    Covering deep pools with slow moving water

    If you are fishing a beat where fish are running and resting in other spots, then I would target the spots that are best suited to the fly before trying to get a fish out of a slow pool not ideally suited to fishing a fly. As a good pal of mine used to say "action water, action fish!" However...

    Bring a midge net and lots of repellant, they are ferocious and unrelenting in that area!

    River Awe First week of September

    The Lochy on the Awe system is a small spate stream, not to be confused with the more reputable Lochy at Fort William. The Awe and the Orchy are both stunning rivers, I fish them both. They do really need running fish to get the best out of them, as the fish can switch off fairly quickly once...

    River Awe First week of September

    It does, but not sure how much of a run it gets. Pretty sure there are a couple of wee dams on it that might halt their progress.

    Switch rods useful or a marketing scam?

    I've never really bought into the Switch Rod market. Before it became a big thing, I took a relatively stiff single handed 11 footer that I had and converted it to a double handed rod. It did allow my to spey cast easier when required and I could still use it to cast single handed. It was...

    So, because I am Scottish, I am not allowed to be critical of the UK Gov. I wasn't pointing the finger at you or anybody else apart from the UK Government. Get over yourself!

    Maybe this one is more to your liking, when Loyalists attacked a peaceful YES gathering in George Square, giving Nazi salutes and then charging in, setting off flares and attacking people regardless of age or gender...

    What is sad about it? It seems that most contributors on here think that the Unionist side is free from flag wavers, bigots, racists and loonballs. So, they do say that a picture paints a thousand words.

    That was news to me that one. I was referring to an earlier one where she was attacked and threatened. She was also told to "Go Home" outside Westminster. Anyway, talking about bampots, I'll leave these up for you review (what was it somebody was saying about misappropriation of flags?!)

    Well I wouldn't put an SNP or Indy sticker on my car for fear of being attacked or having the car damaged, though, I think your argument also bears no relation to reality. there is absolutely no evidence that Indy supporters go around attacking those supporting the union, apart from some...

    You can take from it what you will Walleye, but as much as you keep saying it, I am in no way anti-English, no matter how often you try to play that same card. The reason that everything that happens in Westminster is relevant to Scottish Politics is because Westminster still governs Scotland...

    Scottish politics

    Firstly, let's get over the "silent majority" nonsense, as if claiming one side is gentle and submissive while the other are raging antagonists. That is simply a fallacy designed to offer a false portrayal, as evidenced on this very thread! Also, we'll have to wait and see who is in the...

    To repeat, my comments are not about English people, I made them as a reference to other parties and not countries. The main point being that this thread is not actually about "Scottish Politics" because from the very first post was an attack on one party. Now, how can we talk about Scottish...

    Ozzy, I carefully check any facts that I post here. Thus far we have some trying to say that Norway never really benefitted from North Sea Oil and others posting infantile pictures of Nicola Sturgeon in a Nazi uniform. However, what makes this thread hypocritical and one sided is that none of...
