    Test curves

    Funny you should mention the reel, the bale arm spring went after only about 10 outings! Not impressed.

    River Wear 2020

    All this photograph proves is that inbreeding is still rife in parts of the dale. I’d bet good money if the cameraman panned round there’d be someone playing a banjo on the front veranda! ‘kin idiots!

    Rio Skagit Max 550g for the same in 500g

    Test cast only, the 550 is too heavy for my rod, I need a slightly lighter line.

    Early November Tweed Beat recommendation

    Any recommendations for a beat on the upper Tweed for one day, 5th November, for a group of 7 rods. I’m struggling on Fishpal and Tweedbeats to find somewhere. Oh and it has to be less than £100/rod!

    River Wear 2020

    What time did you go to Pagebank? You were unlucky! I was down first light until about 13:00 Had two Seatrout on the fly. Another chap had 5 on spinner and I know another contributor on here lost a salmon too in the evening. I never saw a fish either all morning but they’re there!

    LPXe 15' 10/11 Line recommendations

    After all the good advice, I've now ordered a Guideline PT Evolve SH 10/11 43g/660gr full floater (£64.37 direct from Guideline) and on the basis that the John Norris Ni1 10/11 660gr seems to be virtually the same as the Rage but cheaper (£19.99), I've ordered one of those too.... and a few new...

    Ah I've got it now, thanks Phil. For some reason I thought that was a saltwater line! What do you use it with i.e. poly leaders, light/heavy flies etc?
