  3. Trout Fishing
    Well when the rivers to big to fish it’s always worth a bash on the burns for me it sure beats stocky bashing , the fish are small but so are there living conditions and there can be the chance of a larger fish or even maybe a sea trout. To wet and windy for drys we opted for two wets , kate...

When we left the water temperature was down to 9 degrees and the air temperature similar. Still we had...

    Not a fly I use much but I'm going to have to try them out a bit more this season if we ever get decent conditions. I'd like to hear others views on their attempts at using wake flies

    SOS's recently started post re fish pal catches and their effect on bookings reminded of a question I've been meaning to put out there for a while. For those around long enough pre the 'digital age', do you find that sometimes you fish less as you can just flick online and check the state of...

  17. Irish Rivers Reports & News
    Getting a day on it in early August, conditions permitting. Totally unfamiliar with the water. Anyone have any tips/experience? Beat 8, 5 etc? Selection of flies etc? Any advice appreciated!! I was going to fish it with a 9 1/2 footer, floating, shrimp flies and various others, possibly smaller...

    In the interests of starting a new, fish focused thread I have decided to put my "recurring" question out on the forum. It's all about flies. Types, sizes and conditions. My initial problem is simple, I cannot get my head around flies and salmon. I come from a trout background and when the fly...
