    Lines for Loop Cross S1 Switch

    I do also have a Rio Scandi short that I use but find the head a tad long at 31ft for a 10'7" rod and at 21 grams it's a bit on the heavy side for the 6 weight. The Airflo has a shorter head and is an integrated line, hence the purchase. I have also tried the Rio single handed spey 7 weight and...

    Lines for Loop Cross S1 Switch

    I have the 10'7" #6 and recently matched it with the Airflo Switch/Spey floating line 300 grains (19 grams) and it casts really nice with a polyleader up front. I would imagine that the next weight up i.e. 330 grains (21 grams) would be ideal for the the 10'7" #7. The Airflo is on offer...

    No power on forward cast unless knee deep!

    OMG that sounds familiar (curve upstream-no power etc). Only yesterday I was so bad with left hand up, I had to stop fishing and just practise my casting with just the shooting head out of the tip ring. After about 30 minutes of continuous casting I got back on track and finished the day...

    Grey's XF2 12" S series

    Glasgow Angling had the XF2 double handers when I spoke to them a while back. I think they were display models , no tube or rod bag. They may still have a few left and could be at the right price. Maybe worth a call.

    running line

    I've been following this thread with interest and ordered the Asso Ultraflex 60lb orange which arrived today. I must say that first impressions looks favourable and the line is very supple and could find it's way onto a few, if not all my reels / spools. Is there a special way to form the loops...

    Best Lightweight packable wading jacket

    I bought a Loop Rautas jacket just before lockdown and haven't had the opportunity to test it yet. It appears to be well made and was just what I was looking for in a lightweight, packable jacket. It's marketed as a hiking jacket but it's so light it can be tucked under and secured with the hem...
