    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...

    Opportunity to fish the Hampshire Avon

    Been fishing Winkton fishery on the Hampshire Avon the last few years and I've caught a few.

    Selling wild Atlantic Salmon

    Am I correct saying that buying or selling wild Salmon is illegal? Or is it just rod caught fish? I suppose the netsmen have to sell their catch somewhere.

    Zip front chest waders

    I was initially impressed with zip front waders although sceptical about the zip waterproofing properties, the advantages of being able to take a leak without taking the waders down seemed to be a massive boon. As far as I can see this is not the case, unless I'm missing something. So, what's...
