I look forward to providing whatever advice I can, and if possible, to meeting you on the water (or in a pub).
A tremendous amount will depend on rainfall and water levels, so I won't commit to anything at this stage.
Yes that's right.
The stripping and fraying starts with the bucks shedding the velvet off their antlers and marking their territory. They have a scent gland up there so they leave smell on the sapling. At the same time they will usually scratch the ground at the base of the sapling with a...
apart from one short stretch there was too little water to be able to do much above the falls. There's a huge pool at the top of the beat, but you can only cover a part of it owing to very difficult casting caused by the presence of large willow trees with only two gaps and impossible...
On the assumption that the deer amongst your Christmas trees (and biting the leader buds off) are roe, then your best calibre choices are either .243 or 6.5mmx55 (my favourite).
The process used to be fairly straightforward.

It was indeed, thank you, and all the better for knowing that less than 9 hours previously it was swimming in Yorkshire water! Some new potatoes would have been ideal, but for some reason they're very late to market this year.

- Fishes well with a good water level
- Great value (albeit there's only about 500 yards of fishable length)
It's been a long while since I last wrote an article, but here's 'At Long Last', marking my first day out after salmon since last autumn, during which I missed two salmon, caught a sea trout and wound up with a specimen coarse fish of lifetime size.
I re-proofed the Prestige at the end of every season by washing with Nikwax TechWash and long-rinsing with NikWax TX. That seemed to work very well. When it started leaking it was through the seams that were coming apart with old age.
Don't worry about the Nomad jacket, it's serious kit and...
At this price point there are some superb jackets in the market place, all of them waterproof in extremis and very robust. It's very tough to make a breathable jacket down to a price, so in quality it would be hard to put much paper between them. That said, Loop's pricing policy is opaque in...
What is absolutely clear is that the south east of England cannot continue on its present water supply/consumption trajectory. If you walk the Berkshire Downs around Lambourn you encounter aquifer abstraction plants in every grid square, and the same is true for the other chalk downloads in the...
