    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...

    Diawa Air AGS

    Think what dulled Diawa's sales of Salmon fly rods, was going the traditional route, or trying to!.You know, the made in Scotland/UK thing, when largely the rods were assembled in Scotland by a Japanese company.Just tell the truth Diawa, as it is/was and folk would accept good rods for what they...

    Covid Vaccine... Well would you ??

    I don't trust what I'm told and especially do not trust those doing the telling. My mantra on life and just about anything, is never to rush in to anything!. On that line of thought alone, I wont be beating a path to the local witch doctors to be treated like a pin cushion. I'll personally be...

    Salmon fishing holiday with accomodation

    You could do far worse than a Ticket on the Association Water at Grantown on Spey and taking a static Caravan on the excellent site there.No doubt there'd be self catering digs there in the local area, as well as B+B accommodation too!. Pedro.

    Balancing Rod and line

    Geordieboy, you don't need a specific length of poly leader for certain lengths of rod. Keeping things simple, a poly leader is a tapered leader covered in a sinking polymer.You wouldn't start fishing with any line on any rod with merely 5ft of leader material?, it wouldn't cast well or present...

My pal had a football floating round in the big eddy next to his feet on a flooded river Trent one day, only it...

    Peat Stain!

    One of my club fishings on Ribble can be affected often quite heavily by peat stain.Just wondering what level of Peat stain, or Ph reading or indeed acidity level begins to switch Salar off, and then to the point why?. Is it down to a change in the water quality, or Salar just needing time to...

My second came from the mighty Tay on an 18ft rod (Bob Church Taysider)...

    Locked Down Tweed ?

    If I remember rightly, the guy who did manage it was Irish?, he had a specially converted camper van to help with his efforts of travelling and fishing various rivers. Mindst you my memory? - - - - Pedro.
