    Lines for Loop Cross S1 Switch

    I do also have a Rio Scandi short that I use but find the head a tad long at 31ft for a 10'7" rod and at 21 grams it's a bit on the heavy side for the 6 weight. The Airflo has a shorter head and is an integrated line, hence the purchase. I have also tried the Rio single handed spey 7 weight and...

    Lines for Loop Cross S1 Switch

    I have the 10'7" #6 and recently matched it with the Airflo Switch/Spey floating line 300 grains (19 grams) and it casts really nice with a polyleader up front. I would imagine that the next weight up i.e. 330 grains (21 grams) would be ideal for the the 10'7" #7. The Airflo is on offer...

    No power on forward cast unless knee deep!

    OMG that sounds familiar (curve upstream-no power etc). Only yesterday I was so bad with left hand up, I had to stop fishing and just practise my casting with just the shooting head out of the tip ring. After about 30 minutes of continuous casting I got back on track and finished the day...

    Grey's XF2 12" S series

    Glasgow Angling had the XF2 double handers when I spoke to them a while back. I think they were display models , no tube or rod bag. They may still have a few left and could be at the right price. Maybe worth a call.

    running line

    I've been following this thread with interest and ordered the Asso Ultraflex 60lb orange which arrived today. I must say that first impressions looks favourable and the line is very supple and could find it's way onto a few, if not all my reels / spools. Is there a special way to form the loops...

    Best Lightweight packable wading jacket

    I bought a Loop Rautas jacket just before lockdown and haven't had the opportunity to test it yet. It appears to be well made and was just what I was looking for in a lightweight, packable jacket. It's marketed as a hiking jacket but it's so light it can be tucked under and secured with the hem...

    Skating/Waking flee's

    That's a very nice collection of wake flies you have there and thank you for posting them. I particularly like the dollies and I bet they ride high on the surface compared to the plastic tubes (could be wrong though). This style of fishing is all completely new to me but I'll be giving it a good...
