Found a couple of capes I hadn't used in a while, it felt damp to touch. On inspection seen small white looking eggs. Fortunately the capes were completely separate from my other material. Anyway I've double bagged and stuck them in the freezer, is 2 days long enough? And on defrosting...
As I ponder my fishing in the future when ever that is, my mind is thinking towards a 7wt double handed rod.
I used to have a sage one 7136 which is a lovely rod but I sold it to help fund a light 9wt rod for a trip to Norway which is now not happening. I also had a 6pc loop cross S1 which is a...

I'm going to fish the Lower Varzuga the second week of June this summer.

Fulling mill magni double silver size 8 x9
Fulling mill magni double black size 8 x6
Esmond drury trebles sizes 4&6...

I am being especially thick this morning but does this clip show a Snap T or a double spey ?
If its a double spey I have been doing the initial sweep upstream wrong for years - which is quite probable.
I’ve been using Partridge Big Mouth Doubles in various sizes when using tube flies the past few years, but now they seem to be discontinued, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations of a similar style double hook? I’m not so keen on the heavier gauge ones that seem to be more readily...
