    Showing fish

    Would like to pick the brains of the forum on Salmon that show themselves, head and tailing or splashing. My home rivers are the Itchen and the Hants Avon. Occasional visits to the Wear and the Tees. On the Avon I'm picturing a spot which often holds at least one fish which will head and tail...

    Sinking lines

    Been a long time since I have used any sinking lines apart from poly leaders. When I last used any it was slow sinkers, wet cell 2 or hi speed hi D. I'm thinking of using something close to the old wet cell 2, single handed on the Avon this Spring. I see the descriptions have all changed over...

    Hooks for Rapala/110 copies.

    Got some Rapala/110 copies as recommended on here and very nice they are too. Hooks while very sharp are made of toffee and I fully expected to replace them anyway as I'll be fishing the Hants Avon where only one hook is allowed. Torn between singles or trebles. So, looking for a bit of advice...

    Tees Salmon

    In Salmon news section at the top of the home page is a post written by John Bailey. Very interesting, he's guiding in Yorkshire, Trout, Salmon and Grayling, well worth a read.

    Surfers against Sewage

    Like some others I responded to their petition, posted here, a few weeks back and signed it. Had a phone call today from a delightful young lady soliciting for donations. I refused to donate on the basis that there are lots of organisations (the EA?) that would like to achieve the same aim and...

    Loading flyline.

    Years ago flylines invariably were supplied on spools and it was an easy job to transfer them to to a reel, reel to reel as it were, like a tape recorder. Nowadays though lines tend to be supplied without spools in coils and held together with a couple of bits of pipe cleaner. I've got a few of...

    Owner hooks In my local tackle shop the other day to pick up some Owner trebles and was dismayed to be told that he didn't have any because the distributor had given up handling Owner hooks. A large distributor so there could be a shortage in the near future unless...

    How deep?

    Let's say that a Salmon has been lying in a particular spot for a week. Nice steady current in around 8 feet of water. Head and tailing regularly and so far has refused all flies and spinners presented to it. How deep is it likely to be lying between showing itself? What would be the best depth...
