    Completely clear tip....?

    Clear Floating and Intermediate 15ft Airflo poly leaders available from most reputable tackle dealers, or direct from Airflo themselves.Yes not as heavy as pukka 15ft tips, but will add to most floating lines to give you what you want. Pedro.

    Polyleader to trace knot 🪢

    I'm at a loss to explain that Stoatstail1967, if anything its the loop to loop that should hinge!. Forgive me as I don't want to cast aspersions ( only a Salmon flee! ) but I know nothing about your level as a caster or how you rig your leaders and the last thing I want to do is call you out for...

    Integrated Single handed Spey line

    Geordieboy, Maxcatch do a pukka single handed Spey line, from China yours for £13 ish, as against Rio's item at £90 !. I got one, not had a cast with mine yet, but heard nothing but good about them!. Pedro.

    Shooting head recommendation

    eldred, a little confused here, your rod is rated 9/10, as such any guideline 9/10 line will be a perfect match- they're designed to be!. Now I presume you'll be wanting a floater for your rod- 100% of people have at least a floating line for their rod. I'd also recommend you get yourself a set...

    Polyleader to trace knot 🪢

    Rivererge 3mm or 2mm tippet rings 1/2 blood one to each poly leader, then the mearest touch of water proof super glue on the knot only. When dry trim every thing neat n tidy. You can now use any tippet material you want and more to the point your poly leader will last absolutely ages!. One tip...

    Covering deep pools with slow moving water

    That can work out expensive!, rivers can and do have stoney bottoms, bit of a rough bottom to your pool and it can shred your line in quick time, also if there's vestige of current, it'll swing and pull the line into the stones, rocks etc all the more!. As I also said in my reply to the thread...

    Ribble 2021

    Thats my line of thinking too Scagit!. Warmer water wouldn't go amiss either for fish to start to clear the weirs is all we need now. I'd feel much much more confident on seeing Otters, especially in numbers Sutty!. Pedro.

    Ribble 2021

    Well cuda, I know nowt really, only a relative new comer (10 years ish), but so far I'm finding Ribble fish like a smaller flee and one with a bit of Red in it too. From August onwards I'm happy to use an all Red flee until the end of the season.I'd also like to say, cut down on the flash too -...

    Ribble 2021

    Only 3ft!, very surprised at that the way it came down last evening, honestly Pendle Hill disappeared into the black clouds, thought it could well have been in the fields today. Pedro.

    Covering deep pools with slow moving water

    I fish pools like this quite frequently. From the off it helps if you're seeing fish, if they are there then start with a long leader and a non too heavy flee 1st off.Never retrieve in a straight line, try and get a curve into the line, short twitchy retrieve make that flee look alive. I often...

    Ribble 2021

    What a day, lovely warm sunshine all the drive over, tackled up in just the jumper, sun gigs on, carried the jacket and left it in the hut sweating as I took my 1st highly suspect casts of the year, minutes later, clouded over temp. dropped like an anvil down a mine shaft, started to spit. Had...

    There won't be big numbers of chrome fresh Beauties waiting for me- just yet!,lol- however the eagled eyed may well have spotted Sutty's thread about positive contact- he's upstream of me!, so statistically there is a chance, but!- I'll have to put in the miles and look for one but most of all...

    At Long Last

    Nows the time to bank a seriously gurt big Rub a Dub, prior to spawning they'll be snapping up like mad and their predatory instinct will be very very strong.They'll be in the faster water and runs pairing up and going through the spawning rituals, the bigger fish become very territorial and...

    Varioverse Vision

    Interestingly, I was deeply unsure about this reel on its introduction and I think I voiced that too.However, it's only pretty much the same as the now highly fashionable and respected Danilesson Control ( so it shows what I know! ). So, sat here with pride well n truly swallowed, egg all over...
