    I am new to salmon fishing but had a week on the Findhorn which prompted my Ebay purchases of a Shakespeare Skagit 12'9" 9# and a Loomis NRX 14' 9/10#. The only line I have is the Airflo Rage Shooting Head in 9/10# (the kit comes with 3 x 12’ tips - floating, intermediate and fast sinking). I...

    Looking some advice. I bought a jungle cock cape over the internet in early January. When it arrived I opened it, used it once, didn’t really like the look or smell of it - put it back in its plastic bag and put it away. I don’t know if I left it on the desk at some stage although I probably...

    So last week I sent two emails, one to Rio and one to Hardy asking for advice on a line weight in grains for a particular Hardy rod.

    It is with regret that I learned yesterday of the death of our fellow member Morse who departed this world last Monday. I met Gordon on a few occasions on the River Spey and always found him there as I did here on the forum, a kindly, modest gentleman, giving with good advice, who loved his...

    Hi, can anyone give me some advice on a line to buy for delicate presentation. I’m currently using an airflo rage which is great for when it’s windy or high water but find it a bit to splashy on the smooth glides when the river is getting low. I’m using a 13ft 8# uniqua. Thanks in advance
