Ross has advised that I’d be looking for a reel around 9-10 oz on a rod with a natural handle so I can drop about 1oz as composite is a little heavier. So the H5D 9thirteen should be spot on right enough. I was also considering an Evotec G4 Diarmid but think I’ll go with the Danielsson to match the reel seat. Hope the mrs is out when the postman comes 👍

I was going to change the reel to a classic but the retrieve is so much better on that reel.

My 12ft Greyline has a 7/9 classic on it & that’s my go to rod for small to medium rivers.

That’s on the river Ayr at Stair.
A wee syndicate we’ve got & it’s a cracking bit of water.

Was back down earlier determined to get an early Ayrshire springer but no luck again.

Cheers, fingers crossed.

They are few & far between but if your flees no in the water then you won’t get them.

Lovely bit of water, the Ayrshire rivers are underestimated, they can be great at times. I was bought up fishing the Irvine and when I could drive I fished the Ayr, Stinchar Doon, Nith etc, had some great times and at one time trying to get access to rivers like the Stinchar was dead mans shoes. Keep us posted of when that first springer appears, there should be the odd one about late March and into April.

Will do.
You can walk onto any beat on the Stinchar these days & it’s sad to see from its hay days of fish galore.

We had a good run on the Ayr last year & fingers crossed for the same again.

I’m thinking about getting a Gaelforce Equalizer Multi Tip #8/9 for my new 8130-6. Has anybody casted one by any chance?

It’s between that and the 54ft #8/9 Spey line which has already been recommended. I’m tempted by the versatility of the multi tip though. If anybody has tried one I’d be interested to hear their thoughts.

Can't comment on the rod but it is a great line. I have the 7/8 on my 7139. And I have the 8/9 on my 12'9" Gaelforce rod. And the 10/11 on my 14'6" Gaelforce rod.

That’s good to hear. I just took delivery of the #10/11 for my 15’er because I liked the idea of the multi-tips

My new rod has arrived! It’s stunning and although my River Dee trip has been cancelled I hope to use in Norway and Scotland later this year. Can’t wait!

A friend of mine has just purchased a 13ft rod of this brand, it casts amazing and looks beautiful. I'am considering the 13'6 model for a 9-10# or 13'11 9-10# Would any of you guys have experience with these models for use in Norway with shooting head lines 36-38 grams? Rio, Guideline, Nexctast etc. Thank You.

Hi Nilslaks,
I have a few RJC rods including the 1311 9/10. It's a really lovely rod to fish with and is extremely versatile regarding lines. I like lines from 36g to 38g in shooting heads and the 9/10 gaelforce spey lines are great too. I can't fault RJC rods at all and the finish and fittings are superb 👍

Hi Nilslaks,
I have the 13'6" 9wt and it's a stunning rod with scandi heads from 36-38g. My favourite lines are the Guideline 3D+ 9/10wt which are 37g. I also like the Rio Scandi 38g and the Loop GDC 9wt at 36g.
Its a very easy rod to get on with and brings a smile to my face every time I use it.
Regards Diarmid.
