    Lets be honest, 95% of us going Salmon fishing abroad will have had both inoculations in plenty of time! We are not exactly a youthful demographic :rolleyes:. I'm due 2nd week in July on the Gaula, and still keeping my fingers crossed ( second dose in 3 weeks).

    If anyone hears about Norway allowing visitors ( especially with only one jab) please post as soon as you hear any news or gossip. I still have a week on the Gaula booked (2nd week July) and have not rolled it over yet. But due to work I'll probably have to make a decision yes or no in the...

    Six Nations Rugby 2021

    Stop it with the - ruined the game and we got lucky bit. You all seem to have ignored the fact that prior to Both tries, Wales had a penalty advantage so we would have still almost certainly had 6 points ( if not the 14 ). That would have given Wales an 8 point margin at the end - more than a...

    Making a copy of a Bogdan reel

    I thought I was doing well stripping down to parts my ABU 7000C's and putting them back together clean and working. Not wasting your lockdown time are you! Very impressive.

    best 9/10 size reel in your opinions under £400

    You can not beat Danielsson reels, they are technically in the Abel/Tibor bracket but at a sensible price. As I wrote only this morning elsewhere - I have more than a few - but possibly not enough...

    Six Nations Rugby 2021

    In my opinion it was a clear red for the reasons Handel mentions above. There is no such thing as "clearing out" in the Laws, it is the cause of a lot of head injuries, and knee injuries and should be stamped out ( poor phrase use). Players charging in at the side, hitting prone players ar...

    Lakselv , 2020, And No fishing for Foreign Anglers, and No Refund

    I had my booking, for which I had paid 50% deposit for, on the Gaula ( Winsnes) moved to next year. I have taken a voucher for my KLM flights. Dissapointing, but still I'm looking forward to 2021. :-)

    Intruders for Atlantic Salmon

    Does anyone use Pacific West Coast type large intruders ( tube & single hook) for Atlantic Salmon? They are smaller than a rapala and not too bulky to cast. I have a bunch left over from a trip to the Skeena and was wondering if I might give them a swim in the Gaula this Mid June - assuming...

    Skeena and tribs, second week of Sept. What Have I forgotten?

    Well I''m off to the Skeena in the second week of Sept. I have rods and Skagit lines, I've tied some of odd looking chickens on tubes. What little bits and pieces may I forget to take? How cold and wet may it be? Is there anything special I should take ( other than a bottle of Lagavulin 16...

    Travel Insurance for a Fishing trip?

    Any ideas? I'm off to BC in September, but all the travel insurance I look at, even ones "for fishermen", have a single item in baggage claim of around £300, My fishing kit in checked baggage, 3 rods etc ( reels in hand luggage ) comes to about ten times that. Anyone got an good advice or...
