Been seeing a lot of big fish pictures on Facebook recently, most from Russia.
Nearly everyone looks like it has a touch of the red belly disease we had last year.
Is it a new phenomenon over there, or is that where it's come from?
What does everyone else think?
So what will 2020 bring us in the salmon fishing world, any predictions?
All doom and gloom again or any glimmers of hope?
By some strange twist of fate I've found myself in the Far North where nearly everything appears to be pretty rosy compared to the rest of the UK. One worry is if we will...
I am looking for a reel to be used on a 9/10 or 10/11 rod and that could hold a long belly line (carron 9/10 65ft and 10/11 75ft head).
As I don’t cast long belly lines often, I don’t want to break the bank for spare spools.
So I was having a look at the hardy ASR 9000 and its cassette...
I just had an XO vision 14'4 # 9, if anyone to experience this rod? Any advice on which lines to use will be welcome.
I usually use a vision CULT 14'7 # 9 and I can not find
my landmarks with the XO. ( line Mid Belly )
Reviews on the Hardy smugler 14'6 # 10 6 sections?
I'm quite interested but I'm a little afraid of having a fast action, I'm a fan of mid / long belly lines and therefore softer actions; cult vision for example.
Thanks in advance
I was wondering if there's anyone out there with a scan of the first article in Trout & Salmon magazine about Pot Belly Pig salmon flies? It featured three patterns I believe. I once had a scan of it but cannot locate it now. Perhaps it is available in the tying section of this site somewhere...
