    I used to practice my casting with a trout rod on the grass. Is it possible to do the same with a salmon rod or is it better to find some water to do it on?

    Unfortunately I was unable to fish the Dee this week due to a back problem. I did however take my 4wt sage switch rod to Elinor fishery to practice my Spey casting and see how the back held up. My mates still went to the Dee, no fish, no kelts, no pulls and seals in the river to Banchory. I...

When I went to my doctor he very kindly told me to stop fishinh and go to a private pyschio. Which I almost did for a year. I cut back on trout fishing and...

    For a while now I've been using two lines on my Sage One 11ft 6 ins 8 weight switch, favouring the Airflo Rage 510.Now it casts like stink for flaming miles and wind dosent bother it in the slightest!.However it's not the best in presentation stakes especially in low water and I've allways been...

    Hi. After the great success my young lad had at the casting clinic put on by the Perth club I’ve decided to take him with me on my annual trip up to Helmsdale to fish for the grilse. I’m going to treat him to a Shakespeare oracle switch 11ft #8/9 as they have great reviews and been recommended...

    One of the things I love about salmon/steelhead fishing is Spey casting and I've worked hard to become a better caster over the years. I'd never claim to be a brilliant caster, but I'm definitely much better than I was! When I started Spey casting I imagined that if I learned to cast a long...

    Just bought a new shooting head (fool) and was wondering if practice casting on grass will damage it ? Haven't practiced in recent years, but need to make more effort. My nearest running river is the Humber Estuary (which isn't really suitable), so my preferred option isn't available within...

It's rarely possible to...
