast Feet Spikes Keep You Surefooted

Winter is upon us, the temperatures are dropping fast and each day is getting increasingly icy underfoot.  In some cases it's impossible to walk to your front gate or even walk along the pavement!


However a pair of Stillwater Beast Feet Spikes will solve your problem, giving you confidence to walk on iced up paths, walkways and pavements.

Beast Feet Spikes can be added to a variety of footwear and are held in place by a stretchy rubber frame. The beauty is, when you've reached 'normal conditions' underfoot, you can take them off and put them away without having to keep walking around with metal studs on your shoes.

Take Part in the Sea Angling 2017 Survey


Sea Angling 2017 is an exciting project in which 1,000 sea anglers will be selected to complete a bespoke Online Catch Diary next year.  The study follows on from Sea Angling 2012 which showed the huge economic and social importance of sea angling in the UK and a similar study undertaken in 2016.
The study is also vital to inform government bodies about what is being caught and what sea angling is worth in the UK.  

Ultimately, taking part in the Sea Angling Survey will help manage fish stocks sustainably, demonstrate the importance of sea angling to the UK economy and provide vital information regarding the quantity and diversity of species caught.

Participation could not be simpler.  You'll receive access to a unique Online Catch Diary Tool, a sea fish identification book and catch recording kit, a bespoke waterproof catch recording notebook and measuring tape and your chance to win a £50 or £25 tackle voucher each month you enter data into the online diary.

If you would like to be part of this important study, please sign up for the Sea Angling 2017 survey.
