    Thank you for your replys. I am almost sure it needs a 8/9 to be at its best......

    Hardy Zephrus 12’6 7/8 vs Gaelforce Equalizer ESSS 33ft ?

    Anyone using the Zephrus and the integrated (short version) Equalizer ESSS Switch/short Spey Float combination ? Personally I am thinking that I should choose the 8/9 version instead of 7/8….? I handles slightly heavier lines than I thought when I bought it… This is my references so far.. Rio...

    Stuck Ferrule...Help!

    Try this with the modifikation that you both have a hand on each part. Then just pull/draw. It works everytime because of the even pressure. otherwise rubber gloves are also a very good way to do it. I always carry a pair of gloves some use when doing the dishes.

    Is junglecock important?

    Some flies I would NOT fish without JC. Others I do not care...Some put JC on Sunrays ! I personally prefer them without...but a tube ala Pathagorva or Green Highlander - I would never use without !! Does it matter ?...yes to me...but not to the fish.... :)

    Frodins new range of Salar Salmon Rods

    That is a good question ! I did not myself find any information. some of the rods will eventual break…and how will they deal with that….If it is as I think…they will replace any broken rods within warranty for 12 months…but they might have some additional….but then they should have stated it I...

    Frodins new range of Salar Salmon Rods

    I really cannot see the problem… He is in the tackle business and wants to make some money/run a business. He is one of the most “known” in our sport - and to me he has had a big influence on our sport. Now his new range of rods are put for sale and priced at market price. example: 15‘ rod...

    Autumn prospects

    Be ready ! From what I can see - next week Tue-Wed some rain in the forecasts for Aboyne and Banchory - I personally think the end of week 37 or week 38 might be very good.

    Lines - nerdy question

    And ofcourse MCXFisher is 100% correct in what he writes. I just put the other dimension into the picture. Normally I make jokes with friends in Denmark who tells me that a certain rod only will cast well with (let's say) 31,5 gram and nothing else....then I say - okay - we make a head of 3...

    Lines - nerdy question

    Weight is NOT the only issue ! The length of the head AND the taper (even distribution of the weight or more weight to the back?) will have a huge impact.... Much more than many think !!

    Patagonia/Denner Boots

    The latest price-reduction I think will be good for the sale of Patagonia Danner Boots. I am not sure they had wide succes selling the boot due to the high price. But with a reduction (I do not know if it is world wide - but at least in DK !) 100-115 GBP helps a bit...... :-) I fancy the boots...

    MOURINHO - NEW JOB

    Well he stays the best paid manager. He "normally" gets sacked and then gets the remaining amount according to his contract - and then start up a new job.....so for years he has had monthly payment from 2 employers ! Ofcourse I do know that when sacked he will get his salary upfront (remaining...

    Woodend

    I know the beat. For September my first pick would be 13’4 (13’8 as back-up). The 15’2 I personally would not use on Woodend .....only perhaps if high water in February/March. Nice beat.....Hopefully you will be able to travel...fingers crossed.

    Frodinflies

    I agree....I will happily buy another (not that I need one more !) top rod or reel...no mater what cost...if it is the right gear for me and meet my expectations. I have mentioned it before...the comparison.....All cars will take you from A to B......then why does everyone not buy the cheapest ...

    Frodinflies

    I think Frodin has had a huge impact on our fishing today..at least on Scandinavian fishing...(tubes, dressings, techniques etc.). Regarding prices...well his (Far East produced) flies is more expensive that (many) others.... and some mention the poor quality...but I have personally bought flies...

    New graphene Gaelforce rods

    Agree - but as a general rule I think most tackle-makers make sure, that their rods match their own lines ....etc. Brand A's 14' 9/10 will work perfectly with Brand A's line i 9/10 and visa versa..... But we like to combine things..and then we have to find the right match between different...
