    Scottish politics

    Tricky one that, though I applaud the sentiment. Politicians have to become salesmen (and women) to survive. They sell us punters their own (party's) version of current events. Sadly this is now so entrenched that nothing, absolutely nothing, the other side say can ever be right. It seems...

    Spaniel people are just nicer than Labrador people. Don’t argue- it’s a fact not an opinion.

    About Scandi and Skagit lines

    I’ve been to Idaho in mid winter. I see your point.

    Cars: Mercedes must never be red. No, never! No matter what model or year they can’t be red, so stoppit! Anchovies: Inedible. Only eaten by cats trying to remove the taste of its own bottom from its tongue or by people who could lick a cat’s bottom.

    Doggy Photo's

    Timmins, the poor wee guy does look sorry for him/herself. Being a springer they'll probably be up and raring to go again in the morning. Hardy souls that they are. I've seen me find gashes that needed stitches only in the evening after a day out, the dog having shown no sign of any injury...

    starting out

    Pnut, Since no-one more experienced has jumped in, I'll kick off. It'll rather depend where you are going to fish. A lot of people are moving away from 15' rods to something shorter. 15' rods are long & require more space to cast, so if you're on a smaller river or somewhere with little...

    Patagonia (the company) supports anti's!

    Patagonia is a company with a strong ethos, I agree. They make some good, if expensive,products. Not for nothing were they called Patagucci in Chamonix for many years. Through skiing, climbing & now fishing, I've used their probucts for more years than I can remember, however they currently...

    Mini-Scandi tubes

    Hmm! I'm usually more concerned with the buggers hooking up and retaining trees, bushes or any other convenient but unreachable crevice. Fish, not so much.

    Patagonia (the company) supports anti's!

    Nice one Saffy. You're trying to turn this one round on me. I'm saying that MM are not an unbiased or prejudiced group. You said that they were made that way by current practices. I replied by saying that you sounded like the Trump diehards. I'm not trying to defend Trump or criminal...
