    I've seen fish still very much tartan on the Ness webcam and wondered how long does the mending stage take? Is it similar time to the colouring up process when they enter the fresh water, or does it take much longer?
  4. North American Fly Patterns
    Squidro variants, shrimpy type things, and the pink thing at the bottom is made from a replacement skirt for a "Shimano Lucanus" sea fishing"jig", so I decided to try one in fresh water, I'll just add a white orange or pink/purple single collar on top for variation.

    What are folks thoughts on sharpening hooks?? In particular rivals? Is the magic gone once they are blunt or do you give them a tickle?? One of my current favourite flys is tied on rival hooks and I’ve heard mixed reviews and they seem to be loved or hated. My personal experience is fresh out...

    Now that we are seeing a collapse of the back end runs on numerous systems are we going to see 100 C&R at this time of year the same as happened to the spring stock due to their poor returns based on years gone bye ? I can see fishermen now being left with a small window of taking a fresh...

    We take woodend every year and this was the first year back after the floods and the refurbishments to the cottage and main house. On our arrival we were greeted by Julian with a bottle of red and white wine, we checked over Garden Cottage and what a transformation a real transformation...

    In view of the fly size issue on the Horsburough thread, thought I'd lob in a starter for 10. Few years back on t'Dee very early in the season it were reet cold and inclement as its inclined to be in the opening few weeks of the season.Any way me and my chums were all tooled up with Wet 2's and...

    Managed this wee fella today in low clear water. Also enjoyed watching a big croc go 3m up a pool twice waving his head out of the water. Seems some fresh fish made an appearance today as well. Know of two (seen the pics) a few miles from where I was....bloody typical, lol.

After the installation of video cameras, two...

    My son has been fishing since small, and has caught salmon on spinner and worm but 3 years ago turned to fly only - after a lot of time and effort, sometimes being the only one to not catch on the river and some near misses yesterday he finally got not one but two on Garynahine. Both released...
