    There are a few guys go to the quarry and try out each others setups. James Chambers is often there and he has all the gaelforce lines etc, in which he is more than happy to let you try. All the guys that I have spoken too are very helpful.

    Ps..the quarry is in Kilsyth { Auchinstarry }

    Default Gaelforce Lines

    Just give James a call and you can nip over and try a range of the above lines.

    Its good to give him a call first tell him what rod you have and what you are looking for and he will come armed with all variations in those lines.

    A wee tip I have learned tho after buying a good number of James Chalmers lines is ask him to try your rod if you are not sure and he will give you his informed opinion and its also good to see a master casting his own creations !!!

    Saturday Morning is a good time to catch him at the Quarry.

    PS Jock is a great guy and a very accomplished caster James is the Boss of Gaelforce Lines !!

    Hi Loopy I go to the quarry often great bunch for tips. As already stated James Chalmers is often there. His gaelforce lines are first class.
