    River Nith 2020

    Stop Press:, after mucho t'interweb rummaging, the map of the Boatford beat seems to sort of tally with my age dulled memory of visiting Mid Nithsdale. Pedro.

    Legalise Weed?

    Any body want any weed?, I've got a Garden full of the damn stuff, you're welcome to it all, just pop round with a spade and help yourself, as long as you leave it all neat and tidy afterwards! Pedro.

    Fluorocarbon or monofilament?

    Maybe, just for a change we should come at this from another angle?, as in what cast/leader material actually hinders us from catching fish.Puts the brakes on Salar enjoying a chew of the flee as it were and gives a Salmon exclusion zone between the fly line and the flee?. Pedro.

    Strangest thing youve seen fishing?

    Some spring tubes

    Salmon Rushdie, may I be bold enough to make a purely creative observation, as after all W.T.F. do I know?. For me, your 1st creation is just about bob on't brass!, however on the following proviso's. 1stly, the body needs a simple switch round, dubbed body immediately behind the head, flat...

    Plans for 2021

    The brakes are on everything apart from club fishings.Firmly and very comfortably sat on the fence currently, as my crystal ball is cloudy at the best of times. Could do with Spring fishing closer to home, so could at least get out a bit earlier than I have been doing over the past few years...

    Which switch

    Mikek1, I use an Airflo 40+ 7weight floater on the 6 weight rod and the Airflo 40+ 8 weight floater on the 7 weight rod.They both cast really strongly, esp. the 6 weight rod which has a strong Scandi action. The 6 weight rod I use Trout polys on-10fters and the 7 weight turns over 10ft Salmon...

    Which switch

    Being honest K28,there's not much difference between most 11ft 6 ins switch rods and most 13fters, it usually boils down to 18" of carbon. £ to a p they'll chuck the same lines near enough the same distance and you could be using them in near enough the same restricted space's. Where I would say...
