    Which switch

    Yes you are 100% correct it’s a rod that can be used single or double handed. Some manufacturers claim they have a range of switch rods but in fact they are just short double handlers. Look for casting weights of 16 to 19 grams, any heavier and it’s difficult to use for a prolonged time as a...

    The passion was made after the so called “copy” and is based on that. Both are quality reels

    Vosseler passion reels

    I have two of the Salmologic ones which the Passion is based. These are excellent Quality reels. They are not as loud as a Classic but that suits me just fine

    Atlantic Salmon on a toothpick anyone?

    Seen plenty of people playing fish to death with 15footers, it’s not the rod it’s how you use it

    New boots for 2021

    I like both soles, felt for the summer when rocks are slimey but for all other times it’s rubber and studs. Ha try wearing felt soles when there is snow on the ground and you will grow 4”. Dangerous for bank fishing but good on slippery stones. I have a 2 x Simms and 2 x Patagonia boots both...

    Danielsson for 14’6” Hardy Zephrus

    Wow factor!

    Good thread this nice to see people getting enthusiastic about next season already. A rod that really worked for me this year was the Serenity 12'10" 31g matched with various SL heads, I've had it for a couple of years but for one reason or another didn't get out to play much, it excelled with...

    Patagonia River salt & SST wading jackets

    Green flies...yes or no?
