    I have received some wooden blanks to make Devon minnows. Can anyone help with advising me the best way to cut the angles to fit the spinning vanes? Is there any sort of jig that anglers use. Any help will be much appreciated. Glyn

    Many many moons ago, probably early 60's, on a family holiday to Devon, one of our daily outings was to Lynmouth. Fresh in my parents mind because of a flooding disaster a few years earlier, if my mind isn't playing tricks on me. My abiding memory of the day was of traveling up the extremely...

    Inherited a few Devon Minnows from my father. Most are unweighted and I fish with the bouncing Betty setup as shown on Chris Connoly's website. However I have a few with a copper? tube running through them. One or two of the very small ones are actually metal. Are these meant to be fished on...

    A post this evening by JACK POWER referred to a book by Sidney Spencer. I have most of his books and they are my absolute favourites from my small library. I lend them to no one! What has always intrigued me is who was Sidney Spencer... is the name a pen-name? What did he do other than...
