Another attempt at a mallard winged fly.
Far from perfect but one of the best attempts at this pattern I've ever made. Although the bar isn't too high for me on that! :lol:
Again, no mallard went in the bin tying this one either which is all I really want.
I'm looking forward to using this...
I am sitting looking out of the window as storm Dennis is starting to hit contemplating the new season ahead.
Part of the enjoyment I have is getting and trying good new tackle. So this year I am really looking forward to trying a 14’ 9wt sage igniter in Norway in June. I haven’t bought it yet...
Out at the vice today and put this together...
I suppose its as good a way as any to wish you all a very happy Christmas and I'll look forward to what the tying section brings in 2020.
Happy Christmas everyone!!!
So it all starts a week tomorrow in Japan.
I'd like to begin by wishing Japan all the best as they are the first country outside the "traditional' s " to host the World Cup so hope it all goes well for them.
Secondly lets look forward to some good rugby, and sporting behaviour by both players...
Have been using these for about three sessions since changing running lines in the hope it would reduce the twists on the running line, that bit worked but I watched my Scandi outbound disappear from out the rod luckily in making an anchor and not in the forward cast or with a fish on.
Counting down to Sunday when we go up for a week.
Not too disheartened by the weather as last year the river was +3” all week and I had three, all of them in bright sunshine.
As well as the fishing, looking forward to Pie & Chips in the Craig Bar in Grantown, a huge bowl of Cullen Skink in the...
Need a bit of advice I am using a Oracle Scandi 12,9inch Rod AFTM 8 along with Barrio Switch Line 8/9, on the forward cast it makes a screeching noise, this happens with single / double spey and circle cast and roll casts.
Any advice would be most appreciated
Very new to salmon (and fly) fishing, but my family recently came into a membership in a camp on the Miramichi so I figured it was time to start getting some serious information about the sport in my home country! Looking forward to learning from you all and sharing the success as it comes if I...
Hi. Im coming back to salmon fishing after many years away. I grew up on the River wye in Herefordshire, where i cought my first Salmon at the grand age of 10. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and pick your brains from time to time.
Its soon getting to the time of year when the Grilse runs are back, those great summer days, fishing the heads and Tails of Pools, throwing a hitch fly or Collie Dog across to see if anything has a go....
My favorite Grilse fly over the years has become an Ayrshireman (but I'm no expert), but...
So tomorrow is the first day of the coarse closed season on our rivers. (England & Wales)
That means that I will have the river all to myself with no disruption to my working the pools :cool:
Who else is looking forward to the next 3 months of peace as it may not be for much longer.
Finally got off my backside and decided to join the forum. I live in South Wales and mainly fish the Usk with an occasional jaunt further afield. I'm looking forward to joining in on the forum where I can.
Tight lines for the coming season.
Hands up all those looking forward to the 1st!
I am looking forward to the season in general. As I get older the cabin fever gets worse. You'd think it would be the opposite, but I guess I am a hopeless addict.
Anyway - best of luck to any and all who fish the river this year. Let us hope it's...
